A rally in support of a 13-year-old girl raped by policemen takes place in Bishkek. About ten people gathered near the Supreme Court of Kyrgyzstan, where the cassation trial began. They are holding banners: «Court, be fair», «Akyikat chechim». The people and relatives of the child fear that the perpetrators may escape punishment. Law enforcement agencies asked the participants to move to park opposite the Supreme Court. Recall, the crime was committed in 2021. Suspects were detained in March 2022 - two policemen (an employee of the Juvenile Inspectorate of the Internal Affairs Department of Leninsky district and a district police officer of the Internal Affairs Department of Sverdlovsky district of the capital) and another accomplice - a security guard at Dordoi market (presumably also a former police officer). The trial began in July last year. Prior to this, consideration of the case has been repeatedly postponed. The Pervomaisky District Court of Bishkek also considered the case against the fourth rape suspect, a waiter. All four defendants know each other. As a result, the security guard at the market was sentenced to 10 years in prison to be served in a prison colony, district police officer - to 15 years in prison. Employee of the Juvenile Inspectorate of the Internal Affairs Department of Leninsky district was sentenced to 15 years in prison to be served in a prison colony. The panel of judges of the Bishkek City Court, chaired by Mirad Dineyev, commuted the sentences of the defendants, reducing the prison terms to six and nine years.
