Expanded meeting of the Council of the Uzbek Center of National Culture of Kyrgyzstan in Osh on December 2 voted to make another appeal to President Kurmanbek Bakiyev concerning Oibek Alimjanov's assassination.

Alimjanov was murdered two months ago, and his murderers were never found. The meeting decided to appeal to the president again.

Alimjanov's murder in one of Osh cafes in early October angered the population. Leaders of the Uzbek Center of National Culture appealed to Bakiyev to take the investigation under personal control. The murderer, however, was never found.
