The Pervomaisky District Court of Bishkek, at the suit of the mayor’s office of the Kyrgyz capital, banned any rallies, processions and peaceful actions in the city center. The ban on public gatherings will be in effect until April 22, Interfax reports. The reasons for this decision were not reported.
It is noted that peaceful actions are allowed in the Pervomaisky district only on the territory of the Gorky public garden.
Recall that in Bishkek every Sunday activists hold peaceful rallies of opponents of the new amendments to the Constitution, and on March 8, a march in defense of women’s rights was planned in the city center.
We add that in February, the Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan appointed a new acting mayor of Bishkek. The post was received by Baktybek Kudaibergenov.
