Moscow, August 13 – AiF-Moscow.
Kursan Asanov, deputy head of the Kyrgyz Ministry of Internal Affairs, who was negotiating with ex-president of the republic Almazbek Atambayev during the assault on his residence in the village of Koy-Tash last week, was dismissed, RIA Novosti reported.
Atambaev VS Jeenbekov. What can the unrest in Kyrgyzstan lead to?
As explained in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, an official investigation was conducted against Asanov. As a result, he was offered to be removed from office with the wording "for betraying the interests of the Kyrgyz police and losing confidence."
The order on the resignation of Asanov has already been signed by the Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan, Muhammedkaly Abylgaziev. Pamirbek Asanov was appointed the new deputy minister of internal affairs.
The ex-president of Kyrgyzstan Atambaev, who led the republic from 2011 to 2017, is suspected of a number of crimes, including murder and corruption, and was deprived of his immunity. Last week, during an operation to detain him, security forces tried to break into his residence in Koy-Tash three times, but they were prevented by supporters of the former leader. As a result, one special forces soldier died, 136 people were injured. The next day, Atambaev was convinced by Asanov, who personally held negotiations with him.
