At least 148 million soms have been transferred to a single deposit account from the fight against corruption.

At the beginning of the week, the Prosecutor General’s Office transferred to the account 39 million soms. The State Committee for National Security first transferred 95.9 million, and then other 13.3 million soms. Thus, 109.2 million soms were received from SCNS as a result of the fight against corruption.

«The very idea of ​​opening such an account is good. It is right. When there was a confiscation of resources, it was not clear where this money would go. But the account must be transparent for the society and journalists, so it is clear from whom the funds are received, within what criminal case and, possibly, from which business entities. We do not want the government agencies in the pursuit of sums to start making the life for the business a nightmare,» Sergei Ponomarev, the head of the Association of Markets, Trade and Service Enterprises, commented on the situation to 24.kg news agency.
