Tajikistan seeks extradition of former PM Abdullojonov

The Prosecutor General’s Office of Tajikistan has submitted documents needed for the extradition of former Tajik Prime Minister Abdumalik Abdullojonov, news reports said on Saturday.

The 64-year-old, who has lived in the United States for the past 15 years, was detained in Ukraine at the request of Tajik authorities who accuse Abdullojonov of organizing the 1997 assassination attempt against President Emomali Rakhmon.
