Trial of ex-mayor of Bishkek Albek Ibraimov begins

Court received the criminal case against the ex-mayor of Bishkek, Albek Ibraimov. His lawyer Sergey Slesarev told 24.kg news agency.

According to him, the materials were sent to the Oktyabrsky District Court. The first hearing is scheduled for January 15.

«It is completely incomprehensible why the territoriality principle has been violated. The case must be considered by the Pervomaisky District Court,» said Sergey Slesarev.

He also added that the charge brought against Albek Ibraimov was completely unreasonable, in fact there was actually no evidence base. The investigation was conducted with violations.

Albek Ibraimov was detained on the fact of appropriation and embezzlement of the property of Dastan TNC by purchasing special items at an overstated price. He was charged with corruption.

In addition, according to investigators, the former mayor organized a criminal scheme with other officials of the mayor’s office on the illegal withdrawal of municipal land located in the southern zone of the capital. Albek Ibraimov is also accused of corruption, revealed by the investigation, during the construction of a school in Kalys-Ordo residential area in Bishkek. Another person involved in the same fact is another ex-mayor of the capital, Kubanychbek Kulmatov.

Tomorrow, the court will begin consideration of the case, which combines the episodes of embezzlement in TNC Dastan and the facts of corruption in the allocation of municipal land for the use by individuals and legal entities.
