Deputy demands to deprive Almazbek Atambayev the status of ex-president

Deputy proposes to deprive Almazbek Atambayev the status of ex-president. Member of the commission to investigate the causes of the breakdown at Bishkek Heating and Power Plant, which took place on January 26, 2018, deputy from Onuguu-Progress faction Iskhak Masaliev, said during the discussion of the findings of the commission.

According to him, Atambayev must be also brought to political liability, as in 2011, Almazbek Atambayev was the prime minister and began negotiations with the Chinese side on signing the contract with TBEA. «Other prime ministers, including Sapar Isakov, simply continued this policy. I think that Almazbek Atambayev also must bear responsibility,» said Iskhak Masaliev.

While the deputy commission was working, the State Committee for National Security investigated the criminal case on corruption in the implementation of the project «Modernization of Bishkek HPP.» Seven former top managers of the energy industry were arrested. All of them were officially charged with corruption.
