The Pervomaisky District Court considered extension of detention term of the former First Vice Mayor of Bishkek Renat Makenov. The investigators of the State Committee for National Security applied for extension of the investigation term.
Judge Emil Kaipov changed the measure of restraint to Renat Makenov and placed him under house arrest.
