YEREVAN, MARCH 7, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan referred to Meghri Free-trade-zone, noting that some unusual facts have been recorded in terms of obtaining lands near it.
“We had preliminary information that some high level official, being informed in-advance that a free-trade-zone will be established there, obtained the surrounding lands at ridiculously low prices. And when I visited Meghri FTZ last year, I recorded that, in fact, there are no state-owned lands there”, ARMENPRESS reports the PM said, inquiring from Chief of Prime Minister's Staff Eduard Aghajanyan about that case.
Aghjajanyan noted that a criminal case is initiated in the sidelines of that case. According to the Chief of Prime Minister's Staff , the police inform that the mentioned land is undoubtedly subject to be refunded to the state balance. “According to our colleagues, it will take 2-3 months”, he said.
