Sixteen Georgian Drug Addicts Attempted to Assassinate Niyazov

Ashkhabad says yesterday’s assassination attempt on the Turkmenistan president was organized from Moscow
More More and more details come to light in connection with the assissnation attempt on Turkmenistan President Saparmurat Niyazov yesterday. PRAVDA.Ru reported yesterday that the investigation would officially declare that the attempt was organized by the opposition leaders. Head of the international information department in the Turkmenistan presidential administration Serdar Durdyev said today that 16 people have already been detained in connection with the attempt on the president’s life. Four of them are Georgian citizens. According to Durdyev, the detained have already given evidence proving that the attempt was organized by the opposition, by the ex-first deputy agriculture minister Saparmurat Yklymov, to be more precise. The man is currently living in Sweden.

Moreover, in fact, Serdar Durdyev accuses Russia of sponsoring terrorists. He says: “There are political figures in Russia who sponsored the organizers of an assissnation attempt on a president.” However, no evidence proving the words was given.

Turkmenistan President Saparmurat Niyazov is sure that the assassination attempt was committed by drug addicts backed by former governmental officials. It’s quite natural that the opposition denies its connection with the attempt. Saparmurat Yklymov circulated a statement saying that he himself had learned about the assassination attempt on the Turkmentistan president from news reports. The Turkmenistan opposition informs that dozens of relatives of those who had left the republic for political reasons have been recently arrested. However, no official confirmation of this statement can be obtained
