ArmInfo. That what happened with the head of the State Control Service(SCS), David Sanasaryan, is an unpleasant incident.Press secretary of the Republican Party of Armenia, former Vice - Speaker of the National Assembly, Eduard Sharmazanov, stated this at a press conference on April 19.
"Tha what is happening now is connected with the Pashinyan's fiasco. Yesterday David Sanasaryan stated that this is a trumped-up accusation, and if so, the Pashinyan's government does not take a fair approach to its subordinates. If one of the officials accuses the authorities of fabricating the case, no guarantees that other cases were not fabricated, including cases against Robert Kocharyan and Manvel Grigoryan, "said Sharmazanov.
In turn, Vice-Speaker of Parliament Lena Nazaryan, referring to the case of Sanasaryan, said that in the fight against corruption, representatives of the new government will no longer divide people "into friends and strangers" as it was before. "We will consistently fight corruption. I trust the actions of the National Security Service and I believe that David Sanasryan could act for his own purposes," Nazaryan said. She also stated that she does not believe that one of the officials can be "set up", and also that someone, if he is guilty of a crime, can go unpunished.
The Sasna Tsrer party also made a statement in which it noted that the persecution of Sanasaryan is "a qualitatively new stage in the revenge of the Kremlin system that holds Armenia dependent on Russia". According to the party, Sanasaryan is prosecuted for insubordination and resistance to this system.
The statement of the party that put out ArmInfo also stresses: "This system not only easily overcame the wave of revolution, but also gained unconditional trust of the new government. If Pashinyan does not realize this, then in the near future he and his team members will be removed from the political arena and the country will once again be in a swamp of violence, injustice and corruption, "the party's representatives stress, noting that the only goal of this system is to return to the past.
"Sasna Tsrer" advises Pashinyan to give a political and legal assessment of the activities of the previous regime, establish transitional justice, implement political, economic and agency lustration, implement fundamental reforms of the state system. Also, representatives of the party propose to dissolve the National Security Service and create a new body. "At the same time, the director, deputy director of the National Security Service should be removed from their positions," the statement said.
