Sellers of Dordoi market gathered for a rally near the Government House in Bishkek. They insist that the State Customs Service is misleading people.
On September 8, they have already held a rally on the territory of the market. They demanded to lower customs duties and taxes on imported goods. The State Customs Service then replied that the established rates did not change, noting that they are the same for all five member states of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The protesters reminded that they had previously asked the State Customs Service to consider the possibility of a gradual increase in customs clearance fees, not exceeding 20 percent of the previous rates. «But the State Customs Service also answered in the negative, admitting their helplessness,» Altyn Kalybaev concluded.
