Nursultan Nazarbayev’s grandson seeks asylum in UK

Aisultan Nazarbayev, grandson of former Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev, is seeking asylum in the UK.

Aisultan is son of Dariga Nazarbayeva, the elder daughter of ex-president and his deceased son-in-law Rakhat Aliyev.

“I ask Great Britain to give me a political asylum, my last 5 years were terrible and people should know what really happened”, - he wrote in Facebook.

Aisultan claims that he was “injected with psychotropic drugs and sent to rot in prison in Orel near Moscow for 14 months” by his mother Dariga Nazarbayeva.

He also claims that he got out of the prison thanks to Alnur Musayev, former head of Kazakhstan’s National Security Committee, and Russian special service, which “brought dispute to the entire family”.
