Kazakh “dissident” thieves and murderers and the making of “colour revolutions”/I

30.06.15-opinions-Kazakh-dissident-thieves-and-murderersAre the governments of Central Asian former Soviet republics “dictatorships” marked by “despotism”, torture, random imprisonment and no justice to speak of? And are therefore thieves and murderers originating from them “opposition leaders”, “dissidents” and “victims of political persecution” pursuing “democratic reform” in their countries of origin? Even long before the wave of agitation that shook the former USSR, so-called non-governmental organisations (NGOs) operating on formerly Soviet territories but mostly funded by western state organisations and “sympathising” private parties have been active in attempts to mobilise mobs and mobsters to stand up against their governments.

The Aliyev proceedings: a tale of horned judges and devil’s advocates

The Aliyev proceedings: a tale of horned judges and devil’s advocatesShould a number of “witnesses” now appearing in court downtown Vienna in the murder trial against two of the surviving associates of Rakhat Aliyev, the main culprit in the murder case of two executives of Kazakhstan’s Nurbank back in 2007 in Almaty, in fact be seen as co-defendants? In trials during which murder scenarios are supposed to be unraveled in full detail, it is not unusual that witnesses appear to have been involved in the criminal acts on the table or in other related criminal acts.

When sensation prevails over sense: Rakhat Aliyev hysteria virus hits German weekly

When sensation prevails over sense: Rakhat Aliyev hysteria virus hits German weeklyAnother hoax? Hardly anyone in post-war history may have had so many headlines in such a short period of time since the death and subsequent dishonour of Joseph Stalin. The latest blurb is a cover story by the German weekly Der Spiegel – “accusing” a number of high-profile political veterans in Europe of something they may or may not have done but which by no means represents any violation of any law anywhere in the world with the possible exceptions of Uganda or North Korea.

The Rakhat Aliyev files: down among the dead men / II

The Rakhat Aliyev files: down among the dead men / IIWas indeed a “financial dispute” between Rakhat Aliyev and the two bank executives he murdered with a number of associates the real reason to commit such a hideous crime? Or was the murder a warning to a long list of business people and officials Aliyev was extorting that the same could happen to them if they would not respond to all demands from the criminal group? This is a question that is becoming more and more stringent by the day as proceedings in Vienna keep dragging on against two of the surviving culprits.

The Rakhat Aliyev files: down among the dead men / I

The Rakhat Aliyev files: down among the dead men / ITwo most dangerous murderers for the moment no longer haunt the Viennese public, since a court ruling, or rather overruling, reversed a suspicious decision by the judge presiding the case setting them free. They are now behind bars where they belong once more. Whereas one of them, namely Vadim Koshlyak, is believed to have been little more than a henchman who carried out orders coming from his employer Rakhat Aliyev, the dead culprit who hang himself in his prison cell shortly before he was supposed to go on trial, the other one, Alnur Mussayev who technically speaking was Aliyev’s superior in so far that he was the head of the National Security Council, the Kazakh equivalent of the American CIA, is now to be considered at least as dangerous, or perhaps even more dangerous, than his dead deputy.

The Khrapunov files: one flew over the cuckoo’s nest

The Khrapunov files: one flew over the cuckoo’s nestSwitzerland is known as the land of cuckoo clocks. It is not for nothing that this remarkable bird is known for laying its eggs in other birds’ nests. One example is former Almaty mayor Viktor Khrapunov, who together with his relatives funneled hundreds of millions in euro from funds created by revenue from real estate scams in the former Kazakh capital with the aim to whitewash it in Switzerland. At least a quarter billion has been identified as such.

Rakhat Aliyev files: new light on main culprit’s death, consorts deeper involved than thought

Rakhat Aliyev files: new light on main culprit’s death, consorts deeper involved than thoughtYet another hoax in the bloodstained Rakhat Aliyev tale: “various toxic substances” found in blood samples of the man considered to have been among the most dangerous criminals in Kazakhstan appear to have been medicine he took, on prescription and within prescriptions’ limits. It appears to be only one more attempt by defence lawyers on the main culprit’s two remaining codefendants to distract attention from the hideous fact that Austria’s justice system with the full cooperation of its judges undertakes frantic attempts to sweep one of the most bloodstaining murder cases the history of crime has known since Jack the Ripper under the carpet as the trial against the two remaining murder suspects Alnur Mussayev and Vadim Koshlyak drags on.
