Prosecutor General's Office refuses to review Tekebayev’s case

The Prosecutor General’s Office denied the lawyers of ex-parliament member Omurbek Tekebayev, who is serving his sentence in penal colony 47, retrial of the criminal case on newly discovered evidence. The lawyer Taalaigul Toktakunova informed 24.kg news agency.

According to her, the convicted leader of Ata Meken party considers the decision of the Prosecutor General’s Office to be unreasonable and intends to appeal it through the court.
