AKIPRESS.COM - The Parliament of Kyrgyzstan today passed the resolution on stripping Almazbek Atambayev of ex-president status.

103 MPs voted for ex-president status stripping, 6 voted against. MP Anvar Artykov, Alfiya Samigullina, Karamat Orozova, Asel Koduranova, Muradaly Mademinov and Irina Karamushkina voted against.

On June 20, Parliament of Kyrgyzstan adopted a resolution on bringing charges against ex-President Almazbek Atambayev to strip him of his status of ex-President. Atambayev was accused of "illegal freeing of crime boss Aziz Batukayev from prison, concealment of income, illegal land purchase, corruption in the modernization of the Bishkek power plant and the illegal supply of coal to the power plant, suppressing and persecution of opponents." General Prosecutor's office said there are elements of crime in 5 accusations except from the last one (suppressing and persecution of opponents).

Atambayev slammed the parliament and said accusations against him are "completely absurd, have no legal ground and are based on rumors."
