It should be reminded that Abay BEGIMBETOV and a number of other activists were illegally sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment in October 2021 for their peaceful activism: participation in peaceful protests, criticism of the authorities.

A story we have heard repeatedly in different variations: gunshot wound, abduction by special forces from the hospital, torture in the pre-trial detention facility SI-18, fabricated criminal case.

All this points to the fact that it was an order to fabricate the case about "terrorists" given by high-ranking officials. Both the people who ordered it, including Nazarbayev and Tokayev, and the executors of the criminal orders themselves should be held responsible.
