(U) TAJIK MINISTRY OF INTERIOR OFFICIALS EVICT RESIDENTS, TAKE OVER BUILDING: (Source: AMEMBASSY DUSHANBE 00643, 30 Apr 07) On April 26 Ministry of Interior officials forcefully evicted residents who illegally occupied a rundown 52-unit building in Dushanbe. When PolOff arrived on the scene, at least 30 police officers had surrounded the area, and one fire truck and an ambulance were poised and ready for emergencies. Women and children, blankets and carpets were scattered cross the area surrounding the building. Despite residents'' protests, officials removed all belongings from their apartments and loaded them along with the residents onto open-top trucks. According to a colonel who was in charge of the eviction, the government will relocate residents to their hometowns as indicated on their internal passports. Most residents originally came from the south, but some will be sent back to as far away as the Gorno-Badakhshan region. The residents were internally displaced persons who arrived in Dushanbe after the end of the civil war to find jobs.
