SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN RATIFIES UN CONVENTION AGAINST TRANSNATIONAL 
ORGANIZED CRIME 
 
1. On June 4, President Nazarbayev signed legislation ratifying the 
2000 UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and three 
additional protocols against the production of firearms, their 
parts, components, and ammunition; against human trafficking, 
especially of women and children; and against smuggling migrants by 
land, sea, and air.  The legislation had been approved by Parliament 
in May. 
2. Comment: Even though most of the provisions of the Protocol 
against human trafficking were incorporated in 2006 amendments to 
Kazakhstan's anti-trafficking legislation, it is likely that the 
Protocol's ratification will result in further changes to the penal 
code  strengthing the laws against human trafficking. End Comment.
