KIEV, February 6 (Itar-Tass) – Ukrainian law enforcement officers have detained a Tajik national on the international wanted list, the spokesman for the Interior Ministry’s department in the Kiev region told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“We have a confirmation that a Tajik national on the Interpol wanted list has been detained,” Nikolai Zhukov said without identifying him.
He said the operation took place at the Borispol international airport on Tuesday night. He also said that the Tajik Embassy had been notified.
Earlier, Tajik authorities reported that well-known Tajik oppositionist Abdumalik Abdullajanov had been detained in Ukraine. In the early 1990s he led the government of Tajikistan. In November 1994, Abdullajanov ran for president as an alternative to Emomali Rakhmon. For a short period of time he was Tajikistan’s ambassador to Russia.
In 1995 he emigrated from Tajikistan and founded the opposition movement National Unity. According to Tajikistan’s law enforcement agencies, Abdullajanov was the mastermind of an abortive attempt of an armed rebellion in the north of the republic in November 1998.
