Official of RA National Security Service is brought charge
2020-03-02

On the basis of the combination of sufficient evidence obtained during the preliminary investigation of the criminal case investigated at the RA Special Investigation Service, former Security Advisor  to RA Minister of Health, the head of the relevant unit of the RA NSS A. M. was charged for commitment of criminal offense provided for in Article 309 (part 1) of the RA Criminal Code, for excedding official powers.

According to the charge while occupying the position of Security Advisor to the RA Minister of Health from 2005-2018, A.M. established close relations with the Director of Medical Center A.M. and having learned that the latter had complained about the associate Director on financial S. O., offered his assistance to remove him from the post.

In February 2019 A.M. informed the Director of the Medical Center that the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia intended to reduce the allocations for state-ordered services to the Medical Center and that the aforementioned medical center had been deprived of the opportunity to provide co-payment medical services, so to resolve such issue it was necessary to organize that S. O. gives a bribe to Deputy Minister of Health Arsen Davtyan. A. M. assured that in this case criminal prosecution against S. O. and Arsen Davtyan will be initiated, and as a result the director of the medical center will be able to acquire S. O’s share in the shares of the hospital, which will be divided equally between him and the director A. M.

As a result, according to the agreements reached, the director of the medical center on March 18, 2019 invited S. O. to his office and offered to bribe Arsen Davtyan, but S. O., being informed on the agreement reached between the NSS officer A. M. and the director of medical center and their intention to do so, rejected  the director’s offer.

Recognizance not to leave was selected as a measure of restriction with regard to the accused. The investigator made a decision to temporarily suspend the office of the above-mentioned NSS official A.M.

Preliminary investigation is underway.
