Parliament turns from legislative body into body spreading rumors

«The Parliament is transformed from a legislative body into a body that is spreading rumors,» President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev said today during the presentation of the state awards.

According to him, the people need peace and harmony. «Some external and internal forces do not like the stability that was established in the republic... After the April revolution, some politicians came to power, led looting, plundered the national property, and later concealed the traces of their crimes. We know all of this,» the head of state said.

He noted that the scandals in the Parliament have not stopped for several months: «The deputy commissions are being created again and again, they say, the crashed Boeing carried a cargo that belonged to Atambayev, he, allegedly, has property in Cyprus, large sums of money appeared on the accounts of Atambayev’s wife after 2011.»

"And this kind of rumors is spread from the tribune of Parliament! Parliament is transformed from a legislative body into an organ that spreads rumors. If the deputies want to find out the truth, they could, without making hysterics, fly to the same Hong Kong or Istanbul for two months. They have time to fly to Venice, Vienna and America, and there is no time to find out the truth. It can not be said that they do not have money for tickets — many of them are millionaires. But if necessary, I will buy tickets for them. If the deputies find my money in Cyprus, let them take it for themselves, "Almazbek Atambayev said.
