ArmInfo. The Commission for the  Prevention of Corruption initiated proceedings against Healthcare  Minister Arsen Torosyan on the basis of a clear conflict of interest.

The proceedings are based on, according to which the  Ministry of Health signed agreements on the provision of services  with the MIBS company, the director of which is Arsen Torosyan's  wife, Vardanush Tevanyan. According to the source, after the  appointment of Torosyan as Minister in May 2018, the Ministry of  Health signed 5 agreements with MIBS for a total of 124 million  drams. Meanwhile, prior to his appointment to this position, two  agreements on the provision of services were concluded between the  Ministry and MIBS.

"MIBS" (Medical Institute named after Sergei Berezin, former Medical  Diagnostic Center of the International Institute of Biological  Systems – MDC MIBS), was established in 2003 with the attraction of  only private investment. The main activity is the creation of a  network of diagnostic centers in the Russian Federation and  neighboring countries to provide the population with high-tech  methods of diagnosis and treatment. Earlier, the Yerevan branch of  MIBS was headed by Arsen Torosyan.

“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
