He leased rooms at Kyz-Zhibek night club in East Kazakhstan Oblast and set up illegal storage and sales of alcohol products. 868 bottles of alcohol products and six beer barrels totally worth more than one million tenge ($6756) were seized from the crime site. These alcohol products were destroyed in accordance with the court's ruling,” Murat Zhumanbay said about one of the cases.

The facility was located in a private house in Kok-Ozek village of Karasay region in Almaty Oblast. The owner of the illegal facility was given a suspended 3-year prison term.
