30.10.2019 | Corruption abuses in the amount of more than 2 billion AMD in the processes of renting and alienating “Tsaghkadzor General Sport Complex”

State Interests Protection Department of the RA Prosecutor General's Office has  conducted studies concerning the legality of renting and alienation process of property of “Tsaghkadzor General Sport Complex”CJSC. For this purpose, the necessary documents and information have been requested and received from Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia, Committee on State Property Management of the Republic of Armenia, State Revenue Committee of the Republic of Armenia, Cadastre Committee of the Republic of Armenia and “National Archive of Armenia” SNCO.

 

In the course of the study, it has been found out that by the Decision of the RA Government dated 21.01. 2010 N 74-Ն, “Tsaghkadzor General Sport Complex”CJSC has been allowed to alienate the property / with a total area of 32237.1 sq. m. / provided on a rental basis to the company “Ն”. And company “Ն” has been allowed to alienate land plot / with a total area of 76121 sq. m. / for 541.7 million AMD.

 

The basis for the decision of the RA Government has been the agreement concluded on November 8, 2006 between the CJSC and the company “Ն” on renting for 50 years the land plot, buildings, administrative centers, restaurants, swimming pools, sports centers and other buildings located in Tsaghkadzor. By the study it has been found out that in case of buying and selling the property, termination of the contract by the lessor, there are provisions that are contrary to the state interests of the company.

 

As a justification for the draft decision of the RA Government N 74-Ն on the permission of alienation of the property has been mentioned that the company “Ն” in accordance with the rental agreement has already made an investment of more than 3.4 billion AMD. In the meantime, it has been found out that as justification for the investment have been presented invoices and executive acts of construction works drawn up during 2007-2008 in the amount of about 2 billion AMD. Moreover, according to the data received from the SRC of the RA in the tax case of the company “Ն” there aren’t any data on calculation documents of executive acts in the amount of 738 million AMD, drawn up during 2007-2008.

 

According to the property evaluation report received from the State Property Management Committee of the Republic of Armenia, the market value of the alienated property by the aforementioned decision of the RA Government for the indicated year could amount to 1.3 billion AMD. Thus, the RA Government has been provided with inaccurate data on the value of the property, its evaluation and investments.

 

It has also been found out that by this decision of the RA Government, after the alienation of a part of the property, in 2019 the market value of the remaining property actually used by the company “Ն” is about 6.1 billion AMD and in case of renting property with a market value during 2010-2018 the rental price would be about 704 million AMD. Meanwhile, the company has never paid for the rent.

 

In the course of the study it has been found out that the unfinished building with an area of 2323.3 sq. m. back in 2005 has been estimated 604.3 million AMD. In June 2011 the market price of the building and materials of the building have been estimated 50 million AMD. The building has been destroyed and in 2011 it has been alienated for 3.6 million AMD. However, there are no data on the transfer of these amounts to the account of CJSC.

 

Thus, in the course of the study factual data have been obtained regarding the use of position contrary to the interests of the service by the responsible officials of the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs of the Republic of Armenia, provision of false information, alienation of the state property of the CJSC at a price 3.3 times lower than the market value, theft of property, as well as for not taking measures to charge rent for the use of the property.
