Madina Ablyazova's appeal to the citizens of Kazakhstan
© 05.06.2013

Honourable Citizens of Kazakhstan!

I ask you for your help in determining the whereabouts of my mother, Alma Shalabayeva, and my six-year-old sister, Alua, who were taken from Italy on a chartered plane by the special services of Kazakhstan on 31 May, 2013.

Madina Ablyazova, source: From what I know, the plane landed in Astana last night. Witnesses at the airport saw my mum and sister being pushed into a black car and then taken away. On board the plane were representatives of the embassies of Kazakhstan and Italy and officers of the special services.

We all know, for what purpose and on whose command my loved ones were kidnapped, but, apart from the main ‘client’, the operation involved dozens, if not hundreds of people.
I appeal to these people: officers, executors, and employees of the embassy, as well as to ordinary witnesses. I am sure you have your own families. Please put yourselves in my place. I am not asking for much – I want to know if my mother and sister are alive and healthy, and whether they are going through the same nightmare as my father, on the orders of the same person – Nazarbayev.

It is scary to think what my sister felt, when armed police officers, before her very eyes, took her mother, and then her, to a trial of the evil dictator. The only things that can save them now are media hype and publicity.THE REGIME WANTS THEM TO BE DECLARED MISSING!

No matter what the accusations against them are, I know very well that my mother is not guilty of anything, and certainly not my sister, Alua. I need all available information about where they are and how they feel. Please think of your own children and families, and help me!
