Prosecutor General`s Office of Armenia: In 2020, the number of  criminal cases of a corrupt nature decreased by 11.9%

ArmInfo. In 2020, the number of criminal cases of a corrupt nature decreased by 11.9% or 167 compared to the same period in 2019. The Prosecutor General's Office  of Armenia reports that in the past year, 1,810 materials were  prepared on corruption-related crimes, and 1,232 criminal cases were  initiated.

At the same time, the ministry is convinced that the reduction in the  number of crimes of this nature is due to two factors: "First, before  the amendments to the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia dated  March 25, 2020, the list of corruption crimes was determined by the  orders of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Armenia,  according to which 70 crimes were considered corruption crimes. In  particular, the data of 2019 are summarized within the specified  number of crimes. Meanwhile, according to the legislative amendments,  the list of corruption crimes is defined by the RA Criminal Code,  which includes 28 crimes, and the results of 2020 were summed up on  the basis of statistical data on these crimes.  The second reason for  the law enforcement agencies was the restrictions imposed in the  country against the background of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020,  as well as the problems caused by the war in Artsakh," the Prosecutor  General's Office noted.

Nevertheless, the department continued, in 2020, it was possible to  complete 716 criminal cases of a corrupt nature, of which 183 were  criminal cases against 410 people were sent to court with  indictments. In total, 1,356 people were brought to justice in 2,535  criminal cases related to corruption, which is 7.3% more than in  2019.

The criminal prosecution of 204 people, 61% of whom were dismissed  due to groundlessness.  At the same time, positive results were  recorded in terms of compensation for the damage caused to the state  by this crime. In particular, 223% or 2.5 billion drams more damage  was recovered for completed materials and criminal cases of a corrupt  nature (2 billion drams in 2019, 4.5 billion drams in 2020).  In  general, the damage to the state in criminal cases pending in 2020  amounted to about 227 billion drams against about 105.7 billion drams  in 2019.

Of the persons brought to criminal responsibility in the framework of  criminal cases of corruption investigated in 2020, 671 are civil  servants and officials, which is 26.6% more than in 2019 (530). Among  them are the outgoing President of the Republic of Armenia, the  former Chairman of the National Assembly, deputies, ministers, deputy  ministers, the Chairman of the Constitutional Court of the Republic  of Armenia, the judge of the Court of General Jurisdiction, the  judges of the bankruptcy Court, the Chairman of the City Planning  Committee of the Republic of Armenia, the Chief of the Police of the  Republic of Armenia and the Deputy Chief of the Police, the Head of  the State Property Department, the former Ambassador of the Republic  of Armenia, about one and a half hundred officials of the Armed  Forces of the Republic of Armenia, including commanders of military  units, the former head of the Air Defense Department, etc.
