Signatures collected to change preventive measure to Aida Salyanova

Supporters of ex-Prosecutor General of Kyrgyzstan Aida Salyanova, suspected of involvement in the unlawful release of the kingpin Aziz Batukaev, are collecting signatures for changing preventive measure to her. Her sister Chinara Turdalieva told 24.kg news agency.

According to her, relatives and supporters drew up a petition to the President Sooronbai Jeenbekov. Over 7,000 signatures have already been collected.

«We don’t ask the head of state to interfere, but we want to draw his attention to the fact that Aida Salyanova has a heart condition and keeping her in detention center 1 is torture. She feels very bad. And the court extended her term of detention until August 26,» said Chinara Turdalieva and added that signatures were collected in Bishkek and Naryn — birthplace of Aida Salyanova.

Criminal case on illegal release of the crime boss Aziz Batukaev was resumed in January 2019. The doctors and a laboratory assistant, who diagnosed him with cancer, are defendants in the case. In addition, former officials and deputies are involved in it.

In particular, the police arrested the former Minister of Health Dinara Saginbaeva, ex-adviser to the head of the State Service for Punishment Execution Kalybek Kachkynaliev, former Deputy Prime Minister Shamil Atakhanov, and also the former Special Prosecutor Mairambek Akmataliev. By a court decision, Dinara Saginbaeva and Mairambek Akmataliev were released from custody. Shamil Atakhanov was placed under house arrest. Ex-Prosecutor General Aida Salyanova was arrested on June 3 after interrogation. She was placed in detention center 1 on June 5.

Lawyers asked to place the former head of the Prosecutor General’s Office under house arrest due to poor health. She was hospitalized to the National Cardiology Center on June 15. She was repeatedly transported to detention center on June 19.

Another suspect of involvement in the release of the criminal, former secretary of the Defense Council (now the Security Council) and former chairman of the State Committee for National Security Busurmankul Tabaldiev disappeared without a trace. Law enforcement agencies cannot trace the whereabouts of the 70-year-old Colonel General.
