UN experts criticise "disregard of the Pamiri minority grievances" and "securitization" of GBAO

On April 20, 2022, the office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights issued a press release about an expert assessment of the situation in GBAO.
According to the press release, the experts stated: "Disregard of the Pamiri minority grievances by Tajik authorities and the securitization of the Gorno-Badakhshan autonomous region where they live could lead to a violent conflict if unaddressed." They requested the Tajikistani authorities to "respect the freedoms of peaceful assembly and of expression" and urged them to "immediately implement conflict-prevention measures that meet international human rights standards".
