As it was found out at a hearing, the investigative team commissioned several types of examinations in the criminal case under investigation.

The court also decided to notify the Interior Minister and the Prosecutor General of these violations.
Recall, Farid Niyazov was formally charged with organizing riots and taking employees of Alpha special forces of the State Committee for National Security hostage during the events in Koi-Tash on August 7-8.
