Omurbek Tekebayev’s supporters gathered in front of Bishkek City Court building, where the change of the measure of restraint to the leader of Ata Meken Omurbek Tekebayev will be considered today.

Now there are about 60 of them. The participants demand to release Omurbek Tekebayev and are chanting: «Atambayev ketsin!»

Approaches to the court building are blocked by white metal fences. Police officers line up behind them.
