Uzbekistan rejects again recommendations for being "factually wrong"

Uzbekistan rejected 14 recommendations in the framework of its Universal Periodic Review on 26 April on the basis that it considered them "factually wrong". In addition, another 44 recommendations were rejected for "not [being] part of its obligations under internationally agreed human rights standards".

Those two responses were already used by the delegation of Uzbekistan during its first UPR in December 2008 to reject 16 recommendations.

Egypt, Singapore and Uzbekistan are the only countries which have used the argument that the recommendations were "factually wrong" or "based on incorrect assumptions or premises" to reject them.
