Pashinyan commented on the accusations against Serzh Sargsyan

ArmInfo. Armenian Prime  Minister Nikol Pashinyan commented on the charges against the third  President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan.

Thus, Pashinyan from the rostrum of the parliament, answering the  corresponding question, answered that in essence, he can only say  what is already in the media. "According to publications, the case is  related to a program for subsidizing fuel in the agricultural sector.  Mr. Avinyan and I remembered that it was our government that covered  up this program, because we thought it was a corruption program, from  which in fact, the villagers did not benefit. We were criticized for  this, it's now becoming clear that a tender has been announced for  the subsidization program for these petroleum products and a cheap  price has been offered during the tender.  According to the case,  Serzh Sargsyan instructed the government body to purchase diesel not  from the company offering cheaper price, but a company whose name I'm  sure will not say anything to any of you. The name of this company is  Flash, "Pashinyan said, adding that this is the whole story.

"I believe that the investigation will find out. I can't say anything  more than made public," Pashinyan summed up.

As ArmInfo reported earlier, the third president of Armenia Serzh  Sargsyan is accused of organizing embezzlement on a particularly  large scale - about 500 million drams. So, according to the report of  the Special Investigative Service of the Republic of Armenia, during  the investigative measures within the framework of the criminal case  under investigation, and when summing up the sufficient evidence  obtained, Serzh Sargsyan was charged on the grounds of clause 1 part  3 of Art. 38-179 of the Criminal Code- an act dangerous to society.  As a preventive measure, a recognizance not to leave was taken from  Sargsyan. Investigative measures in the framework of the criminal  case are ongoing.
