ArmInfo.In the apartment of the Chairman of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan, the Special Investigation Service conducts a search. This was announced on January 24 on his Facebook page by lawyer Amram Makinyan. As noted, upon completion of the search, the team of lawyers of the head of the Constitutional Court will make a statement.
It should be noted that at the end of December last year, Tovmasyan was charged with abuse of power, resulting in negligence with grave consequences. The CCC explained that this was the same criminal case in which charges were brought under part 2 of article 308 of the Criminal Code of Armenia (abuse of power, resulting in negligent grave consequences) to Tovmasyan's godson - Norayr Panosyan.
Earlier, the investigation established that the former employee of the Ministry of Justice of Armenia Norayr Panosyan, occupying the post of head of the Legislation Inspection Inspectorate in the Ministry of Justice in 2011-2014, together with a number of other officials, deprived two notaries of the opportunity to register their work premises for free use. Panosyan wanted to purchase these premises himself. To do this, he agreed with the employees of the Ministry of Justice and the City Hall of Yerevan, who organized fictitious auctions for the sale of these premises, at prices significantly lower than market prices. In particular, the territory at the 1st dead end of Baghramyan Avenue, with a market value of 63.4 million drams (about 133 thousand dollars), was sold for 47.5 million, and on Bagratunyats Street, worth 33.5 million (70 thousand dollars) ), - for 3.8 million. These territories belonged to the Municipality of Yerevan, which as a result received less income, and notaries lost their free territory for work. Also detained was an employee of ZAO "Land and Real Estate Operations> Tigran Ter-Harutyunov, who gave an underestimated assessment of real estate. Norayr Panosyan was previously arrested, but subsequently, by decision of the Court of Appeal, he was released.
