The three persons are internationally searched by police for a triple murder.
“The administration of Kyrgyz Interior Ministry has put an enquiry on the location of the three person to the law enforcement agencies of Belarus for several times already, but in their responses it was noted they did not possess such information,” Kyrgyz police representatives noted.
On the eve of the incident the Ambassador of Belarus to Kyrgyzstan was summoned to the
Kyrgyz FM where he was given a verbal note.

Current Kyrgyzstan President Almazbek Atahbayev calls Janybek (Janysh) Bakiyev “a dreadful man”.
According to Mr. Atahbayev, Janysh was in control of shooting demonstrators in April, 2010. Furthermore, he ordered shooters to aim at protesters’ heads and chests.
During the Kyrgyz Riots in 2010 around 90 persons were killed, 1,500 were injured. However they managed to occupy the governmental residence.
President Bakiyev, his younger son Marat and his brother Janysh Bakiyev — the then head of the State Security Service — had already left the country.
They were charged of mass murders and abuse of authority in absentia and are internationally searched.
Kurmanbek Bakiyev arrived in Belarus on Lukashenka’s invitation on April 19, 2010.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of Kyrgyzstan has twice requested to extradite ex-president to Kyrgyzstan, but the request was not satisfied.
The head of Kyrgyz State Security Service Keneshbek Dushabayev said on October 17, 2011, Kurmanbek Bakiyev was given the status of political refugee in Belarus. However, Belarus’ interior ministry does not reveal the status of
Kyrgyzstan overthrown president.
The presence of Janysh Bakiyev in Minsk wasn’t also confirmed.
