A “doubtful” investigation
The Media-expert and Elena Skochilo the head of the journalistic department of the American University in Central Asia doubted the quality of the “El-Pikir” investigation. Researchers do not state in the report who paid and ordered this investigation, do not state experts’ names whose views were used in this report, she said in the Interview with Kloop.kg.
“El=Pikir” does not state a copywrite of the photo materials (with children’s photos) and include copy-past material from other sites ( phrases are easy to google). The cover page has a “ Bishkek 2011”, for an unknown reason” – she said.
