This recent report issued by Human Rights Watch (HRW) is the product of a March 1998 HRW fact-finding investigation. The investigation reveals that the Republic of Uzbekistan has made scant progress in moving beyond a Soviet-style repression of human rights since its independence in 1991. The report focuses especially on government intolerance towards its so-called "Independent" Muslim citizens. The report details human-rights abuses and offers recommendations to the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the International Community, and others.
