We released two more press releases on the OpenNet Initiative’s ongoing investigations into the Kyrgyz Internet. Hard to disentangle what exactly is going on. Nart has some further information. And we’ll release a full report before the end of March.
Our ONI team has just put out this press release on the Kyrgyz parliamentary elections, which we monitored from afar and in the field. Websites belonging to political parties and independent media were subject to unexplained technical failures and deliberate hacking that suggest a deliberate attempt to interfere with the functioning of the Internet during election period. Some good work by Nart and our friends in the field.
