Investigators insist on the version according to which Kucharbayev knew in 2017 that no commissioning work had been carried out at the erected treatment facilities in the city of Kumeratu, which means that "the facility was not prepared for operation and provision of services". Nevertheless, the official signed an act on the completed construction under the state contract with the contractor. The amount of the agreement was over RUB 95 million.
As a result, the treatment facilities were not put into operation, moreover, to this day, according to the UK, they are actually not suitable for use.
At present, Kucharbayev has been detained. Investigative actions are being conducted with him and the issue of choosing a preventive measure against him is being decided. The UK will continue to establish the circumstances of the crime and the persons involved.
Earlier, it was reported that searches were carried out at Kucharbayev's house.
