Tekebayev’s case. Ata Meken deputies not to demand money from President

Deputies Almambet Shykmamatov and Aida Salyanova are not going to demand money from the President Almazbek Atambayev through court. Secretariat of the party told 24.kg news agency, refuting the statement of lawyers that the Socialists are ready to insist on compensation of moral damage in the amount of 120 million soms.

According to Almambet Shykmatov, the main thing for him is honor and dignity. «We demand an official apology and a refutation, but no money," he explained.

Note, the lawsuit on false accusations of Omurbek Tekebayev, Aida Salyanova and Almambet Shykmatov of their alleged involvement in MegaCom trust of shares through an offshore company in Belize was filed to Pervomaiskiy District Court of Bishkek.

Omurbek Tekebayev had previously stated to 24.kg news agency that Belizegate issue was a matter of principle, since he was accused almost of treason and betrayal of the party.

This is the second lawsuit filed by Ata Meken against the head of state. The first suit representatives of the party filed after the speech of Almazbek Atambayev at the ceremony of presenting state awards for the fact that the President called the party of the Socialists «stinky.»

Omurbek Tekebayev was taken into custody until April 25. He is accused of corruption and fraud.
