Kyrgyz Supreme Court rules for Bakiyev’s brother
BISHKEK – The Kyrgyz Supreme Court February 28 upheld the Chui Oblast Court’s decision essentially to free Akmat Bakiyev, brother of ousted president Kurmanbek Bakiyev, 24.kg reported February 28, quoting the Supreme Court’s press office.
Authorities in January transferred him to a minimum-security facility where he need appear only occasionally. They reduced his original seven-year sentence because he had served one-third of his sentence without causing problems, but the Chui Oblast prosecutor’s office and a man who accused Bakiyev of stealing his land want him re-incarcerated.
