of the Homeland and Honor party and a member of the opposition bloc
Armenian National Congress, noted that the party intends to demand the
“attachment of the funds stolen from the Armenian people and amassed
at European banks” and a ban on his and his family members’ entry to
“Since fish begins to stink at the head, we will begin with the head
and clear this country,” Mr Margaryan said. Some persons representing
the current criminal and oligarchic system will be on the black list
“Our aim is to expose the unlawful acts and show the public that
the fortunes were built up through plunder, not due to hard labor,”
Mr Margaryan said.
