Deputy Mirgul Temirbaeva has proposed imposing fines for fundraising in schools. The corresponding bill has been published on the Jogorku Kenesh website for discussion.
In the explanatory note to this draft law, it is stated that it was developed in accordance with the president's decree aimed at ensuring the state guarantees the rights of children to receive free school education.
This decree prohibits illegal fundraising and the establishment of public funds at schools.
Its goal is to ensure the right to free school education and prevent illegal fundraising, including through the creation of public funds at schools.
Under this draft law, it is proposed to establish a norm according to which illegal fundraising in state educational institutions will result in fines for individuals in the amount of 75 calculation indicators, which is KGS 7,500 ($84).
The same action, carried out by creating public funds at schools, will be punishable by a fine for individuals in the amount of 100 calculation indicators, which is equal to KGS 10,000 ($112), and for legal entities - 280 calculation indicators, which is KGS 28,000 ($315).
In early September, the State Committee for National Security of Kyrgyzstan reported the detention of four directors of different schools in Bishkek, who are suspected of illegal fundraising.
