Group of Mazhilis deputies wants explanation on situation faced by some media outlets

At the session of Kazakh Parliament's Lower Chamber - Mazhilis, held today, February 27, a group of deputies led by Serikbay Alibayev officially sent a query to Kazakh Minister of Culture, Information and Social Concord Mukhtar Qul-Mukhammet, asking to give explanations over situation faced by a private TV-company "Irbis" in Pavlodar, Northern Kazakhstan and Respublika weekly in Almaty. All publishing houses in Almaty refuse to print Respublika's outputs, meanwhile Pavlodar City Court has ruled to suspend Irbis television station's operations for three months. According to Serikbay Alibayev, such events are politically motivated and may be defined as attempts to curb press freedom in Kazakhstan.
