Journalist Kabay Karabekov summoned for questioning to SCNS

The journalist Kabay Karabekov was summoned for questioning to the State Committee for National Security. He confirmed this information to 24.kg news agency. The interrogation is scheduled for today at 3.00 pm.

Kabay Karabekov noted that the reason for a meeting with the State Committee for National Security (GKNB) is his article in Kommersant newspaper with a statement that the special services of Kyrgyzstan got involved in the presidential elections. The article was published the day before.

It says that the deputy of the Parliament Kanatbek Isaev was detained last Saturday and was charged with the attempt of forcible seizure of power. A video was distributed on the Internet in which Isaev allegedly distributed money among the criminals and urged them to arrange riots on election day. The court must decide on the arrest of Kanatbek Isaev today.
