In his testimony during the preliminary investigation, Alakbar Heydarov, former first deputy head of the Kazakh district excusive authority said that he was taken to the deputy head of the MSN Anti-Terrorist Center, Ilgar Aliyev.  


“Ilgar Aliyev told me that minister Eldar Mahmudov was informed that I had been summoned here. He said that I was selling land on a fake order. I objected rejecting all the accusations. In response, he reminded me that I have a son. Ilgar Aliyev said that weapons or drugs could be found in my son's car so I need to think about it,” said Heydarov.


The victim continued: “Then Ilgar Aliyev demanded 500,000 manats from me. I said that I don’t have that amount of money. Then Ilgar Aliyev wrote 300,000 manats on paper, saying that this is the last figure, and demanded to bring this money the next day. During the conversation, Aliyev said that most of the money will be transferred to the minister and department heads, and he will receive only a small amount left. I again said that I cannot find this money in one day and asked him to give me time. Then Ilgar Aliyev demanded to bring the money in a week, and instructed me not to tell anyone about this. I agreed with him.” 


According to the victim, he borrowed money from his friends and gave Ilgar Aliyev a week later.
