Political prisoners’ case. Ombudsman to study attempted seizure of power charges

Ombudsman of Kyrgyzstan Tokon Mamytov met with the representative of the Committee for Protection of Political Prisoners, Zulfiya Marat. The press service of the Institute of Ombudsman of Kyrgyzstan reported.

Zulfiya Marat noted that Bektur Asanov, Kubanychbek Kadyrov, Ernst Karybekov, Bekbolot Talgarbekov, Marat Sultanov, Tolgonbai Kalmatov, convicted for an attempt to forcibly seize power, were political prisoners.

«The former Prosecutor General and the former head of the State Committee for National Security misled not only the public, but also the leadership of the country. Under the current government, people should not be prosecuted for expressing their position,» said Zulfiya Marat.

Tokon Mamytov, in his turn, assured that compliance with the laws should be a priority. He promised to study the charges and help remedy violations of the law, if any.
