Chairman of the Osh City Military Court Bakyt Arabaev announced on 16 October that the trial against six local officials, connected with the Aksy tragedy, would begin in the town of Mailuu-Suu on 17 October. The trial was scheduled for 30 September initially, then was postponed till 15 October but was not held because only one out of six defendants appeared in the court. Police opened fire at a protest demonstration in the Aksy district of the southern Jalal-Abad Province on 17 and 18 March and killed five demonstrators, however, the six local officials are accused of power abuse only.
Prosecutor General Chubak Abyshkaev announced on 15 October that additional investigation must be done in the case, because some accused officials gave recently new evidences on who ordered opening fire at a protest demonstration in Aksy last March. However, one of the defendants, former deputy head of the Jalal-Abad province police department Abdymital Kalbaev told RFE/RL correspondent on 16 October that he released all the information on it during the investigation.
