SDPK comments on situation with Kursan Asanov

Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kyrgyzstan is trying to justify dismissal of Kursan Asanov by a statement on transfer of information to the supporters of Almazbek Atambayev. Deputy Chairwoman of SDPK Kunduz Zholdubaeva stated to 24.kg news agency.

According to her, Kursan Asanov played a significant role in negotiations with the former president during his detention.

«They are trying to denigrate him and justify their actions on his dismissal. Almazbek Atambayev began a dialogue with him, because his intonation showed an interest in successful negotiations. The information that he allegedly took money is a lie. Perhaps, the reason for this is his popularity, which he got after the negotiations. He did not pass on any information to us. We did not call him before and during the negotiations. This was impossible only because there was no cell communication service in Koi-Tash,» said Kunduz Zholdubaeva.

Recall, Kursan Asanov was relieved of his post with the wording «betrayal of interests of the Kyrgyz police» and «loss of confidence.» The Military Prosecutor’s Office opened a criminal case on the fact.
