TRANSNATIONAL CRIMES CONVENTIONS 
 
 
1. Kazakhstan has taken another step towards ratification of the 
Slavery Convention, Protocol of Changes and Amendments to the 
Slavery Convention, and the Additional Protocol on Slavery 
Abolishment (Slavery Convention). 
 
2. The Slavery Convention was approved by the Mazhilis (the lower 
chamber of Parliament) on December 12 and sent to the Senate (the 
upper chamber) for action. Following Senate approval, the draft law 
will be sent to President Nazarbaev for signature, which will 
complete the process of Kazakhstan's accession to this convention 
and the aforementioned protocols. 
 
3. A Mazhilis working group was formed on December 4 to consider a 
draft law on ratification of the UN Convention on Transnational 
Crimes and three additional convention protocols.  It is expected 
that Kazakhstan will accede to the UN Convention on Transnational 
Crimes shortly after ratification of the Slavery Convention.
