Riots in Toguz-Toro took place due to negligent attitude to work of employees and management of the Internal Affairs Department for Jalal-Abad region. The First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, Major General Suyun Omurzakov stated at a meeting with the personnel.
He introduced a new chief, police colonel Kylich Zholdoshev, who had previously headed the police department of Osh city.
According to the deputy minister, due to the negligence of the Internal Affairs Department staff, the crime rate in the region has increased.
This year, 748 crimes have occurred in the territory of Jalal-Abad region.
«If you had conducted timely explanatory, operative and preventive work among the population, then the conflict in Toguz-Toro would not have happened. Did not you have any operational information? You have not fulfilled your functional duties in full. It is entirely the fault of the department’s leadership, you did not work and did not prevent this situation in time. Illegal manifestations are not monitored and are not immediately suppressed, as a result, investors suffered, police officers were beaten up,» he said.
Suyun Omurzakov noted that such facts are direct evidence of incompetence, short-sightedness, an indicator of a low level of professionalism of the chief.
«All heads will be responsible for negligent attitude to their functional duties on this incident, and this issue will be considered at the board meeting of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Each of you will be personally responsible for this incident,» he said.
