According to Taalaigul Toktakunova, they will appeal against the verdict to a higher court.

Lawyers of Ata Meken party leader do not understand what they should refute, and therefore they demanded retrial of their case.

The court granted the claim and recovered from the defendants 10 million soms. Property and salary of Taalaigul Toktakunova was seized. Both of them were forbidden to leave the country.
