Sooronbai Jeenbekov voices reason for ineffective fight against corruption

Today, the Security Council holds a meeting in the State Residence Ala-Archa 1. This is the first meeting chaired by the new president of the country. Members of the Security Council are considering the issue «On actual measures to combat corruption in judicial, law enforcement and supervisory bodies of the Kyrgyz Republic.»

Sooronbai Jeenbekov voiced the reason for the ineffective struggle against corruption. According to him, state bodies that fight against corruption are themselves corrupt, therefore they are not able to conduct effective work.

«The fight against corruption will not be limited to law enforcement agencies. We will work from the highest echelons of power to the last rural administration. The authorities and society must be cleared of corruption. I have enough political will and strength to do this,» said the President.
