BISHKEK, December 7. /TASS/. A member of the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization has been detained by Kyrgyzstan’s State Committee for National Security on suspicion of aiding extremists, the committee said on Monday.
"Over the course of search operation, a 46-year-old resident of the Naynskaya Region, sentenced earlier to four years in prison for distributing extremist ideology, was detained," the committee said in a statement. The suspect has been involved in "criminal activities", in particular, by aiding "members of a terrorist group" in acquiring and producing components for improvised explosive devices. Print and electronic media "of religious character" were seized at his home during the search operation, the committee noted.
"A criminal case was opened on suspicion of the crime outlined in the article on ‘illegal purchase, transfer, distribution, storing, transporting or carrying firearms, ammunition, explosives and explosive devices’," State Committee for National Security said. "The suspect was placed in a detention center of the republic’s State Committee for National Security."
