In two educational institutions of the Shirak region, cases of obvious corruption abuse have been established, for which the regional prosecutor's office initiated criminal cases.

 

In particular, it was recorded that in 2014-2017 academic years in the Gyumri branch of the Armenian State University of Economics, students continued to attend classes, despite poor grades. It was found that during the specified academic period, 7 students were given unsatisfactory marks, which was recorded in their personal cards. However, in May 2016 and 2017, these students received graduation diplomas from the university. The results of the investigations were sent to the Mush police division of Gyumri.

 

Another criminal case was initiated following the results of investigations in Gyumri school N37. Here we are talking about giving a bribe, receiving a bribe and mediating in receiving a bribe. In particular, a message was received in the police stating that for refusing to reduce the staff in the specified school, the person gave in the form of a bribe half of his salary to the school principal at the request of the latter. It was found out that the funds were transferred through the school clerk.

 

Criminal proceedings were instituted on both facts: in the Gyumri branch of the Armenian State University of Economics, a criminal case was initiated on the grounds of a crime, prescribed by the RA Criminal Code Article 314 part 1, and in the 37th school – the RA Criminal Code Article 311 part 1, Article 312 part 1 and Article 313 part 1.

In these cases, 14 persons were charged, including one vice-rector of the university, specialists of the institute, directors and deputy directors of schools.
