Day of the prosecutor of Kyrgyzstan (22/11)

Every year on November 22, Kyrgyzstan celebrates the Day of the Prosecutor's Office of the Kyrgyz Republic (Kyrgyz Respublikasynyn Prosecutor's Office kyzmatkerinin kүnu), established by the Decree of the Government of Kyrgyzstan No. 456 of July 25, 2000, given the significant contribution of prosecutors to ensuring the rule of law, law enforcement, protection of the rights and legitimate interests of the individual in the country and to ensure the continuity of the rich prosecutorial and investigative traditions passed down from generation to generation.

The date for the holiday was chosen due to the fact that on November 22, 1924, by a decree of the Presidium of the Revolutionary Committee of the Kara-Kyrgyz Autonomous Region of the RSFSR, a national prosecutor's office was created in the system of the People's Commissariat of Justice of the region - the first Kyrgyz supervisory body with a staff of 15 people. From this moment the history of the Kyrgyz prosecutor's office is calculated. And a week later, the first prosecutor of the Kara-Kyrgyz Autonomous Region, Mikhail Petrovich Beznosikov, was appointed.

The tasks of the employees of the prosecutor's office included supervision of the legality of acts of local authorities and administration, judicial supervision, supervision of the investigation and inquiry, and the maintenance of persons in places of punishment. And with the establishment of the USSR Prosecutor's Office in 1933, the principle of unity and centralization of prosecutorial supervision was enshrined. The main functions of the prosecutor's office were: general supervision, criminal prosecution, supervision of the implementation of laws by all participants in criminal proceedings, and the maintenance of charges in court.
