BISHKEK, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Supporters of the jailed ex-parliamentary speaker, Akhmatbek Keldibekov, are throwing stones and bottles at the regional administration’s building in Osh, southern Kyrgyzstan, a witness told Itar-Tass by phone on Monday.
Several hundreds of Keldibekov’s supporters gathered on Osh’s central square demanding his release from prison. Several days ago he was arrested on charges of corruption and abuse of power.
Earlier on Monday Bishkek city court refused to release former parliamentary speaker Akhmatbek Keldibekov on recognizance not to leave or to place him under house arrest, the court’s secretariat told Itar-Tass.
Keldibekov is the seventh deputy of Ata-Zhurt party (Fatherland), against whom the prosecutor’s office opened the criminal case.
The current Kyrgyz parliament includes five political parties. Aside from Ata-Zhurt these are Respublika, the Social-Democratic Party, Ata-Meken (Fatherland) and Ar-Namys (Dignity). The last three parties formed the coalition forcing Respublika and Ata-Zhurt to go into opposition. Every party enjoys practically a similar number of parliamentary mandates.
The immunity does not cover parliamentarians in Kyrgyzstan if they are accused on corruption charges.
