The Mayor of Bishkek Isa Omurkulov will insist on revision of the court decision on a lethal car accident to bring his son under trial, Omurkulov reported at a press conference at KyrTAG on Monday.
"The trial was terminated under the law. As a father and a citizen, I believe that all persons are equal before the law, and my son is not an exception. In this regard, I intend to ask for a judicial review of the case. In order to ensure the rule of law and fair decision, I state that my son will be punished" Omurkulov said.
Omurkulov stressed that neither he nor his son "intended to evade responsibility."
"I haven't impacted unlawfully since the day of the accident as such contradicts my moral and ethical standards. A car crash on August 15 killed three young people. As the head of a family whose member was killed, I share the bitterness of irretrievable loss," Omurkulov said.
