BISHKEK, November 14. /TASS/. The State National Security Committee of Kyrgyzstan has detained jointly with the republican Interior Ministry 12 active members of the extremist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir outlawed in the country, the committee’s press office said on Monday.
The extremist grouping was active in Bishkek and the Chuy region, the committee’s press office said.
"The unlawful activity of the governing cell of the religious and extremist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir has been terminated," the committee’s press office said in a statement. The law-enforcers have also cut short the activity of the extremist organization’s media platform that was used to "receive guidance and prohibited literature sent by foreign centers to extremists for the subsequent dissemination among the population of Kyrgyzstan through the channels of the underground network," the statement says.
This "media platform" was basically used to disseminate materials urging to overthrow the constitutional order in Kyrgyzstan and "build the theocratic state of the Caliphate, according to the statement.
"During the investigative measures carried out at the places of the detainees’ living as part of instituted criminal proceedings, the law-enforcers seized a large amount of extremist literature, electronic storage media, office equipment, including computers, notebooks and tablet computers, and also other real evidence of the crime activity of 12 Kyrgyz citizens that are members of the extremist organization," the statement says.
The activity of Hizb ut-Tahrir was officially banned in Kyrgyzstan and some neighboring countries of the region. The supporters of this organization consider as their goal the aim of overthrowing secular states in the region and building a new state entity, the Islamic Caliphate, on their territory.
