BISHKEK. Tyntchtykbek Duulatov, a member of the opposition "Arnamys" (Dignity) Party, was freed on bail today, after being detained since Monday (March 24). Head of the Bishkek police, Kengeshbek Duishebaev, and Bishkek city prosecutor, Omurbek Kutuev, gave a permission to free him on bail.
The opposition says that Duulatov was detained because of his activities during a constitutional referendum last month. Duulatov, and other representatives from the opposition's headquarters, seized a man they said falsified votes in several constituencies.
The law-enforcement bodies say that it was illegal to detain anybody without legal authority.
The leader of the party, former vice-president Feliks Kulov is still in jail. The opposition says that his case was also politically motivated.
