Ambassador Daniel B. Baer
Vienna, July 10, 2014
The United States congratulates Kyrgyzstan’s Spravedlivost for winning this year’s Max van der Stoel Award. Based in Jalalabad, Spravedlivost is a leader in fostering interethnic reconciliation since the events of June 2010. We also commend Spravedlivost for advocating for those who have been unjustly jailed, including human rights activist Azimjon. We hope that Spravedlivost will continue to make a difference in Kyrgyzstan for years to come.
