Constitutional Court Postpones Hearing On the Disputed Kyrgyz-Chinese Agreement Ratification

BISHKEK. The Kyrgyz Constitutional Court today postponed for a week a hearing on an appeal by a group of deputies of the Legislative Assembly (lower chamber) of Parliament over the Kyrgyz-Chinese border agreements. One of the signatories, lawmaker Ishenbai Kadyrbekov claimed illness was the reason for the postponement. Kadyrbekov, together with other two opposition deputies, the leader of the 'Asaba' (Flag) National Revival Party, Azimbek Beknazarov, and General Ismail Isakov will represent the group at the court hearings. The group appealed to the Constitutional court in May 2002, asking it to overturn the parliament's ratification of the agreements as an act against the Constitution and international procedures. However, the Government has praised the end of border disputes between China and the tiny Central Asian country as fair and in the interests of the Kyrgyz state.
