ArmInfo. The Special  Investigation Service has provided new details on the case involving  former Mayor of Yerevan, former Head of the Commission on Regulation  of Public Services Robert Nazaryan.

According to the SIS, Robert Nazaryan, as well as former members of  the Commission, Shiraz Kirakosyan and Mushegh Koshetsyan, who were  detained on the same day, were charged with committing socially  dangerous acts envisaged by part 2 of Article 308 of the RA Criminal  Code. According to the investigation, all of them, based on their  personal interest in establishing benefits for individual business  entities and group interests, during 2011 abused their official  powers, which, through negligence, led to dire consequences. On  suspicion of committing an act stipulated by the same article of the  RA Criminal Code, former Deputy Chairman of the Commission Nikolay  Grigoryan was also detained yesterday.

The investigator of the SIS submitted a petition to the court of  general jurisdiction of Yerevan to apply preventive measures in the  form of arrest against Nazaryan, Kirakosyan and Koshetsyan. The  investigation continues.

According to the investigation, Nazaryan, under the pretext of  encouraging the development of hydropower in the Republic of Armenia,  on September 16, 2011 received a government decision "On the proposal  to establish maximum capacity for small hydroelectric power plants",  actually adopted with the aim of establishing benefits for Dzoraget  Hydro LLC, owned by the son-in-law of the ex-president RA Serzh  Sargsyan to Mikael Minasyan. Nazaryan, without proper expert research  and analysis of the proposed changes, ignoring the water resources  available in the RA and, as a result, the statistics on the  construction of hydroelectric power plants, through the competent  department of the Commission, developed a draft corresponding  decision. As a result, "Dzoraget Hydro" was registered in the list of  small hydroelectric power plants, taking advantage of the opportunity  to sell electricity at higher and more stable tariffs, and as a  result received 7,052,065,099 drams from individuals and legal  entities that consume electricity in Armenia.

It should be reminded that in the criminal case concerning the  Dzoraget hydroelectric power plant ("Dzora HPP"), the accused is the  former head of the RA Defense Ministry Seyran Ohanyan, who is  suspected of embezzling property in the amount of 1,046,400,000 AMD.  Last fall, RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called on Mikael  Minasyan to return to his homeland and answer questions from the  Special Investigation Service. In particular, it was about the  illegal, as the Prime Minister noted, privatization of a strategic  facility in Lori region. According to media reports, this facility is  the Dzoraget hydroelectric power station.
