Web oligarch at the forefront of information attack

By Alina Kantor

The European media frequently publishes articles in favor of certain dissidents. And so it turns out that the vast majority of these publications devoted to fugitive criminals or those who are serving these criminals. This is observed and with Kazakhstan.


The European media has long been out of the country are present in such a role, Mukhtar Ablyazov, Raw Shalabayev, Alexander Pavlov, Muratbek brothers and Bakhytzhan Ketebaev, Petrushova, Victor and Ilyas Khrapunov Leila Beketov, Igor Vinyavskiy and others.


All of them have positioned themselves as opponents of the authorities in Kazakhstan. And for this simple reason they feel at ease in the European Union, as perceived by the public as Democrats and civil libertarians.


In fact, even a simple enumeration names creates a feeling of mass protest movement in Kazakhstan. There is a desire to support the people, contributing to the development of civil society in Kazakhstan.


But as far as all these persons and others behind the scenes, supposedly, human rights activists, are part of an organized criminal group boil fugitive oligarch Mukhtar Ablyazov.


This criminal structure is somewhat similar to the Italian Mafia is engaged mainly in financial fraud. And working methods are similar. In particular, Ablyazov creatively developed the idea of ​​trade unions, which were the foundation of the public for the Italian mafia. Instead, he created an unregistered party "Alga" in Kazakhstan. His goal to register the party did not have any. Thus Ablyazov created a non-systemic opposition, which was to serve only one purpose - to create a mechanism of protection from prosecution, be a screen that hides the true criminal purpose.


In this criminal empire each had their own role and place. Deputy head of the Coordinating Committee of "Alga" is listed Muratbek Ketebaev. His younger brother Bakhytzhan - in charge of the controlled media. They are not only brothers and associates of the actual party leader Mukhtar Ablyazov, but both managed to visit their husbands editor of the newspaper "Respublika" Irina Petrushova.


Mukhtar Ablyazov daughter married the son of the ex-telemagnate and the owner of a jewelry company Leila Beketova from his first marriage. Beketov is the wife of the former mayor of Almaty Victor Khrapunov and together with him and his son Ilyas lives in Switzerland.


Raw Shalabayev - Ablyazov and his brother-in-treasurer. Alexander Pavlov, head of the security service, and a staff journalist Igor Vinyavskiy. It is clear that this is not the entire company. Battle media wing groups can be called "Open Dialog" Foundation headed by Lyudmila Kozlovskaya. It is carried out through the restoration of the image of Mukhtar Ablyazov. Here's a close-knit family is actually occupied by a display space of the EU in all matters relating to Kazakhstan. Although the reputation of the oligarch now not be able to restore any most talented journalist, an information company continues. But the reality is that Ablyazov, despite his billions, and a huge staff of assistants of media now sitting in a French prison for the theft of billions of dollars. And this fact is proved not only the French Themis, but the High Court in London. But in this story there is the absence of any immunity in Europe of this kind of fraud. And Ablyazov team raised the issue of the reform, but in fact disarming of Interpol, who detained the members of the mafia structures and interfere with criminal business. public debate was organized by the oligarchs in the context of human rights, which aims to eliminate the police professionals who interfere to grant political asylum to members of the criminal group and Pavlov Ketebaev from Spain and Poland. But these countries have not reviewed the situation in the complex, made the same mistake that I did at the time the United Kingdom. London, too, initially assigned the status of a political refugee Ablyazov. But after the court proceedings, which lasted several years, not only changed his mind, but also condemned oligarch to 22 months in prison for contempt of court. The Court judged the lawsuit Kazakh "BTA Bank" to Ablyazov, accusing him of stealing billions of dollars. Fugitive tycoon, trying to evade responsibility, brazenly lied and confused the judges, playing for time, which caused a very negative assessment of the Themis and as a result of a prison sentence. The court took drastic measures, all property and capital Ablyazov was arrested. There were continued search for new unrecorded assets in order to return the funds to the affected bank. English court found that the theft of funds took place through a specially created off-shore companies, the total number of which exceeded 1300!


The scope of activities is not limited only to Kazakhstan. Oligarch acted in Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia and other countries. Russia and Ukraine, as the most affected, appealed to France to extradite Ablyazov, providing evidence of his fraud. And judging by the last court hearing, Ablyazov soon have to go to Moscow. This once again confirms that in this case there is no political motive.


Underground oligarch, however, continues to resist. Apparently, something hopes. It controls the media are active information attack on Kazakhstan. Moreover, these calls are radical in nature. They contain appeals to the people forcibly to overthrow the head of state, in order to avoid criminal liability. This is unacceptable anywhere in the EU. Ablyazov loses, and it is increasingly felt. Its financial resources are depleted, and with it the possibility of resistance.


Recently, bills and Khrapunov Ablyazov had been frozen in the United States. Huge funds were discovered in the course of the trial, which began in May 2014 in the court of the US state of California on the claims of the Kazakh authorities. Fearing prosecution and confiscation of stolen money, V.Hrapunov and M. Ablyazov began to sell the property with a view to the urgent removal of assets from the jurisdiction of the United States. In particular, a significant reduction was made in the project for the reconstruction of the hotel in apartments in New York. Instead invested 40 million. Dollars Ablyazov and Khrapunov intended to sell its stake for 21 million. But the intervention of BTA Bank, akimat of Almaty and the Ministry of Justice of Kazakhstan transfer of funds was blocked. Currently, the US Federal Court and Court of New York State is working to return the money frozen in Kazakhstan.


We also know that each family member received a personal Khrapunov injunction on debt payment in the amount of 286.5 million francs, as well as interest on it at the rate of 5% starting from January 1, 2000. The basis of the debt claim, a possible participation Khrapunov Victor and his family in the embezzlement of public funds for personal gain, for an amount estimated at $ 300 million. Prescription was even the son of the family, who could have stolen money accounts. In general, all attempts to counter the information clan Ablyazov-Khrapunov fail. And it is not surprising that rumors of a bankruptcy of this once one of the richest families in the world. While she continues to resist, actively speaking in different media.


In this context, it is necessary to recall the events that took place in Kazakhstan in 2010. The party "Alga" has provoked then riots in Zhanaozen, which escalated into a bandit attacks on ATMs, shops and public institutions. It is noteworthy that about this time Ablyazov suffered a crushing defeat in the first part of the trial in London.


B. Ketebaev, former head of ablyazovskogo channel "K +" admitted the day before the tragic events, the channel was recorded talk show "Will the blood be shed in Zhanaozen? A number of politicians, including those in Europe, for example, Paul Murphy, knew in advance about the forthcoming pogroms.


I must admit that Ablyazov for several years is subversion, passing all bounds. For example, assistants Ablyazov - security chief Alexander Pavlov and Muratbek Ketebaev planned to conduct terrorist attacks in Kazakhstan. The explosions were to take place in early March 2012. One of them was thunder in the territory of one of the most popular parks in Almaty, which is always crowded, especially on weekends.


The Prosecutor's Office of Kazakhstan noted that the organization of acts of terrorism Pavlov was allocated funds in the amount of 25 thousand US dollars, of which the executor has been transferred 15 thousand dollars. In particular there have been attempts to establish contacts with radical religious groups.


Today, Kazakhstan is a new information attack. And Ablyazov team did not remain aloof from this process. If you examine the history of the Mafia family may be noted another disturbing symptom, namely the weakness of Europe and its vulnerability to organized crime. Schemers skillfully manipulated public opinion, put pressure on the courts and the government, turning the media freedom in the theater of the absurd. And this is a threat to national security. The time has come to take concrete decisions to address this threat.
