The Kyrgyz Prosecutor General's Office intends to ask parliament to strip former President Askar Akayev of his immunity
The Kyrgyz Prosecutor General's Office intends to ask parliament to strip former President Askar Akayev of his immunity, Prosecutor General Azimbek Beknazarov said Thursday. "Despite President Akayev's claims that he did not receive $500,000 from high-ranking officials in the national bank, the investigation has specific and objective data that confirms this fact," Beknazarov told journalists. The prosecutor said former premier Nikolai Tanayev had been charged in absentia of abuse of office. Moreover, Aidar Akayev, the ex-president's son, is accused of extortion and money laundering, the prosecutor said. Beknazarov continued that Akayev's son-in-law had been charged with fraud, tax evasion, and embezzlement. "We have been accused of political persecution with regard to these individuals. As you see, there is no politics here - just plain crime," he said. The prosecutor said parliament could be asked to strip Akayev of his immunity in fall. A "velvet" revolution in Kyrgyzstan forced President Akayev to resign in April
