The Tekebayev video from Manas airport in Bishkek
Here is the video referred to below. I found it on the blog of my friend in Kyrgyzstan Edil Baisalov, who got it from youtube.com. It seems to show that Tekebayev’s baggage may have been tampered with at Manas Airport in Bishkek before he left for Turkey and then Poland. Sources say that Tekebayev has been released and is on his return to Bishkek. The Polish security forces that made the arrest reportedly are saying that it was a political (not criminal incident) , but the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland plan to provide more information at a press conference scheduled for 3:00 pm. In the meantime, evidence is mounting that Tekebayev was framed. Aside from the videotape, it has been reported that Interpol was “tipped off” about Tekebayev as an alleged member of “Hizb-ut-tahrir,” who might be carrying narcotics and/or explosives. Furthermore, the court found no evidence (such as fingerprints) to suggest that this incident was anything other than a political provocation. Somebody’s head in the administration may need to roll for this one.
