COURT CONVICTS KYRGYZ EX-PM OF GRAFT IN SECOND CASE

On 9 June, Rferl reported that a court has found former Prime Minister Sapar Isakov guilty of misusing state funds allocated for the renovation of Bishkek’s National History Museum and a hippodrome in the northern town of Cholpon-Ata while in office and sentenced him to serve 18 years in prison.  High-profile corruption trials have implicated several former top Kyrgyz officials who allegedly are close associates of former President Almazbek Atambaev, who is currently on trial after being arrested in August.
