Sadyr Japarov asks to permit photo, video during trial

Ex-deputy of Kyrgyzstan's Parliament Sadyr Japarov asks to permit photo and video during the trial. The accused said this today at a court hearing.

Sadyr Japarov believes that the criminal case against him has political overtone and, therefore, for objectivity, shootings should be allowed. Lawyers of Japarov appealed with the same motion to the court. The state prosecution objected it.

The presiding judge Emilbek Kaiypov allowed photo and video shooting, but only at the first hearing.

Sadyr Japarov was arrested in the framework of a criminal case instituted on the grounds of crimes under Articles threat of murder, hostage taking, hooliganism, the use of violence against a representative of the authorities of the Criminal Code of the Kyrgyz Republic.

He was detained on March 25 and placed in pretrial detention center 1.
