Representatives of Butun Kyrgyzstan party and relatives of Orozaiym Narmatova held a rally in front of the Internal Affairs Department of the region in Osh city.
They demanded to release the woman and stop persecuting her for criticizing the authorities.

The protesters expressed their readiness to continue rallies in Bishkek.
Representatives of the Internal Affairs Department of the region came out to the protesters.
«We just received an investigative task to deliver Orozaiym Narmatova to the capital within the framework of pre-trial proceedings. She will be escorted to Bishkek today.
