The State Committee for National Security of Kyrgyzstan announced the discovery of an underground mining farm in the house of the newly appointed head of the Cholpon-Ata Distribution Zone.
informs the publication Sputnik, citing the press service of the State Committee for National Security, a mining farm was discovered in the house of the new chief of the distribution zone. For a long time he worked in various positions at the Cholpon-Ata Distribution Zone, so it was not difficult for him to connect mining equipment bypassing the meter. The most interesting thing is that the suspect was appointed to the post of director of the power plant today, December 8th.
“At the place of residence of the suspect, the fact of theft of electricity in significant volumes was established, since the specified mining farm was connected bypassing the electric meter. While working in the energy system, despite the energy crisis in the country caused by the low water cycle, using his official position, he was engaged in the theft of electricity, thereby damaging the energy security of the Kyrgyz Republic, ”the press release says.
Now investigators are counting and assessing the amount of electricity stolen by the miner and the total damage to the state.
Earlier, Ukrainian law enforcement agencies discovered a large clandestine mining farm – equipment worth $ 220,000 was seized. And at the beginning of the month, Russian police discovered an underground mining farm that consumed electricity for 500,000 rubles a day.
