A British employee of Kyrgyzstan’s biggest gold mine, detained by police after comparing a national dish to a horse penis, was told on Monday to leave the country within 24 hours for working without an official permit. Michael Mcfeat posted a comment on Facebook saying that his Kyrgyz colleagues were queuing for their “special delicacy, the horse’s penis” at New Year celebrations, sparking a brief strike at the Kumtor mine as well as calls for criminal prosecution. The dish in question, chuchuk, is a sausage made from horse meat and intestines.
