DUSHANBE, September 28. /TASS/. Tajik Prosecutor General’s Office has sent an appeal to the republic’s Supreme Court, seeking dissolution of Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan, whose leaders are charged with criminal connection with a rebellious general, its sources told TASS on Monday without elaborating.
On September 16, Tajik secret services detained all party leadership, and on Sunday charged them with setting up a criminal group.
"Party activists and its leader Mukhiddin Kabiri were accused of criminal connection with the terrorist group of former Defence Minister Abdukhalim Nazarzoda," a source from a Tajik law enforcement agency said.
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. More than 100 terrorists were detained in an anti-terrorist operation that followed the attacks. The general accused of plotting the unrest was killed on September 16.
The anti-terrorist operation to eliminate the gang under the former deputy defence minister ended on the same day.
Early on Monday, Tajik law enforcement officers detained a lawyer of the arrested party activists, TASS has learned. The Interior Ministry has given no official comment on the reports.
Mukhiddin Kabiri left the country earlier this year after his party was defeated in parliamentary election.
