Ex Kyrgyz President denied accusations and blamed current president

Politics A- A A+

Ex-President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev said in a statement that the accusations brought by the parliament against him are "completely absurd, have no legal ground and are based on rumors."

Atambayev accused incumbent President Sooronbai Jeenbekov of "wishing to eliminate his political opponent."

"Sooronbai Jeenbekov could not find other ways to shut me up other than to prosecute me on false charges," Atambayev said adding that "dirty methods" are used to achieve that goal.

Atambayev called the Jeenbekovs brothers "toadies turned enemies and critics."

"I am pure before God and my people, the law and my conscience! Everything that I've done these year I tried to make for my people," he added.

He said he is not going to "play the miserable role of the man falsely charged by the Jeenbekovs."
