Taalaigul Toktakunova informed 24.kg news agency.

According to her, the former head of state does not agree that the claims have been annulled, and requires a hearing on the merits.

Recall, being the president of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev asked to find the information voiced at a press conference by Omurbek Tekebaev’s lawyers untrue. The District Court granted the claim and charged 10 million soms from the defendants.

The Bishkek City Court annulled all decisions of the previous instance in favor of Almazbek Atambayev. The Supreme Court upheld the decision of the second instance.
