Photo and video were banned during the court hearing of the case of former owner of «Vecherniy Bishkek» Alexander Kim. The decision was made today.
Thus, judge Sanzhar Chotonov rejected the petition of Alexander Kim’s defense. It should be noted that the representatives of the prosecution and the affected party opposed the shooting.
Alexander Kim is accused of abuse of authority when being the head of the commercial structure. The current owner of «Vecherniy Bishkek» Alexander Ryabushkin accuses his predecessor of illegal appropriation of dividends in the amount of 27 million soms. In his opinion, Kim, being the founder of the publishing house at that time, did not have the right to receive dividends.
Alexander Kim considers claims of Alexander Ryabushkin unreasonable, and calls the court proceedings political.
