Deputies of the Parliament of Kyrgyzstan set up a commission to lift immunity of the ex-president Almazbek Atambayev. Deputy Iskhak Masaliev told 24.kg news agency.
According to him, the commission’s decision must be signed by two thirds of the parliament members and sent to the Prosecutor General’s Office.
«Actually, I do not understand why we are playing into the hands of Atambayev now? What for? It is unnecessary noise. Atambayev can be held responsible for his words and insults in a criminal or civil manner as an ordinary person. There are absolutely no obstacles for this,» Iskhak Masaliev explained.
Recall, several deputies criticized Almazbek Atambayev for his speech at a rally against corruption and demanded from the Prosecutor General’s Office to assess his actions.
