Two police officers came to the home of Zhanmurat #ASHTAYEV, a civil activist, possibly with the intention of arbitrary detention.
The civil activist was not at home at that particular time as he was at work. Having found out the time of his return, police officers promised to come back after him.
A few hours prior to the incident, officers of the traffic police officer had taken Zhanmurat ASHTAYEV’S vehicle to the impoundment lot. Because of that, the desperate activist had to address international organizations and the European Parliament in his live broadcast. He demanded to impose personal sanctions on Kazakhstani authorities and asked for a political asylum due to incessant political persecutions against him.
