DAVIT HARUTYUNIAN: GLOBAL GOLD MINING DOES NOT INDICATE DEFINITELY WHO DEMANDED BRIBE FROM THEM IN ARMENIA
May 09 2007
YEREVAN, MAY 9, NOYAN TAPAN. Statements of US company Global Gold
Mining to the effect that they were demanded to give a bribe in
Armenia resemble a political statement, the RA justice minister Davit
Harutyunian stated at the May 9 meeting with reporters. According
to him, this story was linked to the Armenian ministry of nature
protection, but no name was given by the US company.
In response to a reporter’s question that the company indicated the
RA minister of nature protection Vardan Aivazian as the person who
demanded a bribe, D. Harutyunian said: "If there had been a definite
statement that "this person has demanded a bribe for the given action",
I can confidently say that the prosecutor’s office would have attended
to this fact."
