Provisions related to slavery are found in the 2010 Constitution which prohibits slavery at article 23(1). Article 381 of the 2019 Criminal Code also prohibits illegal confinement.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Kyrgyzstan which prohibits institutions and practices similar to slavery, although article 154 of the Criminal Code prohibits forcing a person under the age of sixteen into marriage, article 155 prohibits coercing a woman into marriage and kidnapping for the purpose of marrying against her will. Forced prostitution or other sexual activities, forced services, and adoption for commercial purposes may also form elements of an offence of trafficking under article 124.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Kyrgyzstan which prohibits servitude.
Provisions related to forced labour are found in the Constitution at article 23(3) and the Labour Code at article 10 which prohibit forced labour. Violations of the Labour Code are criminalised under article 143 of the Criminal Code, although penalties are limited to fines and disqualifications from holding certain positions. Forced labour may also form an element of the offence of trafficking under article 124 of the Criminal Code.
Provisions related to trafficking in persons are found in the Constitution which prohibits trafficking at article 23(1) and the Criminal Code which makes trafficking an offence under article 171.
