The former wife of Kapar Kurmanaliev, who led Kyrgyzstan’s Ministry of Natural Resources and the State Agency of Geology and Mineral Resources. Kurmanaliev had oversight over all the mining licenses awarded in Kyrgyzstan — a position he was accused of abusing.

After a 2010 uprising that ousted the Kyrgyz government from power, Kurmanaliev escaped the country. He was then placed on an Interpol wanted list and charged with illegally issuing licenses to private mining companies. Although he never returned to Kyrgyzstan, he was convicted in absentia in 2014 and sentenced to 12 years in prison. He is now living in Latvia.

He strongly denies any corruption or misconduct, and told OCCRP that he had stopped living with his wife in 2005 and her bank account had nothing to do with him.
