During the visit, the head of the special services got acquainted with the conditions of detention of Atambayev and his state of health.

«Almazbek Atambayev noted that he had no complaints about the conditions of detention and the actions of the prison staff, except for the state of his health. The Chairman of the State Committee for National Security instructed the relevant services to conduct a thorough examination of the former president.
