Speaking to reporters in Kulob yesterday, the Kulob health department head Safarali Rajabov denied rumors that local medical workers will receive a part of their wages in Roghun shares as “unfounded.”


These rumor are not true,” state he. “We have held a meeting and all agreed to buy shares in Roghun after receiving wages.  Medical workers will receive their wages and after they will decide whether to buy shares or not.  However, all medical workers of Kulob voted for spending a part of their monthly wages for buying Roghun shares.”


In the meantime, several local medical workers, who wanted to remain anonymous, told Asia-Plus that account departments would pay them a part of monthly wages in Roghun shares.  “We will sign in payrolls for full wages, while we will be given one share in Roghun for 100 somoni,” they said.


Meanwhile, the head of the branch of the National Bank of Tajikistan (NBT), Abdukarim Nematov, told Asia-Plus Monday afternoon that 14,969,650 somoni worth of shares in Roghun have been sold in Khatlon’s Kulob zone by January 18.
