Member of the Parliament Dastan Bekeshev has sharply criticized words of the First Vice Prime Minister about possible deprivation of public services in case a citizen fails to deliver his or her biometrics.
Collection of biometric data must not be involuntary, the MP stressed.
“What's going on today? Teachers make students' parents to submit their biometric data and if they fail, teachers say their children will now face difficulties while learning. The leaderships of medical centers oblige their doctors to submit the biometric data, while threatening to fire them,” he said.
“The First Vice Prime Minister said if people do not submit the biometric data, they will be deprived of pensions, benefits and other public services. Who is he to say that? We have the law, which is above any words of the First Vice Prime Minister. I do not understand why the General Prosecutor's Office is idle? It was an illegal statement,” Bekeshev added.
