In an open letter published in local newspapers today, the prisoners say many death-row inmates are victims of unfair trials held under the previous regime.
The inmates say they are not seeking a blanket amnesty, but would like Bakiev to appoint a commission of judges and lawyers to re-examine their cases.
Although the death penalty remains on the books, Kyrgyzstan has observed a moratorium on executions for several years.
