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.

Kyrgyzstan always strives to adhere to and fulfill all the values found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and, following the requirements of the time, conducts work also in accordance with the principles not covered in this document, President Sooronbay Jeenbekov told, speaking at the International Conference on Human Rights on Monday. The country leader stated that lately mankind has witnessed active work of organizations in different parts of the world whose activities are contrary to human rights. “We always oppose those who, using various political and religious slogans as cover, deprive a person of life, harm human health and maim them. We strongly condemn violence and support the joint actions of the world community against extremism and terrorism.

He stressed that the Kyrgyz people has treated not only people with great respect, but also protected nature and the animal world, that the worldview, humane traditions and customs of their ancestors are very well reflected in the works of classic writer Chyngyz Aitmatov. “In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, great importance is attached to the fairness of courts and transparency of judicial proceedings. At the same time, it stresses the need to prevent permissiveness of law enforcement agencies. Kyrgyzstan has recently taken decisive actions in this direction.

If your Christmas lights came in boxes like either of the two pictured above, turn them off, take them down and pack them away immediately – they could kill you. Malta’s consumer affairs authority has issued a warning about two brands of string lights, after inspections revealed that they were poorly built and susceptible to breaking down and exposing parts carrying an electrical current. “Such parts, if touched, for instance accidentally by a child, could lead to electric shock and even death,” the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority warned. The MCCAA said that all shops selling the lights had to take them off their shelves immediately. Businesses which did not do so would face MCCAA action, it warned, and customers who had bought the lights should return them to the store they purchased them from. When buying electrical decorations, consumers should keep an eye out for the CE marking – a sign which indicates that the product is compliant with EU standards and legislation. Products should also have relevant printed warnings in Maltese or English, be marked as running on 230v and have a three-pin plug. For more information , contact the Technical Regulations...
The Maltese still consume far too much antibiotics, which could cause resistance to them when they are needed later on. Sarah Carabott gets an update on the situation. At least two out of five people taking antibiotics in Malta don’t need to, according to the chairman of the National Antibiotic Committee. The practice increases the risk that treatment will not work when a patient has a bacterial infection, warns Michael Borg. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial illness but are not effective against viruses. However, there are still not enough people who are aware of this. The figures show that the Maltese are the second highest consumers of antibiotics in Europe. The practice of prescribing antibiotics for viral conditions has gone down among local doctors but their use within the community – which is where 70 per cent of the consumption takes place – continues to increase, says Prof. Borg, who is head of infection control and sterile services at Mater Dei Hospital. He puts this down partly to the ageing population, with the elderly being more susceptible to bacterial infections. But it is known that in the Mediterranean, patients expect a quick fix, while some doctors...
Walking on the pavement atBlue Grotto Avenue in Żurrieq compares to a challenge at some obstacle course. The entire pavement is riddled with large, gaping holes, which are dangerous during the day and more so in pitch darkness. If just walking is no mean feat, imagine the struggle anyone in a wheelchair or handling a pushchair have to go through. Bad impressions Passengers getting off the Turkish Airlines flight last Tuesday were greeted by a bad-tempered official, waving his arms around and urging them to “get on with it”. How unprofessional. Is this the first impression we want visitors to have of this hospitable island? Jungle rules Evidently, some motorists think they can get away with anything these days. Look at the way in which some park their cars. On the Mellieħa Bypass a car bearing foreign number plates can be seen parked there on a daily basis, blocking a service road. Yet, the owner/user gets away with it and suffers no consequences whatsoever. No hurry While efforts to have more ramps for wheelchair users are always appreciated, it would be even better if these are well-maintained. One such ramp outside the Naxxar civic centre is a case in point. A glass tile...
The Public Service Commission has been dealt a blow by the Courts which ordered it to suspend a promotion and give a government employee access to information on job interviews after he claimed the exercise was vitiated. The commission is a constitutional organ responsible for staffing and discipline within the public service. Following a law suit against the PSC and the Gozo Ministry by Joseph Bajada, an engineer who felt aggrieved by a recent promotion exercise, Mr Justice Wenzu Mintoff ordered the PSC to freeze the exercise and to give Mr Bajada access to all the information required in order to defend his position. The issue goes back to last summer when the Gozo Ministry issued a call for the post of assistant director for public cleansing in Gozo. Despite the fact that he had been deputising for the post issued for promotion since 2006, Mr Bajada, an engineer by profession, placed second in the interview and was awarded two marks less than the applicant who placed first. Feeling aggrieved, Mr Bajada filed a complaint petition to the PSC, as required by law, challenging the promotion exercise. His petition was accepted and Mr Bajada was asked to produce his comments and...
«Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. [...] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.» -- Eleanor Roosevelt I start with this quote, because it explains so succinctly what human rights are, or, at least, what they should be – that human rights apply to all, in every corner of the world. Human Rights Day is celebrated every year on December 10. Today, we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed, on this date, in 1948. The very first article of the convention states that “All human beings are born free and equal, in dignity and rights”. So how does Malta fare? Are we all treated equally, in dignity, with all rights recognised and acknowledged? There is no doubt that Malta has made great strides in terms of recognising human and civil rights. We have achieved much in recognising LGBTIQ rights. We have implemented the Istanbul Convention that recognises violence against...
