The
Ata-Meken party said Monday, Aug. 13, they would seek to pass a no-confidence
motion in parliament against Omurbek Babanov, possibly fueling political
instability in the turbulent Central Asian nation.

Party deputy
Zhoomart Saparbayev said a company that secured a building contract at
the country’s main airport imported the horse, valued at between
$500,000 and $1.5 million, without paying import duties. The party says
it has learned the horse now belongs to Babanov.

The airport hosts a U.S. military base serving as a key hub for operations in Afghanistan.
