The News Corp reports that a man from the Turkestan region will receive the first injection in a process supervised by the health ministry.

Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev has reportedly allocated $37,000 for the injections to be used on the sex offenders.

Deputy health minister Lyazat Aktayeva is quoted as saying: “At the moment there has been one request for chemical castration in accordance with a court ruling."

Funds have been allocated for more than 2000 injections,” she added.

Chemical castration uses anaphrodisiac drugs to reduce the offender’s libido and sexual activity.

Explaining the rationale behind the castration, Senator Byrganym Aitimova said it is a necessity to prevent men from committing sexual violence.
