Leonid Mayevsky tells on what he will spend returned $ 1 million

Leonid Mayevsky told the newspaper Kommersant on what he will spend $ 1 million returned to him from the confiscated property of Omurbek Tekebayev.

«I am not authorized to comment on the verdict itself. This is court’s decision. I plan to spend the money returned to charity in Kyrgyzstan, so that there were no questions,» he said.

Leonid Mayevsky confirmed that $ 1 million must be returned to him due to the confiscation of property of Omurbek Tekebayev. «There was concrete evidence,» he added.

According to the businessman, the process is commercial and has no relation to politics. «I officially declare that I didn’t communicate with any Kyrgyz politicians,» the businessman said.

According to GKNB, the reason for initiating the criminal case was a statement by Russian businessman Leonid Mayevsky that allegedly in 2010 he handed over $ 1 million to the leader of Ata Meken for a positive resolution of the issue with the sale of the mobile operator MegaCom, which the interim government nationalized. In this transaction, Duishenkul Chotonov acted as an intermediary.

The leader of the Ata Meken party, deputy Omurbek Tekebayev and former minister of emergency situations Duishenkul Chotonov was sentenced to 8 years imprisonment with confiscation of property.
