The appearance on Friday in the media of information about the detention of the former first deputy head of the National Security Committee of Kazakhstan (KNB) Samat Abish, the nephew of the first president of the country, Nursultan Nazarbayev, was a provocation. This was announced to the agency “ Sputnik Kazakhstan '' in the KNB.
“ Information about the alleged detention on January 7, 2022 in Alma-Ata of the first deputy chairman of the KNB of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Samat Abish, is untrue and is provocative '', & mdash; the department reported.
The detention of the son of Nursultan Nazarbayev's younger brother was reported on its Telegram channel, citing a source, Orda.kz. However, then she herself refuted her information.
“ This information has not been confirmed. Sorry, we are working in an emergency and our only task is & mdash; inform your readers. Please understand & raquo;, & mdash; stated in Orda.kz.
On January 5, Kazakh President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev dismissed both KNB chairman Karim Massimov and his first deputy Samat Abish. Both were previously called possible candidates for the post of head of state.
On January 7, the former Minister of Information and ex-adviser to President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Yermukhamet Yertysbayev, called the actions of the KNB, which, according to him, had been hiding for years information about the existing militant training camps in the country, “ national betrayal and conspiracy. '' Yertysbayev noted that the riots that took place in Kazakhstan would have been impossible without betrayal in the highest echelons of power, and the likely goal of the conspirators was to remove President Tokayev from power.
