Deputies to check legality of mass felling of trees in Bishkek

Parliamentary working group will be formed to study the legality of mass felling of trees in Bishkek. The decision was made today at a meeting of the Committee on Agrarian Policy, Water Resources, Ecology and Regional Development.

It was noted that the members of another specialized committee — transport, communications and construction — will be involved in the work.

The group is assigned to work for two months — July and August, in September the deputies will return to this issue. In case of detected violations, materials will be sent to law enforcement agencies.

Recall, a mass felling of trees takes place in Bishkek. The City Hall explains these actions by the need to expand roads, replace irrigation networks, promising to plant new trees and bushes.
