Passport of the ex-deputy of the Parliament of Kyrgyzstan Damirbek Asylbek uulu, who was arrested in Almaty, was declared invalid. The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Kyrgyz Republic reported.
Under the laws of Kazakhstan, if another citizenship of a person was revealed, he or she automatically loses the passport of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
«During the detention, Damirbek Asylbek uulu had a passport of a citizen of Kazakhstan, but now it has been annulled and he is being tried as a citizen of Kyrgyzstan,» the supervisory body said.
Damirbek Asylbek uulu is accused of economic smuggling as part of a transnational criminal organization.
Ulanbek Muradilov, Damirbek Asylbek uulu and Emilbek Kochorbaev were detained in Kazakhstan on February 15-16. Asylbek uulu Damirbek, who had Kazakh citizenship, is considered as the head of smugglers. In April, the Central Election Commission of Kyrgyzstan deprived him of his deputy seat.
Damirbek Asylbek uulu is charged under part 1 of article 264 (creation and management of a transnational organized group, transnational criminal organization, as well as participation in them) and part 3 of article 234 (economic smuggling) of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
