Deputy of the Parliament demands of the government to report on the election of new representatives of Kyrgyzstan in Centerra Gold. The leader of Onuguu-Progress faction Bakyt Torobaev said today at a meeting of Parliament.
Kyrgyzaltyn JSC announced a contest for representative of the Kyrgyz Republic in the foreign company on January 23, 2016. " The competition was given only 10 days, 4 days of which - day offs, how is it possible to apply documents for 6 days? Nevertheless, the results were given on February 2, but we don't know anything about it," Bakyt Torobaev said.
He expressed surprise that the competition was held quietly. "You know that now even a schoolboy speaks about Kumtor, any question we may touch on - politics, taxes, GDP - Kumtor appears everywhere. Therefore, these competitions should be conducted openly, transparently, otherwise there will be scandal again. It was necessary to show the entire process on-line, on order people to see who comes, the applicants, whether they have experience or not. After all, according to our information, they earn $15,000 per month, so it is necessary to find out whether they can protect the interests of Kyrgyzstan in the company," the leader of Onuguu-Progress said.
He recalled when during one of the discussions on Kumtor in the Parliament it was revealed that one of the representatives of Kyrgyzstan in Centerra is a citizen of Kazakhstan. "I remember the scandal, that man had to resign and leave, so, we repeat the mistakes?" Bakyt Torobaev said and suggested the Profile Committee of the Parliament to consider the matter, having invited the government and the representatives of Kyrgyzaltyn.
The Speaker Asylbek Zheenbekov assured that the Committee on Fuel, Energy Complex and Subsoil Use of the Parliament will be instructed.
