In a report released at a news conference in Dushanbe, the Accounts Chamber head Qarakhon Chillazoda revealed on January 30 that nearly 42 million somoni (TJS) have been misappropriated during the implementation of the Affordable Housing Project.

An inspection conducted by auditors of the Accounts Chamber at the State Unitary Enterprise (SUE) Sokhtomoni Manzili Dastras (Affordable Housing Construction).revealed 41.947 million somoni worth of damage, he said, noting some 59 percent of the damage has been reimbursed.

The Accoutnts Chamber has submitted all materials to the Prosecutor General's Office and I hope that the damage will be fully reimbursed this year, Chillazoda added.

Recall, a residential complex called Affordable Dwelling was commissioned in the Tajik capital on December 27. The complex consists of one 20 story, seven 16 story and two 18 story apartment buildings.

Ten construction companies, namely Nouri Shams, Iqlimi Sof, Saimo, Farzin 7, Agrotekhstroy, Hoji Yoqub and some others, participated in construction of this residential complex.

The Affordable Housing project was launched in Dushanbe in 2013 and was intended to begin settling needy people into new homes by September 2015. Construction work was serially delayed, however, creating much discontent among the homebuyers that had already put down deposits.

Dushanbe Mayor Rustam Emomali in April 2018 signed a decree on the establishment of the Supervisory Board at the State Unitary Enterprise (SUE) Sokhtomoni Manzili Dastras (Affordable Housing Construction).

The Supervisory Board has controlled protection of consumers' rights and timely completion of construction projects in Dushanbe. It has been authorized to control the targeted use of funds allocated for the Affordable Housing Project and coordinate activities of all legal entities involved in implementation of this project.
