Ex-President of the Kyrgyzstan Atambayev will remain in custody until October 26. This decision was made by the Pervomaisky District Court in the State Committee for National Security.
According to a earlier court decision, Atambayev was to be kept in the SCNS pre-trial detention center until August 26. Lawyer Zamir Jooshev noted that this decision is "another violation of the law".
"The court granted the prosecutor's motion to extend the period of detention. On such issues, the hearing should be held in the courthouse and in open mode. Today, the court again took place in the building of the State Committee for National Security. This is against the law. There must be a court order explaining why the meeting is held in the building of the State Committee for National Security and why it is held behind closed doors. But there is no such decision", - said Jooshev.
On August 16, a meeting of the Bishkek city court was held in the building of the State Committee for National Security, at which the defense’s motion to change the preventive measure was examined. Then the court did not approve the request of the lawyers of the former president and left Atambayev under arrest until August 26.
