SYUNIK REGIONAL GOVERNOR TO PAY OFF HIS DEBT TO ME, SAYS SILVA HAMBARDZUMYAN
Entrepreneur Silva Hambardzumyan has informed local daily Haykakan
Jamanak (~SArmenian Times~T) that Syunik marzpet (regional governor)
Suren Khachatryan will transfer his debt of 102 million drams to her
account by Dec. 15.
Hambardzumyan noted, however, that she didn~Rt receive this news
from Khachatryan himself, but through intermediaries. They asked the
entrepreneur to inform them when the money is in her account so that
they may relay this information to the governor who reportedly will
then go and apologize to Hambardzumyan.
The entrepreneur didn~Rt reveal the names of these intermediaries,
promising, however, to make them public after Dec. 15, if she has
still not received the money owing to her.
Recall, meeting with reporters on Nov. 10, Hambardzumyan charged
that Khachatryan stole 102 million drams~R worth of equipment from
the Litchqvaz-Tey mine, which belonged to Hambardzumyan before the
license for her Sipan 1 gold mining company was revoked by authorities.
Following the accusations, Khachatryan publicly threatened to take
Hambarzumyan to court, saying that he purchased the equipment.
Then, on Nov. 14, Hambardzumyan asserted that she was attacked by
the marzpet as she was leaving a Yerevan hotel.
