Tekebayev's lawyers appeal against court's decision on suit of Bishkek mayor

Lawyers of Ata Meken leader Omurbek Tekebayev appealed against the decision of Pervomayskiy District Court, which ruled for the mayor of Bishkek Albek Ibraimov.

The mayor demands from the politician 1 million soms for slander. Earlier, the deputy said that a land plot, owned by Albek Ibraimov’s wife, was re-registered with the President Almazbek Atambayev, who built a house there.

According to Omurbek Tekebayev, when Albek Ibraimov worked at Manas airport, he bought a workshop for cooking on board food for $ 15 million, although it’s real cost is $ 2 million. The deputy also wondered why the mayor had about three dozen land plots.

The court ruled that Omurbek Tekebayev’s statement is untrue, and decided in favor of Albek Ibraimov.

Lawyers representing the interests of the leader of the Socialists do not agree with the verdict and filed an appeal to Bishkek City Court.
