Sadyr Japarov protected by two bodyguards

The former deputy Sadyr Japarov is protected by two bodyguards. The State Penitentiary Service of Kyrgyzstan reported.

According to it, the state of health of the prisoner does not inspire fears. Sadyr Japarov said he had no complaints against the staff of the State Penitentiary Service.

«I feel myself good, two guards protect me. I was in a state of shock and I do not remember anything. I took a knife and cut myself. After that, I woke up in the hospital that is all. There was no one. I’m fine, please do not worry," he said.

The day before, Sadyr Japarov’s lawyers appealed to the head of the correctional facility with a request to strengthen the protection of their client, as, according to their information, there is a threat to his life.

Sadyr Japarov was found on the floor of a cell in detention center-1, where he was kept since March 25, with cuts on his hand and neck, he was transferred to the prison infirmary. According to him, he injured himself.

Recall, Sadyr Japarov recently resided in Cyprus. Upon his arrival, he was detained right on the border with Kazakhstan and taken to the State National Security Committee for interrogation in the criminal case about taking Emilbek Kaptagaev hostage in 2013. His supporters held a rally at the building of the State Committee demanding the release of the former deputy. The demonstrators twice tried to break through the cordon. Special services dispersed the participants of the protest. As a result, 105 people were detained for violation of public order.
