Sharof Rashidov district khokim’s assistant in the “Oktosh ota” mahalla said that he would give $1,000 of the money he receives from a businessman to the first deputy khokim of the district.

As it turned out, the deputy khokim told the citizens that the construction of 10 greenhouses under construction by the business entity as a supplier had not been completed, and he would help to transfer the money for them in the amount of 330 million soums to the LLC account managed by the entrepreneur.

In connection with the situation, a criminal case was initiated under relevant Articles of the Criminal Code.
