Uzbekistan prohibits land seizures without full compensation


TASHKENT -- Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev Wednesday (August 1) signed a decree prohibiting land seizures for government or public use without full compensation for the owner, Fergana News reported Thursday (August 2).

The order takes effect September 1. The government will compensate the owners of unlawfully seized land by taking the funds from the agency or agencies involved, according to the decree.

Up until now, land confiscation in Uzbekistan had often been a fraught affair because of the poor state of eminent domain regulations, according to Fergana News.
