Kyrgyzstan's Prime Minister Omurbek Babanov announced Monday that he had fired every custom official, border guard, and police officer in his country's two international airports.

Babanov made the decision in order to “curb corruption at the airports,” according to the government’s press service.

All employees at the airports in the country's capital Bishkek and the southern city of Osh are to be fired in within 10 days, per his executive order.

Moreover, Babanov announced that any replacement employees would be fired within one month of employment if evidence of corruption persists.
