Bishkek City Court Upholds Previous Court Verdict Against Independent Newspaper

Bishkek, April 28. The Bishkek city court upheld a previous verdict against the independent newspaper "Kyrgyz Ordo". The Birinchi Mai district court of the capital city in January 15, this year, passed the verdict ordering the newspaper to pay about 350,000 soms to the plaintiff, Aidarbek Duishaliev, who is a Kyrgyz customs official. He sued the paper for insulting him, saying that the paper published a false information on him. The editor-in-chief, Beken Nazaraliev, told RFE/RL today that he will appeal to the Kyrgyz High Court to overturn the verdict.
