Kyrgyzstan: On List Of Registered Terrorist 1,279 People

Posted by Info on 23/01/2011

Kyrgyz Interior Minister Zarylbek Rysaliev announced that the country had 1,279 people registered as terrorists.
During a speech delivered before the Kyrgyz parliament’s committee for defense and security issues on January 18, Rysaliev offered details about the registered terrorists’ backgrounds and affiliations.

Of the 1,279 “terrorists”, according to Rysaliev, 1,192 support Hizb ut-Tahrir, 49 are Wahhabis, 32 are members of the Akramiya movement, and two belong to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan — all groups or movements that have been branded extremist and banned throughout Central Asia.

How, exactly, one gets registered with the authorities as a terrorist? And if there is a difference between a registered and unregistered terrorist, just how many unregistered terrorists are there roaming around Kyrgyzstan?
