Niyazov has come up with some unique new accusations of his top government officials (he had to, since he sacks them so often, and the old accusations were getting boring). He accused the recently retired prosecutor of stealing buckets:
...she apparently appropriated their assets, acquiring dozens of houses, shops and cafes across the country, over 20 cars, thousands of sheep and, for reasons still unexplained, 30,500 buckets.Excellent question.
"I am astonished at your greed," Niazov said to Atajanova, in remarks shown on Turkmen TV. "You took 30,500 buckets - why?Â"
