Tajikistan to extradite suspects in Kyrgyz murder case to Kyrgyzstan

Bishkek, December 1 / Kabar /. The Tajik authorities have decided to extradite three suspects in the killing of a former Kyrgyz official, who were detained in Dushanbe, to Kyrgyzstan. Asia-Plus reports.
Tajikistan’s Interior Ministry yesterday made a decision to extradite three Kyrgyz nationals, who were detained in Dushanbe on September 14, to Kyrgyzstan.
Major-General Jourakhon Zoirov, the head of the Tajik Interior Ministry organized crime control department (UBOP), told Asia-Plus today that the Kyrgyz authorities issued an international warrant for arrest of those three Kyrgyz nationals – Kadyrbek Dosonov, 40, Chyngyz Jumagulov, 30, and Mirlan Shakuliyev, 25 – who are suspected of having been involved in the killing of former Kyrgyz presidential chief of staff Medet Sadyrkulov in 2009.
We will recall that these three men who allegedly belong to a Kyrgyz criminal group were detained in the basement of a building in Dushanbe’s Sino district in a joint operation by Tajik and Kyrgyz police on September 14.
The Tajik UBOP chief Jourakhon Zoirov noted today that representatives of the Kyrgyz law enforcement authorities will arrive in Dushanbe within the next few days to extradite the detainees to Bishkek.
Meanwhile, Zoirov added that the issue of extradition of Tajik jailbreak fugitive detained in Kyrgyzstan has not yet been solved.
One of 25 escapees from a high-profile jailbreak last year, Russian national Nizami Abiyev, was detained in the Kyrgyz capital on July 12 this year.

“According to information we received, Abiyev applied to the Kyrgyz authorities for political asylum,” the UBOP chief noted. He, however, expressed confidence that the issue of extradition of Abiyev to Tajikistan would be positively solved in the near future.
