Kyrgyz lawmakers are considering stricter regulation of international adoptions after officials have been accused of “selling” orphans as thousands of children languish in poorly funded state-run orphanages.
Kyrgyzstan has enacted a ban on casinos that supporters say will ease the negative effects of gambling on Kyrgyz society, but opponents argue will leave thousands unemployed and boost organized crime.
Kyrgyz voters go to the polls Sunday to elect a new president in what is seen as a landmark election in the region but what locals dismiss as not bringing real change to the country following last year's uprising.
"We can't leave them there as they will rot there — it's sin," Ms. Aitmatova says. "But it is also sin to sell them like goods."
"Here in Kyrgyzstan, people don't like to adopt unwell children," says lawmaker Shirin Aitmatova.
