The ex-president of the Kyrgyz Republic is involved in the corruption scheme during the modernization of Bishkek’s Heating and Power Plant.

In addition, Aka Invest and Tekesay Zhashtary companies are affiliated with Almazbek Atambayev. The company became known thanks to the desire to buy MegaCom and invest $ 9 million in Safe City project.

On December 1, 2016, ex-Prosecutor General Aida Salyanova accused him of illegal coal supplies to the heating plant of the capital. According to her, the interests of Progress Company were promoted by Almazbek Atambayev himself.
