UZBEKISTAN'S OMBUDSMAN REPORTS ON 2002 RESULTS

Uzbek Ombudsman Sayora Rashidova reported to the Commission on the Implementation of Constitutional Rights and Freedoms on 22 April that in 2002 her office received more than 6,000 requests for help from citizens and was able to resolve 250 of them, uza.uz reported. She added that her office has warned a number of officials about alleged violations of human rights. Most of the requests, Rashidova was reported as saying, involved public order, social protections, and alleged violations of labor laws and health-care rights. The ombudsman's office, which has been functioning since 1996, has expanded its work to include observing court trials, conducting its own investigations, and carrying out other monitoring. It has received considerable assistance from international donors that has enabled the office to set up a database of citizens' complaints, to begin sharing information between the central office and its branches in the oblasts, and to send some of its staff abroad for training. The office's actual resul
ts, however, remain meager. BB
