Kyrgyzstan's Authorities Pursue Akaev's Son-In-Law

19 April 2005 -- Kyrgyzstan's authorities have started a corrupt business activities criminal case against the son-in-law of ousted President Askar Akaev. A National Security Service spokesman said today that the case involves Adil Toigonbaev, Akaev's son-in-law, and suspected illegal business machinations.

Toigonbaev's business activities were a target for the stone-throwing protestors who last month burst into Akaev's office, forcing the family to flee the country. His chain of supermarkets was among the first businesses hit by a wave of looting that subsequently swept the capital Bishkek.

The country's interim President Kurmanbek Bakiev announced today a commission to list all the family's property and freeze trading in such properties.
