President personally will take control of all complaints addressed to state authorities Bishkek, Feb.8, 2018 / Kabar /. President of Kyrgyzstan, Sooronbay Jeenbekov will take control of every important statement addressed to judicial, law enforcement and supervisory agencies. On his intentions to personally monitor complaints of citizens, the Head of State said today at a meeting of the Security Council.

"Over the past two years, the President of the country received more than 5,480 appeals for unlawful actions of law enforcement, supervisory and judicial officials, because they do not pay proper attention to personal reception of citizens. Citizens turn to you with their troubles - statements, their problems. But not all of you accept them. You were barricaded yourselves from people by high fences, checkpoints, guards and basically became inaccessible to the public. People are relying hopes on you and are looking for protection, and you yourself go with bodyguards. And how can you protect people?” the President said.

The Head of State also drew their attention of following strict rules of dress code, wearing official uniforms, which at the same time requires protection the honor of the uniform.

"People should clearly see that you are representatives of power. For example, why do I ask you to wear office uniform during working hours? A person in uniform feels responsible among people. He will not be able to create lawlessness in a public place and violate the law. If there is a service number on the car, it will not violate the rules of the road. Transparency allows everyone to see what a government official does and educate people in uniform, "Jeenbekov said.

Along with that, he instructed the meeting participants to be closer to the people, and also respond in a qualitative and timely manner to every appeal and every statement. The President stressed that only this way it is possible to raise the authority of law enforcement agencies and restore the people's confidence in state power.
