Zhenish Razakov became a suspect in two criminal cases at once – Reuters

The Pervomaisky district court of Bishkek decided to suspend the ex-official in remand center-1 until February 24. Jenisha Razakova was arrested on the basis of the statement of former Deputy of the Supreme Council Arzybeka Burhanova.

The Home Office announced that the suspect was charged with two criminal offences.

Sam Jenish Razakov has yet to comment on the situation. But it was confirmed by “Azzatyky” that Arzybekom Burhanov, a former MP, was arrested after filing a complaint.

The detainee’s lawyer, Aibek Omurov, said that a criminal case had been opened under Article 209 (“Fraud”) of the Criminal Code of the Kyrgyz Republic, but according to him, it was done unreasonably :

‒ This matter should not have been excited. Because Jenish Razakov turned to ROVD Pervomaisky for this sum, a case was opened. Razakov was the victim of the crime. Actually, there’s a suspect for that amount, and he’s on the prowl. But, despite the fact that ten victims, write a statement about such and such an amount and take him into custody. The money was taken from another person. Now they say that Jenish Razakov took money from Burhanova. But what he took from him, he took from another person, the amount was more. Mirlan Bekitaev took ten different funds, but 1 million and went into hiding. The application for this was filed in March 2022. Then Razakov borrowed money from a person. No one told her it was Burhanova’s money. But it wasn’t until 2022 that it turns out Burhanov’s money was there. The money was taken in 2017.

The Ministry of Interior of the Kyrgyz Republic issued an official statement, stating that two criminal cases are under investigation against Jenisha Razakova. Indeed, he is suspected not only of fraud, but also of abuse of his official position (Article 337 of the Criminal Code of the Kyrgyz Republic – ed. approx.).

According to information from the department, ex-deputy Arzybek Burhanov applied to the investigative service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in September 2022 “with a request for acceptance from the mayor in connection with the illegal actions of a citizen who occupied previously a management position. The complaint states that “in the fall of 2017, former Deputy Prime Minister Jenish Razakov entered into a trust, using his official position, under the guise of carrying out entrepreneurial activities, took possession of funds in the amount of $1,000,000”.

So, at the beginning of October last year, the Investigative Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs initiated criminal proceedings for the crime, provided for by part 4 of article 209 of the Criminal Code of the Republic Kyrgyz.

Zhenish Razakov was governor of the Batken region from 2012 to 2016. In 2017 she served as secretary of the Kyrgyz Republic Security Council, and in 2018 she became an adviser to the country’s president. From 2018 to 2020 he worked as Deputy Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic and was in charge of security issues, borders and the EAEU. And in February 2020, when the process of negotiations with Tajikistan on border issues was in an active phase, he left the chair and explained his decision family circumstances.

When Zhenish Razakov was in power, various criticisms were leveled at him. So, at the beginning of 2016, when I was governor of the Batken region for ten years, the article “Special service agent of Tajikistan works in the government of Kyrgyzstan” was published on the e-tajikistan website. org. In it, author Shabnami Sobiri wrote that the head of the special services department of the Sughd region allegedly “recruited” Jenisha Razakova in 2000. It was also stated that “in 2000-2010 secret intelligence regularly provided to the Tajik side in return for large monetary rewards”.

Many Kyrgyz media reprinted this material after it was published, others tried to understand the issue by referring to this article.

Before me, the public association “Chek Ara” was created by civil activists. carried out Jenisha Razakova calls for her resignation. And the State Committee for National Security (GKNB) of the Kyrgyz Republic reported that it had checked the information on the possible involvement of the Deputy Prime Minister in the special services of Tajikistan and confirmed that “the verification of information published in Internet publications did not provide any confirmation.”

Sam Jenish Razakov also denied the plot, saying that in class MPs who have raised this issue, and its claims against certain publications and journalists have been satisfied. In an interview with “Azattyky” ten more times in 2020, he dismissed any accusations against himself:

– This is such a joke. Which agent? How? So much good is done, why spread such rumours? If I was a spy, the relevant authorities would have discovered and reported it a long time ago. I worked, my governor [Баткенской области] five years, then a lot of good things were done. Those who envy my career progress, my enemies maliciously spread such dirty rumors.
