ArmInfo.Armenian police are preparing materials received from the Prosecutor General's Office on the transfer to the Yerevan Municipality of the company "Parking City Service" (maintenance of Yerevan paid parking lots), the results of the study of which revealed violations. This was reported by the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office.
According to the source, it was revealed that in November 2016 the Yerevan Municipality was negotiating with the consortium "Parking City Service" and "Locator" in connection with the issue of transferring control over financial flows resulting from parking fees and transfer of control to the community. Based on the results of the negotiations, a protocol was drawn up in which it was noted that the community of Yerevan accepts 100% of the company's shares as a gift. In turn, the mayor's office is obligated to repay them, after evaluating investments, assets and liabilities.
However, it was revealed that having violated the agreement, without conducting an audit at Parking City Service LLC, based on the advisory opinion received, the company's funds were valued at 1.788.000.000 drams. Then, by a decision of the Council of Elders of the Yerevan Municipality on November 21, 2016, 100% of the company's shares were transferred to the Yerevan Municipality. By the decision of the Council of Elders, the shares of the Parking City Service company were transferred to the trust management of the Locator company. Meanwhile, it was found out that during the transfer of shares, the real price of the company's assets was overstated, and as a result, the mayor's office paid 1.051.113.700 drams more than the real value of the assets. As a result, the Municipality of Yerevan, not being a party to the company's agreements and having no obligations, paid from the budget in 2017 to 2018 713,000,000 in repayment of the company's loan.
Moreover, the company officials from 2017 to 2918, as well as in the first quarter of 2019, as a result of an incorrect calculation of the salaries of employees, pocketed thereby 20.714.515 drams. A criminal case has been instituted on 308 and 179 articles of the RA Criminal Code. The proceedings were transferred to the Investigative Committee.
