Kyrgyz Prosecutor General’s Office takes control over former presidential chief-of-staff’s deadly car crash investigation
Investigation of the deadly car crash, which may be a cause of death of the former presidential chief-of-staff Medet Sadyrkulov, is passed to the Prosecutor General's Office following the order of the president Kurmanbek Bakiev, Kyrgyz Defense Minister Moldomusa Kongantiev said at the parliamentary session on Tuesday.
Omurbek Osmonov, 24, driver of the Audi 100, who reportedly collided into the Sadyrkulov's Lexus is now taken to a remand prison facing charges of Articles 121 and 281 of the Kyrgyz Criminal Code, reported 24.kg.
The law-enforcement agencies reportedly seized hard copies of phone calls of the passengers perished in the car crash.
Answering questions of the deputies Kongantiev noted that the former official's country house locates just 300-400km away from the accident scene, and as it was revealed in course of investigation Sadyrkulov and his family moved their stuff in there last week. This fact may explain what Sadyrkulov and his companions, who reportedly were coming home from Kazakhstan, did in that area?
According to the preliminary investigation done, Lexus was not actually moving on the moment of collision, as the driver's seat was empty, while the front passenger and the back seats were occupied, the minister said.
The investigation is ongoing.
