The court in Bishkek decided to take into custody until December 10, the former head of the presidential administration of Kyrgyzstan Farid Niyazov, who is accused of organizing the riots on October 9 this year, TASS reports.
Niyazov headed the administration of the head of state under President Almazbek Atambayev and for some time the apparatus of the current head of state Sooronbai Jeenbekov. In August 2019, he was detained on suspicion of organizing mass riots.
In early October, after the parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan, protesters released the former head of the presidential administration, Farid Niyazov.
In addition, on the night of October 6, ex-president of the country Almazbek Atambayev, ex-prime ministers Zhantoro Satybaldiev and Sapar Isakov were also released from prison. Of Atambayev's supporters, only the former mayor of Bishkek, Albek Ibraimov, remained in the pre-trial detention center.
Let us remind you that after the parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan, protests began. Those who disagreed with the voting results took to the streets, and riots broke out. Against the background of the evolving situation, the heads of four regions, the country's prime minister, the mayor of Bishkek and a number of other officials have resigned. The republic's CEC declared the results of the parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan invalid.
Earlier, the Kyrgyz parliament approved a new government, which will be headed by Sadyr Japarov.
