As is known, the message was false, Nursultan Nazarbayev did not die and did not even leave the presidency.But that day, some citizens have experienced many unpleasant moments.The situation was aggravated by the fact that no other sources of the death of the head of state did not report.

In such cases, the question arises - who could organize such a publication and why it became possible?

Kazakh President

position of the first president of the Republic of Kazakhstan is somewhat different from the situation of persons occupying the same position in other states.

Nursultan Nazarbayev became president in 1990, when Kazakhstan was still a republic of the USSR.After the collapse of the Soviet Union, he was head of state.

Constitution enshrined the special situation of the republic's first president.One p
erson can not hold the presidency for more than two consecutive terms, but the first president of this restriction does not apply.His powers were defined separate constitutional law.

In addition, in the Republic of Kazakhstan does not flaunt personal life of the president.In fact, it is a state secret, as well as the health of the head of state.And that is surrounded by mystery, always becomes the subject of gossip and rumors, especially if any of the information leak still occurs.For example, in 2011 caused a wave of rumors Nazarbayev visit to the clinic at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (Germany).

bad joke

As for the scandalous reports about the death of the President of Kazakhstan in 2012, citizens were too shocked to pay attention to his date.Meanwhile, the date was as follows: April 1, 2013.Sad news turned out someone's "April Fool's joke!"

Who is decided so cruel joke, and remains a mystery.The media was not informed whether the police managed to track down the man who so cruelly and occurred to a poor joke, and what punishment he suffered.

In 2014 the Republic of Kazakhstan adopted a new Criminal Code, which provides for a penalty of imprisonment up to 12 years for spreading rumors.Speaking about the reasons for the appearance of such an article, First Deputy Prosecutor General of Kazakhstan did not mention the scandalous statement.He referred to the panic caused by the SMS-functionality of the bankruptcy of several banks, rumors of a dam in Taraz.But we can not exclude that the "April Fool's joke" also played a role.
