Criminal Case Initiated on Apparent Abuses by Officials of “Homeland-Diaspora Center” SNCO of RA Ministry of Diaspora

31.08.2018 13:13

On the base of the materials prepared in General Department of Investigation of Particularly Important Cases of the RA Investigative Committee based on the materials received from the RA State Supervisory Service a criminal case was initiated on apparent abuses committed by officials of “Homeland-Diaspora Center” SNCO of the RA Ministry of Diaspora.

Pursuant to initial data, in 2015 within the grant provided by state budget a competition was announced by “Homeland-Diaspora Center” SNCO for purchasing services. Applications for participation in the competition were submitted by three companies. One of them offered a price by 21.244.200 AMD lower than those of other companies which was rejected. Instead, the agreements on service provision were signed with the other two companies causing significant damage to the state.

Besides, apparent abuses were also found during implementation of contracts signed in the result of competition announced in the framework of the grant program “Preparation, broadcasting, acquisition and reproduction of TV programs and video clips on Armenia-Diaspora partnership” from 2015 to 2018, in the activities of separate officials of “Homeland-Diaspora Center” SNCO in 2017 in the framework of the grant program “Come Home”. As a result, money in particularly large amount has been unduly withdrawn from the state budget and squandered.  

Considering that in the prepared materials there are apparent elements of abusing official authorities and squandering in particularly large amount by the officials of “Homeland-Diaspora Center” SNCO of the RA Ministry of Diaspora a criminal case was initiated in General Department of Investigation of Particularly Important Cases of the RA Investigative Committee according to the Part 1 of the Article 308, the Point 1 of the Part 3 of the Article 179 of RA Criminal Code.

An investigatory plan was worked out and necessary investigatory actions are conducted to find out all circumstances of the case, to clarify the frame of those having committed the alleged crime, to personalize the actions of each of them.

Note; Everyone charged with alleged crime offence shall be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law.
