SRC Chairman an oligarch?

SRC Chairman an oligarch?

In parallel with his numerous businesses, one of the `leading
Armenian’ oligarchs – Gagik Khachatrian also does greenhouse business.
`Zhamanak’ newspaper reports that Gagik Khachatrian, who is the
Chairman of Armenia’s State Revenue Committee (SRC), has owned
greenhouses of a total area of 8-9 thousand square meters in Yeghvard
and Nor Geghi communities for 7-8 years already. Tomatoes, cucumbers
and peppers are grown in his greenhouses.

By the way, the `non-oligarch’ farmers owning greenhouses have
constantly complained about cheap vegetables imported from Turkey. The
customs authorities of SRC headed by the same Gagik Khachatrian clear
the imported vegetables at `water price’ or do not clear them at all.
As a result, cheap and low-quality vegetables from Turkey flood the
Armenian market, leaving no room for domestic producers.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
