Almambet Shykmamatov to appeal decision of first instance court

The deputy of parliament from Ata Meken faction Almambet Shykmamatov intends to appeal the decision of the Pervomaisky District Court of Bishkek, which found him guilty and ordered to pay a fine of 5 million soms.

Lawyers of the leader of the Socialists faction will appeal to the Bishkek City Court as soon as the district court verdict is received.

According to Almambet Shykmamatov, the court found him guilty only to cover up the clumsy work of investigators and prosecutors who opened an ill-disguised criminal case.

The trial of the case against the Kyrgyz parliament deputy Almambet Shykmamatov ended in the Pervomaisky District Court of Bishkek the day before.

On February 17, the Prosecutor General initiated a criminal case against the former auditor of the Accounts Chamber, and now the deputy of the Parliament Almambet Shykmamatov, under Article 303 (corruption) of the Criminal Code of the Kyrgyz Republic. According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, Almambet Shykmamatov included a wife’s car in the bid, selling it to the winner of the tender — Barat Lux company — for $ 13,500, but the Prosecutor General’s Office believes that the real price of the car at that time allegedly was about $ 10,000.
