The Parliament, after the publication of scandalous facts with the participation of relatives of the Prime Minister Mukhammedkaly Abylgaziev, decided to create a deputy commission to study the activities of KT Mobile. At the first meeting, MegaCom CEO Akylbek Zhamangulov told about threats from Imankadyr Rysaliev.

Head of Secretariat of Open Government Imankadyr Rysaliev said to 24.kg news agency that the statements of Akylbek Zhamangulov were slander. Government representatives called all accusations against the Prime Minister attempts by some opponents to discredit him. After the hype, the head of the Cabinet of Ministers spoke for resignation of his brother-in-law Imankadyr Rysaliev. Only after that the relative of the prime minister resigned.
