The head of the National Center for Prevention of Torture, Bakyt Rysbekov, visited members of the Committee for Protection of Kempir-Abad reservoir, who are being kept in Bishkek remand center 1 on charges of attempt to organize mass riots in order to seize power. He told news agency the details.

According to him, many detainees, in particular Klara Sooronkulova, Gulnara Dzhurabaeva, complained about their health. He noted that Klara Sooronkulova, for example, recently underwent a serious operation. She doesn’t feel well and has a cough. Gulnara Dzhurabaeva’s chronic diseases have also become aggravated.

«We will send relevant acts and recommendations to the leadership of the Penitentiary Service with a request to hospitalize those arrested who need treatment in civilian hospitals due to the lack of opportunities for the rehabilitation of seriously ill patients in pre-trial detention centers and correctional institutions, as well as due to non-compliance with treatment standards approved by the clinical protocols of the Ministry of Health,» Bakyt Rysbekov said.

The medical service of the Penitentiary Service is not able to provide the necessary care to the remand prisoners and those serving sentences due to the lack of highly specialized doctors, weak or insufficient competence of the medical unit staff.

Therefore, the National Center for Prevention of Torture has been raising the issue of transferring the medical service of the Penitentiary Service to the Ministry of Health for several years.

The Committee for protection of Kempir-Abad reservoir was created on October 22. It includes activists, politicians and MPs. On the same day, in an interview with Kabar news agency, President Sadyr Japarov said: the authorities have information who was behind the rallies and marches on Kempir-Abad issue.

Mass arrests began on October 23. Authorities placed 26 people in jail on charges of preparing for riots.

A number of international human rights organizations such as the International Partnership for Human Rights (IPHR), the World Organization Against Torture (OMCT), the Norwegian Helsinki Committee (NHC), the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights (HFHR), Freedom Now and others issued a statement calling for the immediate release of politicians and activists arrested in Kyrgyzstan.
