Bishkek, Dec. 10, 2018. /Kabar/. Kyrgyz President Sooronbay Jeenbekov participated in the International Conference dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Monday. In his welcoming speech, he noted that the event brings together two more significant events for the country - the 25th anniversary of the Constitution of the Kyrgyz Republic and the 80th anniversary of the Jogorku Kenesh (Kyrgyz parliament). “By holding today's conference with the support of the UN, we once again prove that great importance has always been attached to the protection of human rights in our country. Both our main law and the activities of the parliament fulfill their functions through the prism of protection of humans, and I believe that the conference will be a fruitful platform for discussing many issues,” the country leader said. The President pointed out that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is one of the most significant documents for the whole world, having endured two world wars. “It has always called for the preservation of human values ​​and has been translated into all languages ​​of the world. The concept paper consisting of 30 articles was written three years after the establishment of the United Nations. Subsequently, this Declaration became the basis for international covenants on civil, political, economic and social rights in force in many countries of the world,” Jeenbekov said. The President noted that the ideas found in the Declaration are consonant with the mentality of the Kyrgyz people and their attitude to the world. “Equal rights of men and women, calls for respect for nations, languages, religions of all nations, as well as preservation of friendly relations between them - these are the values ​​and principles to which our ancestors also adhered. Our ancestors entrusted us, along with the preservation of national spiritual values, to respect the human dignity of each and everyone, and protect the rights of women and children. Therefore, we, the people of Kyrgyzstan, were the first of the countries of Central Asia to adopt the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1994,”J eenbekov noted. He added that a quarter century has passed since then, and the country sees protection of the rights of citizens as one of the main priorities.

Bishkek hosts round table on cybersecurity and cybercrime

Bishkek, Dec. 7, 2018. /Kabar/. A round table is held in Bishkek on cybersecurity and cybercrime: concepts, standards, exchange of experience. During the event, it was noted that society all over the world is increasingly relying on information and communication technologies, but at the same time, it is increasingly exposed to threats that cybercrime entails. “Cybercrime, that is, crimes committed against computer systems with the help of computers, affects both individuals and institutions, organizations and states. Moreover, evidence regarding a crime is often stored in computer systems. Access to data and preservation of “elusive” evidence on computers in the country or on cloud servers is a very complicated process,” it was noted during the round table. These crimes include, inter alia, identity theft, fraud, distributed denial of service attacks (DDOS attacks), deliberate distortion of websites against the media, civil society, individuals or institutions, as well as attacks on critical infrastructure, particularly during elections. Destabilizing actions such as interfering with election campaigns, hacking into the servers of the authorities and political parties undermine the influence of public confidence in the elections. Thus, all countries of the world need to ensure an appropriate level of cyber security, including by providing appropriate tools to prevent, investigate and punish cybercrime and Kyrgyzstan is no exception. Cybersecurity is a new direction and a new challenge for Kyrgyzstan. However, the country has already taken concrete steps to develop a comprehensive legal and regulatory framework in the field of cyber security, in particular, a national cyber security strategy has been developed.

Huawei CFO to appear in Canada court in U.S. extradition case

A top executive of China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd who is under arrest in Canada is set to appear in a Vancouver court on Friday for a bail hearing as she awaits possible extradition to the United States, Trend reports referring to Reuters. Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, 46, who is also the daughter of the company founder, was arrested on Dec. 1 at the request of the United States. The arrest, revealed by Canadian authorities late on Wednesday, was part of a U.S. investigation into an alleged scheme to use the global banking system to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran, people familiar with the probe told Reuters. The news roiled global stock markets on fears the move could escalate a trade war between the United States and China after a truce was agreed on Saturday between President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping in Argentina. Trump did not know about the arrest in advance, two U.S. officials said on Thursday, in an apparent attempt to stop the incident from impeding talks to resolve the trade dispute. Details of the case against Meng, to be heard in the Supreme Court of British Columbia, remain sparse.
