Ex-deputy Sadyr Japarov detained for 48 hours

Ex-deputy Sadyr Japarov is detained for 48 hours. He is in GKNB.

Recall, Sadyr Japarov recently resided in Cyprus. Today he came from Almaty. He was detained right on the border and taken away for interrogation to GKNB (State National Security Committee) on a criminal case about taking Emilbek Kaptagaev in hostages in 2013. A meeting of his supporters was held at the building of the State Committee demanding the release of the former deputy. The demonstrators twice tried to break through the cordon. Special forces dispersed participants of the rally, the detainees were taken to the district police department.
