“We ask you not to spread knowingly false and speculative information. Elbasy conducts a number of consultative meetings and is in direct contact with the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, “he said.
In addition, the press secretary added that Nursultan Nazarbayev had several telephone conversations with the heads of friendly states.
“Elbasy calls on everyone to rally around the President of Kazakhstan to overcome current challenges and ensure the integrity of our country,” concluded Aidos Ukibay.
Earlier, the Sota edition, citing political scientist Arkady Dubnov, wrote that Nazarbayev may be in China, but this information has not yet been confirmed. Dubnov also told the publication that the first nephew of Nursultan Nazarbayev, a billionaire and patron of Kazakhstani religious radicals, Kairat Satybaldy, was arrested in Dubai, and the second, general and first deputy head of the NKB Samat Abish Satybaldy, was detained.
Nazarbayev himself and all his relatives, including the detainees, belong to the high Shapyrashty clan of the Uysun Senior union, which owned huge funds from the gas processing industry. The historian and orientalist Andrei Zubov writes about this. The current head of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, also has family ties with the Senior Zhuz, although in the clan system he always played the role of a “poor relative,” which soon allowed him to seriously think about his presidential career, fueled by the influence of wealthy relatives.
It also became known that at the Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai landed E35L board of the Embraer Legacy 650, which took off on the night of January 6 from the capital of Kazakhstan. Flight data was hidden. The plane may belong to the National Guard of Kazakhstan.
The non-profit group C4ADS has collaborated with OCCRP to publish investigation, according to which the unregistered property of the family of ex-President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev is located in Dubai. According to the authors of the investigation, the grandson of Nazarbayev, Nurali Aliyev, the former head of the National Security Committee Karim Massimov and the son-in-law of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Timur Kulibayev, have residences in Dubai.
