Omurbek Babanov arrives in Bishkek

Omurbek Babanov arrived in Bishkek. Judging by the information on the online display of Manas International Airport, an Aeroflot airline plane landed in Bishkek at 14.30.

Relatives, supporters, journalists, and lawyers await Omurbek Babanov near Manas-2 terminal. According to sources, employees of the State Committee for National Security are also there.

This is his second attempt to return to Kyrgyzstan. In April 2019, Omurbek Babanov made an attempt, but changed his plans at the last moment and stayed in Moscow.

The State Committee for National Security of Kyrgyzstan reminded that Omurbek Babanov is a defendant in two criminal cases — on the fact of his speech in Amir-Timur microdistrict in Osh city, where he expressed unreasonable, provocative in meaning words, and preparations for a violent seizure of power and riots, which were prevented.
