New Blatant Evidence About The Embezzlement Of Surik Khachatryan


[ Part 2.2: “Attached Text” ]

July 29 2013

Today, Samvel Harutyunyan, the former Mayor of Goris for the period
of 1992-94, co-chair of the regional defense committee, presented
new amazing facts about the former governor of Syunik Marz Surik
Khachatryan and embezzlement in connection with his relatives. “One
and a half years ago, the National Assembly passed a law on medical
insurance. Surik Khachatryan, seeing the taste of money, immediately
starts working, and abusing his official position documents 4 people as
if agents and compels almost all state employees of the marz to insure
their health. The value of each transaction is 70 thousand drams. They
compel 3000 people, and it is a huge amount of money. And here are all
4 of them.  Surik Khachatryan has been for years, and even today is
the director of “Syunik” Charitable Foundation, one of the 4 agents is
Mkhitar Mezhlumyan, the son of the Executive Director of the Foundation
Levon Mezhlumyan. The 2nd agent is Razmig Tunyan, his former driver,
who in recent years has been working in one of Surik Khachatryan’s
gas filling stations, his son is documented. The 3rd agent is the son
of his former girlfriend Saida Adunts, the 4th is the son of Goris
Police Chief Armen Hovhannisyan. 3000 deals are conducted, in which
each transaction, i.e. 22% of every 70 thousand drams, according to the
law, was going to the agent as revenue. 3000 multiplied by 22 per cent
makes 46 million drams. They receive approximately 110 thousand dollars
of revenue from these transactions.” Samvel Harutyunyan assured that,
naturally, Surik Khachatryan could not miss his lion’s share from
those transactions, as in all-and-all transactions. 

He is telling about another transaction and embezzlement case in
Goris with participation of Surik Khachatryan. “Years ago, in 1991,
the 4th new high school building was built in Goris. It was left
unfinished. Personally, I did my best to keep the construction going
and the school students have the opportunity to study in a comfortable
new school building. A few years ago, the school building, by direct
order of Surik Khachatryan, is considered unclaimed property. For
unknown reasons, it was in the balance of the Ministry of Science and
Education, but considered unclaimed property, and is transferred to
Goris municipality, and the municipality, no more, no less, shortly
after, divides it into 4 parts, each with 224 square meters, and
sells it to 4 people. The first part is sold to Loretta Barsegyan,
Surik Khachatryan’s wife for 1 million 224 thousand drams, i.e. a
total of 3000 dollars. The other 3 parts are sold for the same price,
to the point the 2nd part was sold to Vardan Barseghyan, Surik
Khachatryan’s brother-in-law, the president of “Tigran and Trdat”
LTD, the 3rd part was sold to Sasun Khachatryan, Surik Khachatryan’s
cousin, director of Tatev hydro electro station enterprise systems,
and the 4th part is sold to Kamo Balasanyan, a resident of Goris.” 

According to Samvel Harutyunyan, shortly after, the first 3 parts
are sold to Harutyun Davtyan, a resident of Goris, whose brothers
are businessmen in RF. Each part was sold for 9 million drams. “It
is clear that it is impossible to imagine that Kamo Balasanyan has
bought is for the same price, 1 million 224 thousand drams. It turns
out that semi-finished school building was sold and Surik Khachatryan
and his cronies benefited approximately 100 thousand dollars.”
