Protesters unblock Osh-Irekestam road

Alai, June 23 / Kabar /. Supporters of the arrested MP Ahmatbek Keldibekov unblocked Osh-Irkeshtam highway.

They opened the road on Sunday as a result of regular talks of government representatives with local elders. The talks involved the Vice Prime Minister Abdyrakhman Mamataliev, member of Parliament Ismail Isakov, head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations Kubatbek Boronov, Chief of the department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for Osh Suyun Omurzakov and Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Kursan Asanov. 

During negotiations requirements of A.Keldibekov’s supporters remained unchanged - to change the measure of restraint of the arrested MP, taking into account health condition of A. Keldibekov. They also asked not to prosecute participants of the protest action. 

In turn, the authorities assured them that all their demands will be considered strictly within the law. 

As was noted during the meeting one of the reasons of opening the road was approaching the holy Ramadan.

Note that the June 20 during his trip to Jalal-Abad oblast, President Almazbek Atambayev at a meeting with local residents raised the issue of overlapping road. Then he said that the people who block the way, are Muslims. "Soon a Ramadan month begins, how they will hold the post," said Atambayev, adding that true Muslims do not do that. 

Recall that Irkeshtam-Osh highway was blocked by supporters Keldibekov on May 27. Their requirement was to change the preventive measure to house arrest. 

A. Keldibekov is accused of corruption when he was the chairman of the Social Fund in 2002 - 2005 and tax services in 2008 - 2009 years and abuse of office as Speaker of the Jogorku Kenesh in 2010 - 2011.
