(Jul 02, 2008) On June 12, 2008, the Kyrgyz Law on Peaceful Public Gatherings was amended with a provision that defines the procedure for applying to local authorities for permits to hold a public rally. According to the amendment, rally organizers should submit their notification to the local authorities 12 days in advance. The local authorities must provide a written reply no later than six days before the date on which the rally is scheduled. A refusal to permit a demonstration can be appealed by the organizers in a court. The Law prohibits rallies and public meetings within 100 feet of highways and railways and within 150 feet of the offices of the President and Prime Minister or the buildings of Parliament, the Government, courts, penitentiary institutions, and military units. Rallies may be conducted between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. The erection of temporary dwellings, such as tents, is prohibited.
