Atambaev broke the silence
Former president of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambaev broke the silence and made a political statement, 24.kg reports. “Yesterday’s decision on arrest of Sapar Isakov, former prime minister of Kyrgyz Republic, deputy chairman of SDPK (Social Democrat Party of Kyrgyzstan), and Kubanychbek Kulmatov, former chairman of State Customs Service and member of political council of our party, is not an anti corruption fight. Contrary to reason, those who distinguished themselves in anti corruption fight were arrested on a charge of corruption. Sapar Isakov’s government provided budget surplus of 5 billion soms within 4 months of this year. Such rate was achieved for the first time in Kyrgyzstan’s history,” the statement says. “The decision on arrest of state figures is a revenge from friends and protectors of well-known “Raim-million”, after dismissal of whom sharp increase of customs fees and positive changes became possible,” Atambaev said. Atambaev also called baseless and politically motivated the criminal prosecution of other active members of SDPK, including ex-mayor of Jalal Abad Salaidin Avazov and Osmonbek Artykbaev, member of Jogorku Kenesh (parliament). According to Atambaev, not Sapar Isakov must be brought to responsibility but those who are guilty for the accident at the older part of Central heating and power plant (TETS) and for that residents of Bishkek froze then. “Such helpful friends as current director of AKS (Anti-corruption service) push president Sooronbay Jeenbekov to a dangerous path. I have warned him about it before. Sooner or later the people of Kyrgyzstan will learn the real truth about the reasons of opening the above criminal cases and it will appraise all participants of this process”, Atambaev said in his statement.
The ruling team of Kyrgyzstan changed but the system of government remained unchanged! A new ruling elite, as well as the previous one, mastered the judicial system, prosecution, and other security authorities. Using its authorities, it gradually alienates inappropriate figures and political forces from society and political arena. Atambaev is a weak politician and he did not deserve the presidency. However, there is no doubt that the mechanism of elimination and liquidation will soon turn any newly elected ruling team into egoistic despots and corrupt officials who abuse the power like the previous ones. Some parts of this mechanism, well-known criminal figures such as Raim Matraimov (Raim-million), Suyun Omurzakov remain unpunished only because they can agree with every new ruling elite. This is all because the system of government remains unchanged no matter how many times the power changes. All ruling circles, both old and new ones, represent the same political doctrine and follow uniform rules – capitalistic principles of government based on unbelief. Therefore, there is no hope for any of these ruling teams…
