Kazakhstan - 2006 Annual report

The regime sharply increased pressure on the media in the run-up to the 4 December 2005 presidential election, filtering opposition Internet websites, obstructing printing and distribution of independent newspapers and seizing those considered too critical of President Nursultan Nazarbayev and his associates. Journalists were often physically attacked, threatened and abused. Batyrkhan Darimbet, editor of the opposition weekly Azat, died in very suspicious circumstances and may have been killed because of his work.
