DUSHANBE, January 24. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rakhmon dismissed the country’s Prosecutor General Sherkhon Salimzoda on Saturday.
The president appointed Yusuf Rakhmonov new prosecutor general. Earlier, Rakhmonov was first deputy head of the presidential staff, Tajikistan’s presidential press service told TASS.
The appointment was made at an emergency session of the national parliament’s upper house. The legislators supported the president’s decision.
The newly appointed prosecutor general is 49, he has been working at prosecution authorities for 23 years.
Tajikistan’s experts say former prosecutor general was well known in the republic for his high-flown statements. Two years earlier he criticised the local initiative to return to the Russian style of writing surnames, calling it “unpatriotic.” As a result of the campaign, which followed the statement, many people, first of all officials, refused from using Russian-language (Slavic) endings in their surnames.
