"The meeting took stock of the understanding reached between Foreign Minister [Shah Mehmood] Qureshi and Secretary [Mike] Pompeo to rebuild the relationship based on mutual trust and respect," FO spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said in a statement.

Pakistan during the meeting stressed the need to increase commercial and economic cooperation and people-to-people contacts in order to diversity bilateral US-Pakistan relations, the handout said.

The evolving regional situation and peace and stability in Afghanistan were also discussed during the meeting.

"The US delegation appreciated the need to strengthen the bilateral relationship with Pakistan which [is] an important country of the region," the statement revealed.

The two sides agreed to continue efforts to promote the shared objectives of peace and stability in the region and to diversify their bilateral relationship.

Meeting with finance minister

The US envoy also called on Finance Minister Asad Umar.

During the meeting, Wells and Umar discussed the present state of Pakistan-US ties — with an emphasis on economic cooperation — and the overall security situation in the region, a Ministry of Finance press release said.

"Matters related to international cooperation to curb terror financing also came under discussion," the statement said.

The finance minister was quoted as saying during the meeting that Pakistan had made great strides in the war against terrorism in recent years and "it will continue to take all possible steps to root out terror financing and money laundering".

Umar shared the government's vision to reform the country's economy with the diplomat, who informed the minister about the US efforts for regional security.

The finance minister said "such visits contribute to enhancing understanding of each other’s point of view on issues of bilateral significance".

Ambassador Wells had arrived in Pakistan earlier today on a one-day visit.

The Government of Pakistan official Twitter account had announced that Wells would discuss "Pakistan-US ties, regional situation and Afghan peace process".

The purpose of the meetings between Wells and Pakistani officials would be to follow up on Foreign Minister Qureshi's meeting with Pompeo earlier this month "with a view to further strengthen bilateral relations", the spokesperson had said yesterday.

Her visit comes ahead of a meeting of regional countries on Afghan peace, involving Iran, China, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Uzbe­kistan and Turkmenistan, which is being hosted by Moscow on Friday. A delegation of Taliban will also join the talks.

          Are Kyrgyzstan’s glaciers under threat? This ecologist thinks so      Cache   Translate Page      

The Central Asian state’s Tian Shan mountain range isn’t just home to shrinking glaciers. It’s also the site of an international mining operation.

Kumtor. Image: Kalia Moldogazieva. Kumtor is an open-cast gold mining site in Kyrgyzstan’s Central Tian Shan mountain system, situated in the mountains' central permafrost massif which reaches heights of 3800-4400 metres above sea level. Commercial exploitation at Kumtor began in 1997. The site is 100% owned by the Canadian gold-mining company Centerra Gold, which manages it through its subsidiaries, the Kumtor Gold Company (KGK) and the Kumtor Operating Company (KOK). Kyrgyzstan, in its turn holds roughly 33% of shares in the company through its OJSC Kyrgyzaltyn Joint Stock Company. The gold reserves at Kumtor are assessed as amounting to 716.21 tonnes, of which 316.57 are in open cast mines and 399.64 underground.

We asked Kyrgyz ecologist Kaliya Moldogaziyeva to tell us about the environmental threat to the area from the mining operations at Kumtor, the new amendments to Kyrgyzstan’s Water Code and the future of the region’s water resources. Moldogaziyeva worked with state commissions on issues concerning Kumtor in 2005 and 2012, and was deputy head of an interagency commission on the same subject in 2011.

Could you explain to us how activity at the Kumtor mine affects Kyrgyzstan’s water resources?

The Kumtor mine is situated at the sources of the Arabel and Kumtor river system, in an area at the centre of the glacier and river runoff of Central Asia’s most important waterway, the Naryn river, which flows into the Syr Darya.

The mining site includes a quarry, a gold-processing plant and other infrastructure elements. The mining is an open-cast operation, with 14-17 tonnes of explosives used daily, and the ore is processed using cyanides.

The mining is an open-cast operation, with 14-17 tonnes of explosives used daily

The construction of the mine workings contravened Kyrgyz law from the very beginning. At the first stage of the work, KOK management started dumping waste on the Davydov glacier, which was forbidden under Rule No.79 of the country’s Unified Safety Regulations and its law “On Water”. More than a billion tonnes of rock have been removed from the quarry and dumped, as well as 77 million cubic metres of glacial mass – the equivalent of 60 billion litres of glacial water.

The volume of dumped rock and cyano-containing tailings in the tailing storage areas will grow, and all this dumped material will remain forever in the headwaters of the Naryn river, requiring continual monitoring and technical maintenance, even after the closure of the mine, which is slated for 2026.

Why were amendments made to Kyrgyzstan’s water code at the end of 2017?

These amendments, and their connection to the Kumtor glaciers, was raised by the government as early as 2015. But the MPs didn’t manage to push it through as several members of the working party on additions to the code, of which I was one, resolutely opposed it. And thanks to this active opposition by experts and environmental activists, the amendments weren’t adopted. The question of more scheduled amendments to the code was raised again in September 2017 after the signing of a new agreement between the Kyrgyzstan government and Centerra, one paragraph of which talks about:

“The full and conclusive mutual release and settlement of all existing arbitration and environmental claims, disputes, investigations and court decisions, as well as the release of the Company and its daughter subsidiaries from future claims on the same grounds as the existing environmental claims resulting from approved activity”.

In other words, this agreement sidelines the whole question of compensation for the environmental damage caused by the company over the many years of mining at Kumtor, as well as the destruction of the Davydov and Lysy glaciers.

The adoption of amendments to the Water Code, for the benefit of a single company, became the next step towards Kyrgyzstan’s legal abandonment of any claims for environmental damage caused by Centerra earlier. The adoption of amendments permitting work on the glaciers because of the mine’s strategic importance is an indulgence that allows the entire Davydov and Lysy glaciers to be destroyed without a kopeck being paid in compensation. On 16 November 2017, the Jogorku Kenesh, the Kyrgyz parliament, ratified the amendments to the water codes, according to Article 62 of which:

Any activity affecting the speeding up of the glacial melting, using coal, ash, oils or other substances or materials that could affect the state of the glaciers or the quality of the water contained in them, as well as activity connected with ice harvesting, other than on the Davydov and Lysy glaciers, is forbidden. These exceptions do not apply to previous operations on these glaciers.

But perhaps the glaciers are melting because of global warming, and not the mining operations?

Experts engaged by the Kyrgyzstan government are indeed arguing that glaciers are melting all over the world and that the Kumtor glaciers would have melted by themselves. No one, however, has mentioned the fact that the rocks overlying the gold-containing ores were stored on the glaciers to a height of 90 and 120 metres and mixed with them, so the meltwaters already contained sulphates, heavy metals and other toxic substances that got into the waterways. This was confirmed by the conclusions of the Kumtor State Commission (2012-2013) on which I worked: the concentration of toxic substances in sediments had indeed increased.

Environmental protection laws, and in particular the “Law on Water” and the “Unified Safety Regulations” have been being infringed since the start of the construction of the Kumtor mine. Glacier No. 359 in the Catalogue of Glaciers of the USSR was completely destroyed, while most of the Davydov Glacier was ruined when the mine was already in operation. The situation is now under control, but by the end of operations there, there will be 1.7 billion tonnes of waste, mixed with glacial masses, and all the problems will lie at the door of Kyrgyzstan’s government and population.

Looking ten years ahead, we will see a reduction in water resources because of global warming, and theses resources will, in addition, be irreversibly polluted, and no injection of government funds will be adequate to the task of removing the polluting substances.

What is the Kyrgyz government doing to conserve the water resources at Kumtor for the future?

Government ministers have been insisting that without the legal amendments, Kumtor will turn into a catastrophe. But it was the systematic infringement of environmental protection legislation during mining operations that has caused the present state of affairs. And instead of demanding that the company clean up its act, our highest government officials and heads of key national agencies propose legitimising these irregularities.

Jeopardising Kyrgyzstan’s water resources for the sake of extracting mineral deposits is short-sighted. Meanwhile, according to the law “On Strategic Objects of the Kyrgyzstan Republic”, structures pertaining to water management and waterworks, including glaciers, natural lakes, river, hydro engineering structures, reservoirs, dams and pumping stations are all considered Strategic Objects of the country. In the case in question, the Kyrgyzstan Republic’s government and parliament are ignoring this law. Centerra’s environmental report for 2016 includes a statement to the effect that the company and its subsidiary KGK don’t consider that the water code applies to the Kumtor project. The corporation, in other words, is laying down the law to the Kyrgyzstan government and parliament.

Government ministers have been insisting that without the legal amendments, Kumtor will turn into a catastrophe

This same government has created and promulgated a National Strategy for Sustainable Development (NSUD). Section 4.3 of this project for 2018-2040 (Environmental Safety and Adaptation to Climate Change) states, among other things, that “Kyrgyzstan’s natural resources and biosphere are the rare and unique property of its people; sustainability should therefore be the main criterion for all developmental measures and policies.”

This same strategy plan quotes World Bank data stating that the countries of Central Asia will be the second most affected world region in terms of glacier loss, including the loss of the Tian-Shan glaciers in Kyrgyzstan. The effect of the economic activity in mineral management and agriculture, as well as hunting and poaching, environmental pollution and lack of ecological accountability could all add up to an irreversible state of affairs. The new legal framework has created a basis for environmental protection and the conservation of the glaciers. But while mouthing the national strategy for sustainable development and the importance of environmental safety and compliance and the conservation of the glaciers, our government is changing the law and, among other things, introducing amendments in the water code which will allow the destruction of the glaciers at the Kumtor mine.

Even the Kyrgyzstan national anthem talks about the mountain glaciers bequeathed to us by our forebears:

“The high peaks blanketed in snow-white glaciers,
The valleys, the source of life for our people
Were preserved over many ages
By our ancestors in the Ala-Too Mountains”.

What is Kyrgyz civil society doing to stop the amendments going through?

In November 2017, then president Almazbek Atambayev signed off the “Law on Amendments to the Kyrgyzstan Republic’s Water Code”, passed by the Jogorku Kenesh after three readings, although members of the public sent him an open letter asking him not to sign that particular draft. Independent experts and civil society campaigners are still engaged in trying to have the amendment revoked. The “Democracy and Civil Society Coalition” NGO even brought legal action against the Jogorku Kenesh, on the grounds that parliamentary regulations were breached when the amendments were passed; there was no quorum and MPs voted for one another, which is forbidden when a law is being adopted. Its case was however thrown out by the courts.

A group of rights campaigners and environmental specialists is supporting the Coalition. After a consultation with me and ecologist Oleg Pechenyuk , the NGO sent a request to the Jogorku Kenesh to have an analysis of all the requisites of the draft law and its regulatory implications carried out. They received a reply: there has been an expert appraisal of its legal implications, but nothing about appraisals in terms of the ecological, civil and human rights, gender, anti-corruption implications which are required when laws are being passed. The amendments have obviously contained numerous irregularities. The Coalition is continuing to work on its legal case.

Ecologist Gulnura Beleyeva and I are intending to work with the environmental protection community to raise awareness of the work being carried out by the campaigning group and to develop an action plan for the future. It is essential to have the previous version of the water code reinstated, without the exceptions allowing the destruction of the glaciers that are an important source of water not only for Kyrgyzstan but for the whole of Central Asia.

          Transforming Tajikistan: how the Rahmon regime turned religion into a site of struggle      Cache   Translate Page      

This new book focuses on Tajik society’s turn to Islam as a means of coping with disorder.

A review of Transforming Tajikistan: State-building and Islam in Post-Soviet Central Asia by Helene Thibault.

Back in 2011, I met Mahmadali, a 38-year-old truck driver, on the outskirts of Dushanbe. He sported a clean-shaven face. Shortly after returning from Russia to his dingy Soviet-era apartment in Tajikistan’s capital city a few days earlier, Mahmadali had been stopped by police, taken to the local station, accused of being a “Wahhabi” (read: extremist) and threatened with repercussions if he did not shave off his beard. He duly went to the barber the next day. At that time, these were some of the first reports of such behaviour by Tajik police in the name of countering extremism. But in the years since, the practice has become more widespread. In 2016, for example, the chief of police in Khatlon region claimed to have “encouraged” 13,000 men to shave. Religion, for the government, is an essential part of national identity.

Over 98% of Tajiks are nominally Muslim, in other words not of Slavic origin. The government regularly invokes the country’s Islamic heritage and contribution to Islamic civilisation through the work of Bukharan-born polymath Avicenna (also known as Ibn Sina) and ninth century Islamic scholar Imam al-Bukhari. According to President Emomali Rahmon, state-sanctioned Islam is “the religion of justice, peace, security, and morality, and condemns any kind of destructive acts and violence.” But it is also a potentially dangerous force that threatens the regime. While certain forms of state-sanctioned Islam are promoted by the government, the regime has taken measures to curtail “foreign” forms of worship, such as growing beards or wearing hijabs.

These policies form part of a broader crackdown on independent voices within the country over the past decade, which culminated in the banning of the country’s leading opposition group, the Islamic Renaissance Party (IRPT) in 2015. Hundreds of academics, journalists, opposition activists and religious believers have been arrested or fled the country. At the same time, President Rahmon, who has ruled the country since 1992, has strengthened his family’s dominance over the economy and politics, being declared “Leader of the Nation” and cementing his position for life in 2016. This process of state management of religion and authoritarian consolidation forms the backdrop to Helene Thibault’s Transforming Tajikistan: State-building and Islam in Post-Soviet Central Asia.

As the Rahmon regime consolidated its power, the president gradually removed, arrested and exiled those who were incorporated into the government after the war

Tajikistan has always been considered the poor cousin of its neighbours in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan when it comes to academic studies. But recent years have seen the publication of excellent works on Tajikistan’s formation in the 1920s (Bergne, Kassymbekova), its post-war development (Kalinovsky), the late Soviet period (Bleuer and Nourzhanov), civil war (Epkenhans) and establishment of peace (Heathershaw, Driscoll, Markowitz). Thibault’s book builds on these other works and examines developments in the country up to the banning of the IRPT in 2015.

Thibault conducted fieldwork for the book between 2010 and 2011. This was arguably the time at which Tajikistan’s post-civil war consensus was starting to unravel. Following the peace accord signed between the government and opposition in 1997, the opposition was allocated 30% of government posts. But as the Rahmon regime consolidated its power, the president gradually removed, arrested and exiled those who were incorporated into the government after the war. Although the IRPT kept its two seats in Tajikistan’s lower house until 2015, the party came under increasing pressure, having its offices raided by police in October 2010 and its women’s centre destroyed by an arson attack.

At the same time, the government took steps to tighten its control of religion. In 2009, it passed a new “Law on Freedom of Conscience and Religious Organisations”, which placed restrictions over which religious organisations could register to operate in the country. Rahmon called on the estimated 2,500 Tajik citizens studying Islam abroad to return home in October 2010, arguing they were becoming “terrorists.” And the 2011 “Law on Parental Responsibility” banned under 18s from praying in mosques with the exception of funerals. Within this context of creeping authoritarianism, Thibault examines the “place of religion in society in contemporary Tajikistan”, blending analyses of these political developments with rich ethnographic vignettes illustrating how they are affecting citizens living in the country’s second largest city, Khujand.

Following a brief introduction, in Chapter One Thibault expounds on her approach, which she terms “neo-institutional ethnography,” and which combines a recognition of the continued “legacy of Soviet secularization” in the way the state approaches Islam with an examination of how Islam is lived and experienced by citizens. Chapter Two takes the reader through 70 years of Soviet secularisation, as Thibault explores debates within the Communist Party around the nature of scientific atheism and how the Soviet Union tried to manage religion in Central Asia. She examines how the Soviet authorities, having failed to eradicate religion, increasingly institutionalised it following World War II, rendering it subordinate to the state and making it an integral part of national identity, a topic discussed at greater length in a recent book by Eren Tasar.

Chapter Three takes the reader through the political history of post-independence Tajikistan from the civil war to the proclamation of Rahmon as “Leader of the Nation” in 2016. Thibault pays particular attention to the demise of the IRPT, illustrating its value to the local population through examples from her numerous visits to the party’s office in Khujand. The following chapter covers the various laws and institutions governing Islam in Tajikistan, as well as the government’s struggle to regulate the visual signs of piety in the country: beards and hijabs. The final chapter examines the impact this is having on the local population through examples from the lives of what the author calls “born-again” Muslims, individuals who have rediscovered their faith having been brought up in “secular” families. Through these examples, Thibault illustrates how Islam offers believers a moral guideline and way to cope with post-Soviet disorder characterised by a repressive regime, corruption and limited economic opportunities.

Rather than just looking at state policy or the way in which people have come to understand the world through Islam, Thibault’s book’s chief strength is its innovative approach – “institutional ethnography” – which draws attention to the interaction between the state and the population. She emphasises the way state secular policies are translated into local contexts, as well as how they are unevenly enforced and resisted by local people.

It is the state that usually politicises Islam, framing everyday expressions of piety as signs of radicalisation and transforming Islam into something in need of management

By understanding religion as a way to cope with post-Soviet disorder, Thibault’s book is a welcome riposte to alarmist accounts that view rising levels of religiosity as dangerous and potentially destabilising to the region. As the author notes: “Islamic values are sometimes seen as a way to find justice in the absence of a legitimate channel for expressing discontent.” Societal Islamisation is not the same as (violent) political radicalisation. For many, religion is part of daily life but lacks “any strong connection to political aspirations”. Instead it is the state that usually politicises Islam, framing everyday expressions of piety as signs of radicalisation and transforming Islam into something in need of management.

Transforming Tajikistan offers a snapshot of the period when the country was still transitioning to a more authoritarian regime, with repercussions on the space and possibility to conduct research on sensitive topics. The arrest of PhD student Alexander Sodiqov, from the University of Toronto, in June 2014 in Khorog on espionage charges sent out a clear warning signal to academics. Although some researchers have managed to continue to conduct research on everyday Islam in Tajikistan, replicating Thibault’s research with IRPT activists is now no longer a possibility.

Due to the prioritisation of depth over breadth inherent to the use of ethnography, a number of further questions for future research emerge from Thibault’s book. The author’s ethnography focuses on “strict believers,” individuals who pray five times a day, have been on the hajj, fast during the Holy Month of Ramadan and keep halal. Such individuals remain in a minority in Tajikistan, where most people claim to be Muslim but do not actively practice the religion on a daily basis. Survey data from the time of Thibault’s study indicated that 39% of Tajiks prayed five times a day, which is likely an overestimation.

What do these less religious individuals think of state policies to manage religion? How successful has the state campaign to shape secular citizens through education and the state media been? Why are certain individuals targeted with repressive measures and others allowed to live visibly pious lives? Such questions address how the authoritarian state operates and how effectively it exercises power. Unfortunately, research on such topics has become increasingly difficult in authoritarian Tajikistan and researchers have come under greater scrutiny from the authorities. Researched at a time when such data collection was easier, Thibault’s book is accessible, concise and offers a fantastic entry-point for those interested in knowing more about what is happening in this oft-misunderstood Central Asian republic.

          Амбиции танцора-реваншиста. Что заставило Жириновского плясать на бухарском базаре      Cache   Translate Page

Недавно состоялся визит в Узбекистан лидера российских либеральных демократов и долгожителя Государственной думы РФ Владимира Жириновского. Можно было ответить на событие, что называется, день в день, но пришлось все-таки выдержать определенную паузу. Во-первых, автор этих строк не хотел, чтобы его мнение потонуло в многоголосье стандартных комментариев, во-вторых, ждал, что может появиться какая-то более объективная информация относительно этого визита. Однако никаких принципиально новых данных так и не было опубликовано. Комментариев же было не так много, как ожидалось, и все они свелись лишь к танцу Владимира Жириновского в окружении радостно-возбужденной толпы жителей Бухары.

Этот танец, который так возбудил интернет, глава ЛДПР исполнил вместе с встречающим его ансамблем на базаре Бухары. Пользователи соцсетей сравнили его с пластикой премьер-министра Великобритании Терезы Мэй и предположили, что последняя еще будет «просить уроки» у Владимира Вольфовича. Перед глазами помимо воли встает картина, где Тереза Мэй выплясывает под мужественный аккомпанемент любимой песни Жириновского: «Не нужен нам берег турецкий, и Африка нам не нужна». А, заодно, добавим от себя, и Евросоюз тоже.

Базар, где состоялся танцевальный бенефис Владимир Вольфовича, на официальном сайте ЛДПР уже занесен на скрижали истории: «Владимир Жириновский… прогулялся по городскому рынку Бухары и оценил колорит восточного базара… побеседовал с продавцами, расспросив, как идет торговля и насколько прибыльным является их ремесло. А также сделал несколько селфи с местными жителями по их многочисленным просьбам». Можем только поздравить этих счастливчиков, которые уже сейчас зарезервировали себе место в вечности, а рано или поздно наверняка окажутся в либерально-демократическом раю.

Боевой пляс в действии

В аэропорту Бухары делегацию встретили хоким (глава) Бухарской области Уктам Барноев и первый заместитель председателя Сената Садык Сафаев. Кроме того, для встречи с Жириновским в Бухару прибыл и спикер Законодательного собрания Законодательной палаты Олий Мажлиса Республики Узбекистан Нурдинжон Исмоилов. И хотя среди встречающих не было президента Мирзиёева, однако компания все равно собралась представительная. Из чего можно понять, что Жириновского в Узбекистане все-таки ждали.

Уже по одному этому событию ясно, насколько переменилась ситуация в республике в последние годы. При жизни, первого, как его теперь называют в Узбекистане, президента страны Ислама Каримова такой визит не мог бы состояться ни при какой погоде.

Это не значит, конечно, что Каримов был столпом принципиальности. Нет, он был гибким и где-то даже беспринципным политиком, который даже в межгосударственных отношениях руководствовался исключительно собственной, зачастую сиюминутной выгодой. Но, тем не менее, Каримов прекрасно понимал, с кем он общается и все время сопоставлял себя с другими политиками. О России, например, он часто отзывался уничижительно, в частности, предъявлял отдельные претензии к ее гербу («какая-то страшная птица с двумя головами»). При этом, однако, президента Путина он признавал равным себе, а президента Медведева – нет. В Путине, видимо, он ценил некоторый тоталитарный размах, а Дмитрий Медведев с его разговорами про свободу и несвободу, вероятно, казался ему недостаточно суровым. Но даже и при Путине Каримов дистанцировался от России и от ее интеграционных инициатив, усматривая в них угрозу суверенитету Узбекистана.

Что же касается Владимира Жириновского, которого в разное время звали и ксенофобом, и антисемитом, и мигрантофобом, то при Каримове ему путь в Узбекистан был заказан. В Ташкенте он воспринимался, как скоморох при русском царе и не вызывал ничего, кроме понятного раздражения. Однако нынешние пляски в исполнении Жириновского перестали быть простой хореографией, теперь это больше похоже на боевой пляс или, точнее, на разведку боем.

Многопартийность и Ходжа Насреддин

Как известно, во второй половине октября Узбекистан посетил Владимир Путин. Тогда было подписано много различных документов экономического и политического характера. Ну, что же, подписали – и хорошо. Однако сразу после этого в Ташкент прибыла и делегация российского МИДа во главе с еще одной знаменитой плясуньей, а по совместительству – руководителем Департамента информации и печати внешнеполитического ведомства Марией Захаровой. И вот та же история, известная еще с колониальных времен: базар, селфи с торговцами, примерка узбекского халата – спасибо, хоть огненной воды и бус с собой не привезли.

Думается, такой бронебойный десант не может быть случайным – тут виден ряд последовательных действий. Сначала перед визитом Путина в Узбекистан в Москве открывают памятник Каримову – тончайший дипломатический ход, особенно, если учесть отношение Мирзиёева к предшественнику. Совершенно очевидно, что методы воздействия в России меняются: раньше в сортирах мочили, а теперь памятники открывают. Результат, впрочем, примерно один и тот же.

Точных сведений о том, как там проходили личные переговоры Путина и Мирзиёева, у нас нет. Однако картину можно отчасти восстановить по тому, как вела себя госпожа Захарова и как ведет себя господин Жириновский. И если с Захаровой все более или менее ясно, то какую рыбу и в какой воде ловит основатель ЛДПР?

Всем известно, что свет не видывал такого ярого оппозиционера, как Жириновский. Однако некоторые его поступки, прямо скажем, вызывают нехорошее изумление. Где это видано, чтобы оппозиционер предлагал президенту стать Верховным правителем? Реакция президента Путина на это предложение была очень показательной. Он улыбнулся и ответил, что личное мнение Владимира Вольфовича «не всегда совпадает с официальной позицией Российской Федерации». Замечательная формулировка! Совпадает, но не всегда, Проговорился ли Путин, пошутил ли, но это именно тот случай, когда что на уме, то на языке.

Не первый год говорят о том, что с помощью лидера ЛДПР уже давно опробуется политика Кремля, которую сам Кремль пока не хочет озвучивать, однако реакцию на которую ему надо знать заранее. Вот тут и запускается наш плясун. Репутация у него такая, что терять все равно нечего. Так что говорить он может, что угодно и предлагать самые безумные с виду проекты. В частности, такие, которые не может озвучить официальная российская власть, но очень бы хотела их реализовать. А прежде, чем за них браться, хотела бы посмотреть на реакцию заинтересованных лиц и государств.

В сущности, тут Жириновскому и ломать себя особенно не нужно. Его идея, связанная с тем, чтобы русский солдат «омыл сапоги в Индийском океане» со временем лишь уточняется географически. Так, например, еще в 2014 году лидер ЛДПР высказался относительно будущего центральноазиатских республик, предложив ликвидировать их государственность и превратить в «Среднеазиатский федеральный округ».

«Никаких республик в Средней Азии. Среднеазиатский федеральный округ – главный город Верный! Сегодня у него чужое название… Это придумали Узбекистан, Киргизия, Таджикистан, Туркмения, Казахстан. Среднеазиатский федеральный округ!» – цитировал тогда Жириновского сайт «Вести.uz». Конечно, это было не так круто, как его же предложение отгородить республики Северного Кавказа колючей проволокой, но это не помешало Казахстану и Киргизии направить в российский МИД ноты протеста. Тем более, что Киргизия и раньше была возмущена очередным «перлом» Владимира Вольфовича, который говорил, что за ее долги Россия должна отобрать у этой республики озеро Иссык-Куль.

Узбекистан не стал обращать внимания на подобные пассажи. Таджикистан тоже отнесся к этому спокойно, объяснив свою флегматичность тем, что экзальтированные высказывания Жириновского не имеют ничего общего с официальной позицией Российской Федерации. Может быть, сдержанная позиция Душанбе объяснялась тем, что руководство этой страны еще не забыло, как за год до этого Жириновский пригрозил не пускать в Россию таджикских трудовых мигрантов, а самому президенту страны Эмомали Рахмону предрек быть повешенным в центре Душанбе. Возможно, именно с этого времени Таджикистан приобрел некоторый иммунитет к политическим выпадам главного российского «либерального демократа».

Не остался без внимания Жириновского и Узбекистан, которому в 2016 году российский парламентарий отказал в праве называться отдельным независимым государством.

«Что такое Узбекистан? Это же советская власть сделала. Это были эмираты. Самарканд, допустим – там хан Самарканда. Там несколько эмиров было. Эмир Бухары. Это же сказка «Насреддин Ходжа». То есть они привыкли. Эмир по-русски – начальник. Вот есть начальник – все! … Вот смотрите, что сделали советские… коммунисты: они стали навязывать наши порядки. Тогда появились отряды басмачей, террор начался. То есть они искусственно создали в Средней Азии гражданскую войну … Если мы им навяжем многопартийность – долго не продержится: придет военный диктатор обязательно и будет еще хуже. Восток есть Восток. Вот сейчас уходит Каримов – приходит Каримов-2…», – цитировало политика радио «Эхо Москвы».

Вешать президента передумал

Перед тем, как приехать в ноябре в Бухару, Жириновский побывал в Таджикистане. Надо сказать, что этот визит был уровнем повыше узбекского. В Душанбе Владимир Вольфович встречался не со спикерами и чиновниками, а непосредственно с президентом Рахмоном. В этот раз, правда, он уже передумал вешать таджикского лидера в центре города, а, напротив, звал его «мудрым и честным политиком, не только возродившим Таджикистан, но и сделавшим его сильным и развитым государством». Впрочем, Жириновский не поскупился на дифирамбы и президенту Узбекистана Шавкату Мирзиёеву, который, по словам лидера ЛДПР, является «энергичным и грамотным руководителем». Отдельно Жириновский хвалил также таджикский и узбекский народы.

Правда, несмотря на все дифирамбы, в глазах Жириновского продолжает светиться «Среднеазиатский федеральный округ». Похоже, что для этого танцор-реваншист готов не только станцевать на бухарском базаре, но и спеть, и на гармошке сыграть. Так или иначе, итоговое заявление Владимира Вольфовича на сайте ЛДПР не оставляет сомнений в его желании вновь прибрать к рукам Среднюю Азию.

«Я согласен, что можно выезжать во все страны мира, со всеми устанавливать отношения. Но главное направление – это Юго-Восток: Киргизия, Туркмения, Таджикистан, Узбекистан, – сказал по этому поводу Жириновский. – В перспективе нужно стараться создать общее пространство: экономическое, правовое, признать документы друг друга. А, в конце концов, и какую-то общую государственную форму разработать. Может быть, как с Белоруссией, союзное государство создать».

Заявление совершенно недвусмысленное. Однако до сих пор по этому поводу из Кремля не последовало не только окриков, но даже какого-то сдержанного комментария. Может быть, восстановление Средней Азии в составе России – это не просто фантазии председателя ЛДПР? Может быть, российское руководство в очередной раз прощупывает почву для дальнейших шагов?

Впрочем, скорее всего, мы не правы. Наверняка высшее руководство России вовсе и не собирается дополнительно присоединять что-нибудь к уже имеющимся у него необъятным землям – сколько можно, в самом деле? В таком случае мы готовы признать свои выводы ошибочными и призвать читателя просто порадоваться за лидера ЛДПР, которому так легко и безответственно живется на белом свете. А вежливые зеленые человечки могут, наконец, расслабиться и сдать обратно в военторг свой камуфляж, свои автоматы и свои «искандеры».

          Indonesia hingga Suriah, Negara-Negara Ini Larang Hizbut Tahrir      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Pemerintah RI, pada 19 Juli 2017, berdasarkan Surat Keputusan Menteri Hukum dan HAM Nomor AHU-30.AH.01.08 tahun 2017 yang didasarkan pada Peraturan Pemerintah Pengganti Undang-undang (Perppu) Nomor 2 Tahun 2017 tentang Organisasi Kemasyarakatan, secara resmi telah membubarkan Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia.

Pembubaran HTI dilandasi atas ideologi yang mereka bawa -- pendirian negara syariah-- dinilai tidak sesuai dengan amanat Pancasila dan UUD 1945.

"Aktivitas yang dilakukan HTI nyata-nyata telah menimbulkan benturan di tengah masyarakat yang pada gilirannya mengancam keamanan dan ketertiban di tengah masyarakat serta membahayakan keutuhan NKRI," kata Menko Polhukam Wiranto tahun lalu.

Indonesia bukan satu-satunya negara yang melarang aktivitas Hizbut Tahrir (HT). Organisasi yang berdiri di Yerusalem pada 1953 itu juga dilarang di sejumlah negara dunia.

Hizbut Tahrir, yang didirikan oleh seorang cendekiawan bernama Taiquddin al Nabhani, dilarang atas sejumlah alasan kontroversial, mulai dari kudeta hingga terorisme.

Berikut sejumlah negara di dunia yang telah menetapkan pelarangan terhadap Hizbut Tahrir, seperti yang dirangkum oleh Liputan6.com dari Counterextremism.com:

  1. Bangladesh
  2. China
  3. Indonesia
  4. Mesir
  5. Jerman
  6. Yordania
  7. Kazakhstan
  8. Kirgiztan
  9. Lebanon
  10. Pakistan
  11. Rusia
  12. Arab Saudi
  13. Tajikistan
  14. Turki
  15. Libya
  16. Suriah 

Berikut sejumlah penjelasan mengapa HT dilarang di negara-negara tersebut, seperti Liputan6.com kutip dari berbagai sumber:

Uzbekistan

Organisasi dengan nama alias Party of Liberation atau Islamic Party of Liberation itu dilarang di Uzbekistan sejak tahun 1999, seperti dikutip dari globalsecurities.org. Alasannya karena Presiden Uzbekistan Islam Karimov menduga kuat organisasi itu sebagai dalang serangkaian serangan bom di Tashkent, Uzbekistan sepanjang tahun 1999.

Kirgiztan dan Tajikistan

Hizbut Tahrir cabang dua negara tersebut turut dijatuhi sanksi larangan beraktivitas. Menurut globalsecurities.org, larangan di dua negara itu disebabkan atas pengaruh pelarangan di Uzbekistan.

Larangan HT di Kirgiztan diterapkan pada tahun 2004 karena dinilai sebagai 'kelompok ekstrem yang signifikan'. Sementara di Tajikistan, penangkapan dan pemberian vonis penjara terhadap sejumlah anggota HT telah dilakukan sejak tahun 2005.

Mesir

Larangan HT di Mesir diberlakukan pasca peristiwa Takfir wal-Hijra (pengasingan dan pembuangan) pada 3 Juli 1977, menurut The Jamestown Foundation, lembaga kajian asal Amerika Serikat.

Anggota HT cabang Negeri Sinai itu diduga terlibat dalam peristiwa 1977 yang ditandai dengan penculikan mantan atase penting Mesir, Muhammad al-Dhahabi. Penculikan Dhahabi dilakukan untuk ditukar ganti dengan pembebasan sejumlah anggota HT yang ditahan pemerintah.

Libya

Di bawah rezim Moammar Khadafi, sejumlah anggota Hizbut Tahrir dibunuh atau ditangkap melalui sejumlah tindakan penegakan hukum yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional), seperti yang dikutip dari Middle East Policy Journal VII.

Suriah

Pelarangan dan pembubaran yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional) juga dilakukan di Suriah pasca negara pimpinan Presiden Bashar al-Assad itu dilanda perang saudara.

Menurut laporan HT, sekitar 1.200 anggotanya ditahan oleh pemerintah tanpa melalui proses hukum. Tindakan penangkapan yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah Suriah itu menuai perhatian organisasi keamnusiaan dan HAM Amnesty International pada tahun 2006.

Kazakhstan

Hizbut Tahrir dilarang pada tahun 2005, seperti yang dirujuk dari Committee for Religious Affairs of the Ministry of Culture and Sport Republik Kazakhstan. Larangan itu diterapkan oleh pemerintah karena HT diduga terlibat sebagai dalang sejumlah aktivitas terorisme di negara pecahan Uni Soviet itu.

China

Organisasi HT telah dilarang oleh pemerintah China, khususnya di Provinsi Xinjiang, wilayah yang dihuni oleh banyak etnis beragama Islam, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh kantor berita AFP. Bagi pemerintah China, HT dianggap sebagai penebar teror lain di Xinjiang.

Bangladesh

Pada tahun 2009, HT dilarang oleh pemerintah Bangladesh sebagai organisasi yang terlibat dalam aktivitas militan, seperti dikutip dari The Daily Star. Sejak saat itu, aparat penegak hukum kerap mengasosiasikan HT sebagai dalang peristiwa kontroversial, salah satunya seperti upaya kudeta 2011.

Jerman

Pada Januari 2003, Hizbut Tahrir dilarang beraktivitas di Jerman. Menurut Menteri Dalam Negeri Otto Schilly, HT dinilai melakukan penyebaran kekerasan dan kebencian terhadap kelompok semit (Yahudi).

Turki

Menurut Center for Policing Terorism, aktivitas HT dilarang di Turki. Meski begitu, organisasi itu kerap bergerak dalam kapasitas rahasia. Pada tahun 1967, pemimpin HT cabang Turki ditangkap aparat Negeri Ottoman ketika negara itu menerapkan larangannya.

Negara Lain

Sejumlah negara seperti Australia, Inggris, dan Denmark tidak melarang HT secara legal.

Namun ketiga negara tersebut menerapkan proscription (mengutuk) terhadap aktivitas terorisme yang kerap diduga kuat didalangi oleh HT, demikian seperti yang dikutip dari The Sydney Morning Herald.

Sementara itu, belum lama ini, Rizieq Shihab ditahan polisi di Arab Saudi karena memasang bendera ISIS di kediamannya di Makkah.

Kementerian Luar Negeri RI pada 7 November 2018 buka suara soal kabar penahanan Rizieq Shihab di Arab Saudi yang mencuat pada awal pekan ini.

"Pada tanggal 5 November 2018 Kemlu RI menerima pengaduan dari sejumlah pihak mengenai penahanan seorang WNI a.n. Muhammad Rizieq Shihab oleh aparat keamanan Arab Saudi di Makkah."

"Guna mengklarifikasi kebenaran informasi tersebut, Kemlu RI telah meminta Pejabat Fungsi Konsuler KJRI Jeddah untuk melakukan penelusuran."

"Dari hasil penelusuran, diperoleh konfirmasi bahwa Muhammad Rizieq Shihab sedang dimintai keterangan oleh aparat keamanan Arab Saudi di Makkah, atas dasar laporan warga negara Saudi yang melihat bendera yang diduga mirip dengan bendera ISIS terpasang di depan rumah Muhammad Rizieq Shihab di Makkah."

"Menindaklanjuti konfirmasi ini, Pejabat Fungsi Kekonsuleran KJRI Jeddah telah memberikan pendampingan kekonsuleran kepada Muhammad Rizieq Shihab sebagaimana yang diberikan kepada semua WNI yang menghadapi masalah hukum di luar negeri."

"Tentunya hukum dan aturan setempat harus dihormati."

"Informasi terakhir yang diterima Muhammad Rizieq Shihab telah dizinkan oleh otoritas keamanan Saudi untuk kembali ke rumahnya di Makkah pada sekitar 20.00 tadi malam (6 November 2018)."

Bendera Hitam Bertendensi Gerakan Ekstremis

Sementara itu, menurut keterangan resmi dari KBRI Riyadh, dijelaskan bahwa "Pada tanggal 5 November 2018 sekitar pukul 08.00 waktu setempat, tempat tinggal Muhammad Rizieq Shihab didatangi oleh pihak kepolisian Makkah karena diketahui adanya pemasangan bendera hitam yang mengarah pada ciri-ciri gerakan ekstremis pada dinding bagian belakang rumah Muhammad Rizieq Shihab."

KBRI Riyadh juga menjelaskan bahwa, "Arab Saudi sangat melarang keras segala bentuk jargon, label, atribut dan lambang apapun yang berbau terorisme seperti ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Jama’ah al-Islamiyyah dan segala kegiatan yang berbau terorisme dan ekstremisme."

Namun, baik Kemlu RI dan KBRI tak memberikan deskripsi yang merinci mengenai bendera yang dimaksud.

Kendati demikian, menurut sejumlah kelompok, bendera serupa kerap disebut sebagai 'bendera tauhid' --dengan latar belakang hitam bertuliskan enkripsi tauhid dalam Bahasa Arab berwarna putih.

Tapi di sisi lain, baik, HT, ISIS, dan Al-Qaeda acap kali menggunakan bendera yang mirip pada berbagai kesempatan.

Sementara itu, diketahui pada Oktober 2018, ketika ramai pemberitaan soal kasus penampakan dan pembakaran 'bendera tauhid' pada Hari Santri Nasional di Garut, Rizieq sendiri pernah "meminta masyarakat memasang bendera dan panji-panji dengan tulisan kalimat tauhid di rumahnya."

          Indonesia hingga Suriah, Negara-Negara Ini Larang Hizbut Tahrir      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Pemerintah RI, pada 19 Juli 2017, berdasarkan Surat Keputusan Menteri Hukum dan HAM Nomor AHU-30.AH.01.08 tahun 2017 yang didasarkan pada Peraturan Pemerintah Pengganti Undang-undang (Perppu) Nomor 2 Tahun 2017 tentang Organisasi Kemasyarakatan, secara resmi telah membubarkan Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia.

Pembubaran HTI dilandasi atas ideologi yang mereka bawa -- pendirian negara syariah-- dinilai tidak sesuai dengan amanat Pancasila dan UUD 1945.

"Aktivitas yang dilakukan HTI nyata-nyata telah menimbulkan benturan di tengah masyarakat yang pada gilirannya mengancam keamanan dan ketertiban di tengah masyarakat serta membahayakan keutuhan NKRI," kata Menko Polhukam Wiranto tahun lalu.

Indonesia bukan satu-satunya negara yang melarang aktivitas Hizbut Tahrir (HT). Organisasi yang berdiri di Yerusalem pada 1953 itu juga dilarang di sejumlah negara dunia.

Hizbut Tahrir, yang didirikan oleh seorang cendekiawan bernama Taiquddin al Nabhani, dilarang atas sejumlah alasan kontroversial, mulai dari kudeta hingga terorisme.

Berikut sejumlah negara di dunia yang telah menetapkan pelarangan terhadap Hizbut Tahrir, seperti yang dirangkum oleh Liputan6.com dari Counterextremism.com:

  1. Bangladesh
  2. China
  3. Indonesia
  4. Mesir
  5. Jerman
  6. Yordania
  7. Kazakhstan
  8. Kirgiztan
  9. Lebanon
  10. Pakistan
  11. Rusia
  12. Arab Saudi
  13. Tajikistan
  14. Turki
  15. Libya
  16. Suriah 

Berikut sejumlah penjelasan mengapa HT dilarang di negara-negara tersebut, seperti Liputan6.com kutip dari berbagai sumber:

Uzbekistan

Organisasi dengan nama alias Party of Liberation atau Islamic Party of Liberation itu dilarang di Uzbekistan sejak tahun 1999, seperti dikutip dari globalsecurities.org. Alasannya karena Presiden Uzbekistan Islam Karimov menduga kuat organisasi itu sebagai dalang serangkaian serangan bom di Tashkent, Uzbekistan sepanjang tahun 1999.

Kirgiztan dan Tajikistan

Hizbut Tahrir cabang dua negara tersebut turut dijatuhi sanksi larangan beraktivitas. Menurut globalsecurities.org, larangan di dua negara itu disebabkan atas pengaruh pelarangan di Uzbekistan.

Larangan HT di Kirgiztan diterapkan pada tahun 2004 karena dinilai sebagai 'kelompok ekstrem yang signifikan'. Sementara di Tajikistan, penangkapan dan pemberian vonis penjara terhadap sejumlah anggota HT telah dilakukan sejak tahun 2005.

Mesir

Larangan HT di Mesir diberlakukan pasca peristiwa Takfir wal-Hijra (pengasingan dan pembuangan) pada 3 Juli 1977, menurut The Jamestown Foundation, lembaga kajian asal Amerika Serikat.

Anggota HT cabang Negeri Sinai itu diduga terlibat dalam peristiwa 1977 yang ditandai dengan penculikan mantan atase penting Mesir, Muhammad al-Dhahabi. Penculikan Dhahabi dilakukan untuk ditukar ganti dengan pembebasan sejumlah anggota HT yang ditahan pemerintah.

Libya

Di bawah rezim Moammar Khadafi, sejumlah anggota Hizbut Tahrir dibunuh atau ditangkap melalui sejumlah tindakan penegakan hukum yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional), seperti yang dikutip dari Middle East Policy Journal VII.

Suriah

Pelarangan dan pembubaran yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional) juga dilakukan di Suriah pasca negara pimpinan Presiden Bashar al-Assad itu dilanda perang saudara.

Menurut laporan HT, sekitar 1.200 anggotanya ditahan oleh pemerintah tanpa melalui proses hukum. Tindakan penangkapan yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah Suriah itu menuai perhatian organisasi keamnusiaan dan HAM Amnesty International pada tahun 2006.

Kazakhstan

Hizbut Tahrir dilarang pada tahun 2005, seperti yang dirujuk dari Committee for Religious Affairs of the Ministry of Culture and Sport Republik Kazakhstan. Larangan itu diterapkan oleh pemerintah karena HT diduga terlibat sebagai dalang sejumlah aktivitas terorisme di negara pecahan Uni Soviet itu.

China

Organisasi HT telah dilarang oleh pemerintah China, khususnya di Provinsi Xinjiang, wilayah yang dihuni oleh banyak etnis beragama Islam, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh kantor berita AFP. Bagi pemerintah China, HT dianggap sebagai penebar teror lain di Xinjiang.

Bangladesh

Pada tahun 2009, HT dilarang oleh pemerintah Bangladesh sebagai organisasi yang terlibat dalam aktivitas militan, seperti dikutip dari The Daily Star. Sejak saat itu, aparat penegak hukum kerap mengasosiasikan HT sebagai dalang peristiwa kontroversial, salah satunya seperti upaya kudeta 2011.

          Megawati Ajak Semua Negara Asia Dukung Perdamaian Korut-Korsel      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Presiden ke-5 RI Megawati Soekarnoputri mengajak negara-negara di Asia untuk mendukung proses perdamaian Korea Utara dan Korea Selatan di Semenanjung Korea. Dia pun menyebut bahwa Semenanjung Korea ini sebagai the peninsula of the sovereignty of Asian nation atau semenanjung kedaulatan negara-negara Asia.

Hal itu disampaikan Megawati ketika menjadi pembicara dalam forum internasional The KOR-ASIA Forum 2018 yang digelar di Seoul, Korea Selatan, Rabu (7/11/2018).

Megawati bercerita, dirinya sempat menetaskan air mata ketika April lalu, pemimpin Korea Selatan dan Korea Utara sepakat menandatangani Deklarasi Panmunjon untuk Perdamaian, Kemakmuran dan Persatuan Semenanjung Korea. Baginya, sejarah baru sudah dituliskan, bukan hanya bagi kedua Korea, tapi bagi bangsa di Asia.

"Bagi saya, Semenanjung Korea adalah semenanjung kedaulatan bangsa Asia," kata Megawati dalam keterangannya.

Setelah perdamaian di Semenanjung Korea tercapai, sambung Megawati, tugas berikutnya untuk Asia adalah terus menerus mengawal dan mengisi perdamaian. Dan itu dilakukan tanpa membatasi diri pada hal-hal yang terjadi semata-mata di benua Asia. Ini berdasar sebuah kesadaran, bahwa saat ini semua negara di dunia bergantung satu sama lain.

"Tak ada lagi negara dan bangsa dapat mengucilkan diri dari bangsa-bangsa lain. Urusan dan masalah dunia adalah juga urusan dan masalah Asia. Masa depan Asia bergantung pada pemecahan masalah internasional yang multidimensi," ungkap Megawati.

Oleh karena itu, lanjut dia, perdamaian di Semenanjung Korea sebaiknya memang menjadi simbol persatuan bagi bangsa-bangsa Asia. Yang bersatu karena sikap bersama untuk secara aktif terlibat dalam memberikan sumbangan positif bagi perjalanan umat manusia.

"Tugas kita selanjutnya untuk tetap menggalang persatuan, tak hanya di Asia tetapi juga dengan bangsa-bangsa lain, khususnya Afrika. Asia-Afrika," ujar Megawati.

 

Menginspirasi Negara Lain

Dia menuturkan, dengan hal itu, tentu menginspirasi negara lain. Salah satunya hubungan Asia-Afrika, yang terus dijaga.

"Terima kasih para pemimpin dan rakyat Korea Utara dan Korea Selatan. Anda sekalian telah menginspirasi Asia-Afrika dan dunia bahwa tak ada tugas lebih besar yang lebih penting dari memupuk sebuah perdamaian," jelas Megawati.

Dia pun, atas nama Indonesia, akan selalu menjadi bagian dalam menjaga perdamaian di Semenanjung Korea.

"Saya Megawati Soekarnoputri, mewakili rakyat Indonesia, selalu dan selalu akan menjadi bagian dari perdamaian di Semenanjung Korea. Semenanjung Korea, semenanjung kebangkitan Asia, semenanjung dimana sayap-sayap perdamaian Asia diterbangkan ke segenap penjuru dunia," pungkasnya.

Forum itu menggelar sejumlah seri pembicaraan dan diskusi panel mengenai isu Korea dan Asean, yang didukung penuh oleh The ASEAN-Korea Centre.

Di acara itu, selain Megawati sejumlah petinggi negara lain juga menjadi pembicara. Seperti mantan Presiden Mongolia Punsalmaagiyn Orchirbat, dan Deputi PM Tajikistan Davlatali Said.

          По улице чешут мальчики-мажоры. Почему дети таджикских чиновников представляют угрозу для общества      Cache   Translate Page      

Диловар Гулов. Фото с сайта Akhbor-rus.com

В Таджикистане вынесли приговор сыну бывшего министра энергетики Шерали Гулова (Гула) 26-летнему Диловару, который обвинялся в избиении милиционера. Пятого ноября стало известно, что его приговорили к одному году лишения свободы с отбыванием наказания в колонии усиленного режима. Суд признал Гулова-младшего виновным в хулиганстве с применением оружия и предметов, используемых в качестве оружия (часть 3 статьи 237 Уголовного кодекса РТ).

Несмотря на то, что Гулову грозил срок от пяти до семи лет, ему было назначено наказание ниже низшего предела (статья 63 УК «Назначение более мягкого наказания, чем предусмотрено за данное преступление»), поскольку он «чистосердечно раскаялся» и просил прощения у пострадавшего, кроме того имеет на содержании двоих малолетних детей. Все это суд счел обстоятельствами, смягчающими вину Диловара.

На скамье подсудимых Диловар Гулов оказался за избиение сотрудника управления по борьбе с организованной преступностью (УБОП) Дилшода Нарзуллозода в июле этого года. Сотрудник УБОП остановил машину Гулова и попросил его не создавать помехи другим водителям, после чего Диловар вместе с четырьмя друзьями набросились на него и стали избивать. В результате Нарзуллозода получил сотрясение мозга, перелом носа и другие травмы.

После того как было возбуждено уголовное дело, Диловар Гулов сам явился в правоохранительные органы с повинной. Сначала его отпустили под подписку о невыезде, но в конце июля взяли под стражу. Следует отметить, что дело было возбуждено только в отношении Гулова — его друзей, также участвовавших в драке, отпустили.

В начале октября информационное агентство «Ахбор» собщило, что столичный суд района Исмоили Сомони приговорил Диловара Гулова к пяти годам лишения свободы. Но уже на следующий день в Верховном суде Таджикистана опровергли эту информацию, сообщив, что дело Гулова рассматривает суд района Шохмансур, и процесс якобы является открытым.

В это же время стало известно, что адвокаты Диловара заявили о пытках, которым его подвергли в ходе следствия. Было сообщено, что суд приостановил процесс до выяснения этих обстоятельств, направив жалобу адвокатов для проверки в УБОП МВД и районную прокуратуру, которая вела расследование. Подтвердились ли факты применения пыток, до сих пор неизвестно. Так или иначе, 2 ноября приговор Диловару Гулову был оглашен.

К слову, в инциденте с избиением Дилшода Нарзуллозода участвовали дети и других влиятельных людей. По словам источника «Ферганы», инициатором драки стал сын главы крупного производственного объединения «Таджиктекстиль» Анвара Курбонова. Имя сына источник не раскрыл, известно лишь, что он является сотрудником органов прокуратуры. Будучи пьяным он стал придираться к сотрудникам ГАИ в центре Душанбе и оскорблять их. В это время там проезжал сотрудник УБОП Дилшод Нарзуллозода, который попытался призвать молодых людей к порядку. После словесной перепалки дело дошло до потасовки. Диловар Гулов сначала пытался разнять мужчин, но потом тоже влез в драку.

Могло быть хуже, но не будет

Несмотря на заявления о том, что процесс над Гуловым проходит открыто, дело рассматривалось за закрытыми дверями, поэтому многие обстоятельства остались неизвестными. Например, почему дело было заведено только на одного человека, когда в драке участвовали пятеро? Что за оружие применялось при избиении сотрудника УБОП? И, наконец, почему дело возбуждено только по одной статье — за хулиганство, в то время как речь идет о нападении на представителя власти и неподчинении сотруднику правоохранительных органов, которые подпадают под ряд других статей УК?

«Обвинения должны были предъявить всем участникам драки. Кроме статьи 237 УК, их действия квалифицируются также по части 2 статьи 110 (Умышленное причинение тяжкого вреда здоровью), так как сотруднику УБОП сломали нос, он получил травму головы, а это — от 8 до 12 лет лишения свободы. Кроме того, при таких действиях должна быть применена часть 2 статьи 328 УК (Применение насилия в отношении представителя власти, предусматривающая от 2 до 5 лет лишение свободы. Если бы дело было возбуждено по этим статьям, Диловару Гулову по совокупности грозило бы до 12 лет лишения свободы. С учетом того, что эти преступления совершались группой лиц, наказание в таких случаях бывает более суровым. Однако Диловар Гулов легко отделался и совсем скоро окажется на свободе. Сидеть ему осталось всего несколько месяцев, так как день, проведенный в СИЗО, согласно закону, считается за два, а это значит, что шесть месяцев он уже «отсидел», так как в СИЗО находится более трех месяцев. Велика вероятность, что его могут освободить и условно-досрочно», — пояснил «Фергане» на условиях анонимности таджикский юрист.

Для тех, кто знаком с ситуацией в Таджикистане, довольно мягкий приговор Гулову не стал неожиданностью. Скорее напротив — удивил тот факт, что в отношении него вообще было возбуждено уголовное дело, и более того — оно было доведено до суда. Ведь Диловар — не просто сын бывшего министра, он еще и состоит в родстве с семьей президента Эмомали Рахмона. Его брат, Ашраф, женат на дочери главы государства.

У Диловара и ранее возникали проблемы с законом, но ему всегда удавалось избежать наказания, либо оно было символическим. Так, в марте этого года он фигурировал в числе 11 участников потасовки у ночного клуба в Душанбе. Вместе с ним в драке участвовал и зять экс-министра энергетики Дилшод Нуруллозода. Оба получили наказание в виде общественных работ.

Отец Диловара Шерали Гул тогда заявил, что его сын не участвовал в потасовке, и эти обвинения — личная месть ему, правда не уточнил, с чьей стороны. Тем не менее, как писали местные СМИ, Эмомали Рахмон порекомендовал свату лучше контролировать своего сына. После инцидента Диловара Гулова отправили на учебу в Европу. Драка с сотрудником УБОП произошла во время его приезда домой на каникулы.

Параллели

О приговоре Диловару Гулову стало известно в тот же день, когда появилась информация об инциденте в Хороге — центре Горно-Бадахшанской автономной области Таджикистана (ГБАО), где командир ОМОН МВД генерал-майор Хуршед Мухаммадзода открыл стрельбу из травматического оружия по жителям города, в результате чего двое молодых людей получили ранения. Это произошло в ночь на 5 ноября. Вечером того же дня официальные органы заявили, что пятеро молодых людей пытались помешать деятельности поста ГАИ и напасть на автомашину командира ОМОНа, в связи с чем он вынужден был применить против них специальное оружие с резиновыми пулями. Сами пострадавшие утверждают, что они просто стояли возле своих домов и общались, когда подъехала машина и из нее безо всякой видимой причины стали стрелять по ним.

Тем не менее, власти пригрозили возбудить уголовное дело в отношении этих пятерых по части 2 статьи 237 (Хулиганство, связанное с сопротивлением представителю власти либо иному лицу, выполняющему обязанности по охране общественного порядка) и статье 329 (Угроза в отношении сотрудников правоохранительных органов или военнослужащих). Молодых людей власти также обвинили в участии в ОПГ под руководством Хурсанда Мазорова — одного из местных неформальных лидеров.

Не нужно прилагать особых усилий, чтобы заметить вполне очевидную схожесть двух инцидентов: пятеро молодых людей в Душанбе и пятеро — в Хороге, в обоих случаях имеют место конфликты с представителем органа правопорядка. При этом в первом случае (с Гуловым) травмы получил страж порядка, а во втором — сами молодые люди, которых обвинили в нападении. И если в первом случае у молодых людей в руках имелось какое-то оружие, о чем свидетельствует инкриминированная Гулову статья, то в случае со стрельбой в Хороге никакого оружия у молодых людей не было.

Если оставить в стороне многие обстоятельства инцидента в Хороге, а именно — с кого все началось, насколько законно было стрелять в безоружных людей, то при всей очевидной схожести этих двух случаев видна и разность в правоприменении — по меньшей мере в том, что простых ребят из Хорога тут же обвинили в угрозе сотрудникам правоохранительных органов. При этом сразу было объявлено, что пострадавшие, которые в официальной версии представлены нападавшими, являются членами ОПГ. В случае же с Диловаром Гуловым и его друзьями не только не были применены статьи, под которые подпадали их действия, но и четверо из пятерых и вовсе не стали фигурантами дела. Остается лишь подождать, чем закончится история в Хороге — примут ли там во внимание «смягчающие обстоятельства».

«Особенные» дети

Как показывает практика, принцип неотвратимости наказания в Таджикистане всегда работает в отношении рядовых граждан, но далеко не всегда — в отношении высоких чинов и членов их семей. Детям таджикских чиновников и приближенных к президенту людей в случаях нарушения закона удается либо полностью избежать наказания, либо отделаться минимальными последствиями. Для них в законе всегда находятся лазейки для оправдания и ухода от ответственности.

В предыдущие годы представители «золотой молодежи» часто попадали в сводку новостей в связи с ДТП на автодорогах, но даже в случаях со смертельным исходом до сих пор никто из них не понес адекватного наказания.

К примеру, в апреле 2008 года сын тогдашнего секретаря Совбеза Таджикистана Амиркула Азимов Бобур, ехавший на высокой скорости, сбил насмерть одного человека, а еще пятеро, в том числе маленький ребенок, в результате этого наезда получили различные травмы. Бобур Азимов был приговорен к пяти годам лишения свободы, но вскоре амнистирован.

В октябре 2013 года по вине сына главы ГУП «Таджикские железные дороги» Амонулло Хукумова — 16-летнего Расула Амонулло — в центре Душанбе, недалеко от здания администрации президента произошла авария, в результате которой погибли два человека и еще трое получили серьезные травмы. Следствие по этому делу длилось 9 месяцев и в итоге, несмотря на наличие записей видеокамер с места события, которые подтверждали вину Расула, его признали невиновным в аварии. Наказание в этом случае понесли только его родители, которые за нарушение закона «Об ответственности родителей за обучение и воспитание детей» были оштрафованы на смехотворную сумму в 120 сомони ($15).

В октябре 2014 года другой сын Амонулло Хукумова — Рустам Хукумов — был замешан в инциденте с сотрудником ГАИ, в которого он стрелял из травматического пистолета. Этот инцидент быстро замяли. Но Рустам Хукумов «прославился» еще за долго до этого. В 2008 году он был задержан в России за сбыт наркотиков и приговорен к 9,5 годам лишения свободы. В декабре 2011 года Рустама досрочно освободили. По некоторым данным, его освобождение стало возможным после отмены вынесенного в Таджикистане приговора летчикам авиакомпании Rolkan Владимиру Садовничему и Алексею Руденко, которым назначили по 8,5 лет лишения свободы за контрабанду.

В октябре 2011 года сын председателя Верховного суда Нусратулло Абдуллоева сбил насмерть гражданку Китая. Но уголовное дело в отношении него вскоре было закрыто, так как якобы «в создавшейся ситуации Абдуллаев не имел возможности вовремя остановить управляемый им автомобиль».

Осенью того же года на своем лексусе RХ300 трёх девушек сбил сын главы Управления исполнения наказаний Минюста Изатулло Шарипова. Девушки получили различные травмы. Дело также было закрыто.

В ДТП с летальным исходом был замешан сын первого вице-премьера Таджикистана Давлатали Саидова — 23-летний Фаромуз Саидов. В сентябре 2016 года он насмерть сбил двоих человек. Дело закрыли с формулировкой «ДТП произошло из-за заводской технической неисправности автомашины, человеческий фактор в совершении ДТП отсутствует».

В прошлом году президент Рахмон раскритиковал чиновников за поведение их детей. «Скажем открыто, согласно данным, большинство лихачей на дорогах — дети чиновников и бизнесменов. Последствия лихачеств часто заканчиваются трагически. Надо покончить с этим безобразием. Министерству внутренних дел необходимо указывать при освещении таких фактов – кто именно был за рулем. Народ должен знать, кто нарушает закон на дорогах столицы», — заявил тогда Рахмон.

Но назвать виновника — еще не значит наказать его. С сынками-мажорами в Таджикистане, по крайней мере, именно так и происходит. А вынесенный Диловару Гулову приговор — это, скорее, сигнал другим отпрыскам, чтобы не наглели, раз первого предупреждения главы государства оказалось недостаточно.
