● The State should take into consideration Resolution
No. A/HRC/47/L.22 issued by the UN Human Rights Council on July 7th, 2021, as well as other international standards in the field of human rights, which are mentioned in this section, to prevent the same violations of human rights related to the total internet shutdown in future.
● All parties, supportive of the implementation of clause 17 of Resolution No. A/HRC/47/L.22 dated July 7th, 2021, are recommended to contact the Officer of the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights to request his reviewing and evaluating the case of Kazakhstan at the upcoming 50th session of the UN Human Rights Council.
● The State is recommended to think over possibilities to maintain safety for protecting life and health of its population without internet shutdown and make relevant amendments into its legislation, in particular, to exclude certain provisions of the Law “On State of Emergency” (article 14-1 and subclause 10 of clause 1 of article 15), because otherwise human rights on opinion and expression as well as rights to information and other online rights and freedoms might be disproportionately restricted, especially in crisis or under a state of emergency or quarantine, when the lack or shortage of important information could become critical.
