President of Kyrgyzstan not to withdraw suits against journalists

President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev won’t withdraw lawsuits against journalists. He stated this today in the public park to the memory of the March revolution.

According to Almazbek Atambayev, they are not journalists, they are slanderers. «We must stop the time of slanderers. Journalism should be honest and objective," he said.

The President noted, speaking of the march in support of freedom of speech, that these are not defenders. «The same Edil Baisalov framed SDPK when we had difficult time. We had to pay the Bakiyevs 16 million soms for his exploits, and he fled. Where were these defenders, when Pavlyuk was killed, Sygak Abdyldaev mutilated? They took good posts," the President said.

So, the fourth power must also be responsible. The time has come. One must answer for his words. If to forgive, then not the slanderers.

The President promised that if he flies to the United States in September and meet with Donald Trump, he would talk about Radio Liberty.

The head of state said that he would better give these hundreds of millions that he can win in international courts, which he is going to reach in the lawsuits with Radio Liberty, to children’s oncology.
