Kazakh court finds NGO laws unconstitutional

From Gazeta.kz:

The Constitutional Council of RK has recognised the laws "On activities of branches and country offices of international and foreign non-lucrative organisations on the territory of RK" and "On changes and amendments in several legislative acts of RK on non-lucrative organisations" passed by the parliament and forwarded to the head of state for signing, as non-complying with the Constitution, KZ-today correspondent reports from Astana.

Earlier Nursultan Nazarbayev, president of Kazakhstan, addressed an appeal to the Constitutional Council requiring to check these laws on the subject of their compliance with the Constitution. These documents intended to strengthen the state control over activities of foreign and international non-lucrative organisations on the territory of Kazakhstan have provoked complaints from the NGO.
