[29.06.2OO2] Constitutional Court Considers An Appeal On Border Agreement With China

Deputy of Parliament Ismail Isakov informed RFE/RL correspondent on 29 June that the Constitutional Court agreed to consider an appeal by the "Kyrgyzstan" parliamentary group over the last border agreement between China and Kyrgyzstan.
The group considers it illegal and demands to revoke its ratification.
President Askar Akayev signed it in 1999 and the parliament ratified it under pressure by the government last May. Kyrgyzstan transfers about 90,000 hectares of land to China according to it.
