The State Security Minister of Kyrgyzstan, Feliks Kulov, yesterday issued an open letter to President Askar Akaev taking issue with the government’s decision to privatize state-owned electricity-generating, gas, telephone, and air transport companies. The letter also complained of an alleged lack of "social justice" in the government’s privatization program overall. Kulov called for the formation of an interdepartmental commission, notably including the State Security Ministry, to revise the privatization program. (Vechernii Bishkek cited by Interfax, June 2)
