The Special Investigation Service has initiated a criminal case according to the RA Criminal Code, Article 213, part 2, point 1 and Article 178, part 3, point 1, based on former senior prosecutor of Kotayk Region Prosecutor’s Office D.Z.’s appeal and citizens Melanya S.’s and Sasun M.’s complaints.
D.Z. stated in her appeal that during employment in the Prosecutor’s Office, namely January 2012, she had borrowed 5000 USD at a monthly interest rate of 10 % from a friend of the Kotayk region deputy prosecutor, who acted as an intermediary between the two parties. Later D.Z. borrowed money from other people too in order to pay off the interest and found herself in a difficult situation.
It has also been found that D.Z. resigned from office in the prosecution system on July 4, 2013 and is now in the USA.
On the other hand, the deputy prosecutor of Kotayk region and his friend denied in their explanations that they had lent money to the former prosecutor.
Moreover, data have been obtained concerning the fact that prior to leaving for the USA, D.Z. borrowed money on various pretexts from a number of people by abuse of trust and hasn’t returned it.
Thus, D.Z. has borrowed 8000 USD from citizen Sasun M. and hasn’t returned it; from citizen Melanya S. D.Z. has borrowed about 55 000 USD on various pretexts since April, 2011 and hasn’t returned it either.
Preliminary investigation is being conducted.
Notice: A person suspected or accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proved guilty in the procedure established by the Criminal Procedure Code of RA by the effective court judgement.
