Several journalists will testify in the court on April events in
Kyrgyzstan. Osunbek Zhamansariev, the representative of the victims, informed 24.kg news agency.
According to him, 45 people from the number of witnesses have been questioned today; totally 129 people are targets in the investigation. "Mainly the officers of the 9th Main Directorate of Kyrgyzstan's National Security Committee, a former State Guard Service are testifying now. The officers of Alfa special service, the Ministry of Defense, the Presidential Guard Regiment and militia officers are the next. Simple eye-witnesses as well as journalists who were in the square that day will lay before the court after them," said Osunbek Zhamansariev.
He noted that some members of the State Defense Council refused to initial indications. "They are still working in the system and in solidarity with the defendants. Perhaps they fear that they can be put on trial in the future that is why they protect the interests of the service. How is it possible to testify otherwise with the obvious fact? They claim that the shooting came only from the side of protesters and soldiers fired into the air. Allegedly none of them saw how so many people were wounded and killed," perplexed Osunbek Zhamansariev.
He added that immediately after the events on April 7 he examined the fence and the gates of the Government House. "There was shooting from the side of White House and there were evident tracks on the fence. However, there are no characteristic lesions from the side of the protestors on the fence," concluded Osunbek Zhamansariev.
