Has Anyone Seen The Turkmen President Lately?

The big news from Turkmenistan in the last few weeks has been that the country's mercurial president, Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov, has been absent from the news for large periods of time.

While officially on vacation, that has never stopped Turkmen state media from following Berdymukhammedov around in previous years.

But his absence from nightly Turkmen television newscasts and daily reports in state print media have some people seriously considering rumors that Berdymukhammedov is in poor health or possibly even dead.

And RFE/RL's Turkmen Service, known locally as Azatlyk, noted that Berdymukhammedov was wearing exactly the same suit and tie as he wore in a May 10 broadcast on state television, which is strange because he never wears the same suit -- or even the same clothes -- twice in his television appearances.

on edit:
Sounds like it's time for Acme Detective Agency to get going
Personally, it's likely he's dead or pretty close
But we'll see if he attends the Caspian Economic Forum, we'll know
