Supporters of the ex-Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Kyrgyzstan, Kursan Asanov, gathered near the Pervomaisky District Court of Bishkek today.
Approximately 100 people demanded to release him from custody.
«In accordance with the law, he cannot be prosecuted and detained. He can be arrested only if he is detained at the crime scene. No one has the right to detained him without the consent of the Central Election Commission. No measure of restriction should be selected for him, since this is an abuse of office,» Ikramidin Aitkulov said.
The riots in Kyrgyzstan began on October 5 after thousands of people held rally to protest the outcome of the parliamentary elections. On October 6, the Central Election Commission was forced to annul them, declaring them invalid.
