Federation of Trade Unions: Mirbek Asanakunov's supporters hold rally

Supporters of the ex-chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions of Kyrgyzstan, Mirbek Asanakunov, hold a rally at a court building in Bishkek. About 30 people participate in the protest.

«We hope for the justice and that the court will recognize Asanakunov as the only legitimate chairman. We came to support him. Health resorts are idle and cannot work normally because of the current situation,» one of the participants of the rally said.

Scandal at the Federation of Trade Unions continues for over a year. On February 5, at a meeting of the Council — the supreme governing body of the Federation — a decision was made to remove Mirbek Asanakunov from the post of chairman. Members of the Federation have repeatedly stated about pressure from Mirbek Asanakunov, using law enforcement agencies and members of Parliament.

Sagyn Bozgunbaev was registered as the Chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions of Kyrgyzstan by the judicial authorities. However, not everybody accepted this appointment. Litigation continues to this day.
