Tajikistan: Resident of Tavildara arrested for harboring high-profile prison escapees

A 43-year-old resident of the Dehi Bolo village in Tavildara district (Rasht Valley) Dodarjon Bulbulov has been arrested for helping high-profile prison escapees reach safe location, Asia-Plus reported.

The source at the Ministry of Interior says Dodarjon Bulbulov was arrested on July 19. He has reportedly harbored five criminals in his house for eight months. The five were among 25 prisoners who broke out of the prison on the night of August 23, 2010, killing four guards.

"Bulbulov is charged with not reporting criminals' whereabouts to police," the source said, noting that all the five criminals that sheltered at Bulbulov's house have been recaptured to date.

We will recall that on May 4, the Supreme Court's military board found three other men guilty of helping the escapees reach safe locations. They were sentenced to different jail terms.
