Trial of a high-profile criminal case on modernization of the capital’s heating and power plant completed the day before in the Sverdlovsky District Court of Bishkek.

The former Energy Minister of Kyrgyzstan Osmonbek Artykbaev was sentenced to a fine of 5 million soms, and the former Minister of Finance Olga Lavrova — to a fine of 3 million soms.

Recall, prosecutors asked the court to sentence the former Minister of Energy to a fine of 5 million soms. At the same time, the state prosecution asked to take into account that Osmonbek Artykbaev had partially compensated for the damage.
