GOVERNMENT OF ARMENIA GRANTS ROBERT KOCHARYAN AN OFFICE IN THE CENTER OF YEREVAN
The Government of Armenia has decided to grant Robert Kocharyan an
office in the center of Yerevan.
The head of the State Property Management Department of the Government
of Armenia Karine Kirakossyan says that the Government has allocated
money for renting an area of 374.1 sq m in the building belonging to
Erebuni Plaza company at 26/1 Vazgen Sargsyan Street (near Republic
Square) for 10 years.
The annual rent is 2,000,000 AMD ($6,500). Kirakossyan says that
17,600,000 AMD ($58,000) will be allocated for equipment and furniture.
This decision amends the May 22 decision. To remind, the law on the
security and financing of the President of Armenia stipulates that
the ex president, if he likes, should be provided with an office.
Earlier, the Government decided to grant Kocharyan a lifelong pension
equivalent to 80% of the salary of the acting president (400,000 AMD).
