Staff Report

BISHKEK -- Kyrgyzstan has launched comprehensive reform of its police, which the country's Defence Council signed off on earlier, Defence Council Secretary Temir Jumakadyrov said recently, according to a September 14 report.

This fall, the parliament will begin reviewing draft laws that, if enacted, will enable such reforms to take off, he said. However, constitutional transformations are essential for such reforms to succeed, he added.

Significant proposed reforms include adjustments to some crimes' statutes of limitations and the removal of Kyrgyz terrorists' citizenship, he said.
