Turkmen leader sacks key aide amid graft charges


ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan: Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov has sacked his administration chief, complaining of corruption and mismanagement, state television said Saturday. Berdymukhamedov indicated “a weakening of discipline in the trade sector, the identification of cases of bribery among managers… a lack of attention to training and non-compliance with instructions provided” as justifications for sacking Palvan Taganov, state media said. He had served in the post for more than two years.
