Former deputy governor of Nur-Sultan (then Astana) Kanat Sultanbekov, accused in the Astana LRT case, made a new statement, the national portal Adyrna reports citing ztb.kz.

Earlier, he worked as Deputy Mayor of Astana from October 2009 to December 2014, and $ 257 millions spent on the construction of the LRT disappeared in 2016 after the mayor's office transferred it to the Bank of Astana.

"Everyone knows that in 2015 KK Massimov, BA Sagintayev and AR Dzhaksybekov proposed an expensive LRT project for 2 countries. I wrote about this before. It seems that it is time to find out who stole $ 257.6 million LRT and how. "Dzhaksybekov and Issekeshev were the heads of the executive committee at that time. I understand that neither Antikor nor the second president's prosecutor's office have yet given priority to the clans," Sultanbekov said.

He further reminded that on October 8, 2018, President Tokayev instructed the Anti-Corruption Agency to intensify the investigation and pay attention to the heads of the capital's ex.com., who made and signed the decision.

Sultanbekov reported on the report of the Accounts Commission on December 30, 2016 by the Mayor of Astana AO Issekeshev and his deputy Khoroshun SM The $ 257.6 millions LRT was signed for non-construction purposes.

"The money was deposited in the Bank of Astana and disappeared without a trace. According to some sources, the bank actually belonged to Dariga Nazarbayeva through trustees," Sultanbekov wrote.

He further alleges that on January 24, 2020, investigator Shalenov.E divided the $ 257.6 million LRT embezzlement case (ERDR №197100121000066 case) into private proceedings and concealed the evidence from everyone.

"Furthermore, on March 6, 2020, the investigator failed to identify the suspects, dropped the case on the shelf in Anticor and interrupted the investigation. It is also necessary to interrogate Massimov KK, Sagintayeva BA, Dzhaksybekova AR, Issekesheva AO and Khoroshuna SM ", - said the former deputy governor.

Then Sultanbekov asked the president for permission.

"President Tokayev, allow me to interrogate these people for an objective and full investigation. I believe that the Anticor and the Prosecutor General's Office are trying to hang the guilt of influential people on me and other defendants in the case. We are waiting for their answer for the third year in a row." he concluded.
