The Prosecutor General’s Office has identified a stable corruption scheme for writing off electricity debts. This was reported on December 6 in the press service of the supervisory authority.
According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, in the period 2016-2020, the distribution companies Oshelektro, Vostokelectro, Severelectro and Jalalabatelektro, together with officials of the competent authorities, were engaged in illegal debt write-offs.
The damage caused to the state by the supervisory authority is estimated at more than 897 million soms.
“[The distribution companies] did not take appropriate measures to collect debts from subscribers in court and the debts were not paid off. In other cases, lawsuits were filed, but debts were unjustifiably written off on the basis of illegal orders of bailiffs on non-repayment of debt. In addition, these officials deliberately added subscribers to the list of debtors who did not identify themselves, did not live at these addresses or did not have this address at all in corruption interests, and also wrote off debts on the grounds that they could not be recovered,” reported in the supervisory authority.
