Yelge Qaitaru Foundation: “Kazakhtelecom” JSC Kuanyshbek Yesekeyev involved in the offences committed

The Public Fund “Elge Qaitaru” received an Act of doc­u­men­tary ver­i­fi­ca­tion of the Corporate Business Division – a branch of “Kazakhtelecom” JSC. Period to be ver­i­fied: 01.01.2018 – 01.10.2021, time of ver­i­fi­ca­tion: 23.08.2021 – 22.11.2021 It fol­lows from this act that the spec­i­fied branch of “Kazakhtelecom” JSC (here­inafter referred to as the Branch) allowed numer­ous resales of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vices to third par­ties by the com­pa­nies “Amanat Service Solutions” LLP, “A.R.Group Company” LLP, “Almastor” LLP, “Adal Telecom” LLP, “Kazteleport” LLP. In addi­tion, the Branch allowed the pro­vi­sion of ser­vices to non-exis­tent legal entities.

At the same time, the Branch pro­vid­ed these com­pa­nies with unrea­son­ably high dis­counts on telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vices (40–80%). The revealed facts of resale of ser­vices are a direct vio­la­tion of the require­ments of a num­ber of inter­nal reg­u­la­tions of” Kazakhtelecom” JSC. As a result of these vio­la­tions, the inter­ests of “Kazakhtelecom” JSC were dam­aged in the form of lost prof­its in the amount of 7,046,434,500 (sev­en bil­lion forty-six mil­lion four hun­dred thir­ty-four thou­sand five hun­dred) tenge.

We ask you to inform us about the mea­sures tak­en to elim­i­nate these vio­la­tions, elim­i­nate the prac­tice of reselling telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vices and who is direct­ly held account­able by the heads of “Kazakhtelecom” JSC. We are con­fi­dent that the iden­ti­fied embez­zle­ment is impos­si­ble with­out the affil­i­a­tion of the list­ed orga­ni­za­tions with the man­age­ment and share­hold­ers of Kazakhtelecom JSC. We also ask you to inform us about the ter­mi­na­tion of con­tracts with com­pa­nies and com­pen­sa­tion for the dam­age caused.

Taking into account the monop­oly posi­tion of “Kazakhtelecom” JSC in the pro­vi­sion of ser­vices to indi­vid­u­als and legal enti­ties of the coun­try, we ask you to inform us about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of reduc­ing tar­iffs as a result of elim­i­nat­ing vio­la­tions, since the Company exist­ed per­fect­ly with­out these revenues.

A sep­a­rate ques­tion is why Kuanyshbek Yesekeyev (who is con­sid­ered an affil­i­ate of Karim Masimov) con­tin­ues to lead the activ­i­ties of Kazakhtelecom JSC?

Is he involved in the offences com­mit­ted?

If not, why did he allow dam­age to the inter­ests of the com­pa­ny for a long period?
