IBAHRI condemns LGBTQ+ ‘registry’ in Tajikistan
The Tajik Prosecutor-General’s Office announced in October 2017 that an official registry had been compiled on LGBTQ+ Tajik citizens. The announcement was given in an article published in an official journal and mentioned there were 367 homosexual men and women within the registry.
