Sooronbai Jeenbekov ready to refuse president’s immunity

«Amendments to the law on Guarantees of President’s Activities concern not only the ex-president Almazbek Atambayev, but also me,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov said at a press conference today.

He refuted the information that the bill on the deprivation of the immunity of the head of state was directed against Almazbek Atambayev.

«If it was against Almazbek Atambayev, then I would oppose it. But the deputies initiated the question of bringing this law in line with the Constitution. There are moments in the current law that contradict the Constitution. This bill concerns me too,» said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.

He noted that there were still controversial points around the draft law on bringing ex-presidents to criminal responsibility.

Recall, amendments to the law on Guarantees of the President’s Activities were adopted in the first reading.
