The report welcomes signs of political change in the country, including ‘significantly increased freedom’ for media, civil society and political actors, and improvements in freedom of expression in some areas, but warns against ‘premature euphoria’ and highlights ‘many very grave challenges and concerns, particularly in respect to the protection of human rights, including freedom of religion or belief’.
