SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN: TWO SEX TRAFFICKERS GET SEVEN YEARS 
 
1.  On May 4, a local procurator in Aktobe, Kazakhstan announced 
that two Uzbekistani traffickers working in Kazakhstan had been 
sentenced the previous week to seven years in prison.  Post's 
contacts at the Ministry of Internal Affairs confirmed the 
convictions. 
 
2.  Investigating based on a tip received in November 2006, the 
Procurator for the Western Region Transport Police discovered that 
one trafficker tricked poor young women from Nukus, Uzbekistan into 
coming to Kazakhstan and then prostituted them.  The other 
trafficker, a woman, was arrested in December 2006 while pimping at 
a railway station.  After court deliberations, the two traffickers 
were convicted under Article 128 of the Criminal Code of Kazakhstan, 
trafficking in persons.
