DUSHANBE, September 22. /TASS/. Leaders of the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan are suspected of plotting a chain of terrorist acts targeting the international airport of capital Dushanbe, the State Committee for National Security, the State Committee for National Television and other strategic facilities, law enforcement sources told Tass on Tuesday.
"During the searches in offices of party activists detained on September 16, plans of major state facilities, photos and other materials were found," a source said.
The source reminded that in its statement of September 17, the Tajik General Prosecutor’s Office accused the party leaders, including its chairman Muhiddin Kabiri of ‘criminal connections’ with the terrorist group of former defense Minister Abdukhalim Nazarzoda.
According to TASS sources, it will shortly charge all the 13 detained party activists of extremist activities and the setting up of a criminal community.
On September 4, rebellious General Abdukhalim Nazarzoda together with his supporters staged two terrorist attacks in Tajikistan’s capital Dushanbe and Vahdat, in the country’s west.
Nazarzoda seized a large amount of weapons and hid in the Ramit Gorge. The counter-terrorism operation in the gorge, to the east of the capital Dushanbe, was launched on the same day.
The general accused of plotting the unrest was killed on September 16. The law enforcers continue the effort on detaining the remaining supporters of the rebellious general. During the operation, 27 gunmen were killed and 139 others were detained.
The republic’s Prosecutor General’s Office has launched some 100 criminal cases.
