SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN: TRANSFER OF THREE DETAINEES 
 
REF: STATE 194431 
 
Classified By: Pol-Econ Chief Deborah Mennuti, reasons 1.4 (B) 
and (D). 
 
1. (S) On December 16, three Kazakhstani detainees were 
transfered to the custody of Kazakhstan.  Poloff and Embassy 
Astana DAO officer met with Ualikhan Saginkhanov of the MFA's 
Consular Department at the Almaty international airport to 
facilitate the transfer.  Five individuals who declined to 
introduce themselves, likely security officials, accompanied 
Saginkhanov. 
 
2. (S) One member of the Kazakhstani delegation filmed the 
detainees leaving the aircraft.  After the transfer, the 
Kazakhstani authorities escorted the detainees to an airport 
terminal where the detainees' parents were waiting.  Upon 
receiving a positive identification from the parents, 
Saginkhanov called Poloff (who remained at the airplane) and 
the aircraft was released.
