09.06.2021 | 2 criminal cases were sent to the court regarding the lease of a land plot belonging to communities by the abuse of official position

Two criminal cases were sent to court regarding the lease of a land plot owned by the community in Shirak region and crimes committed in sublease transactions.

 

In particular, in the course of preliminary investigation of the criminal case initiated in  the Prosecutor's Office of Shirak region on 07.05.2020. under Part 2 of Art. 308 of the RA Criminal Code it was substantiated that the former head of Jradzor G.A. on 25.02.2009 signed a lease agreement with a resident of Yerevan in the amount of  4680 AMD for a period of 25 years of a land plot with an area of 2.6 hectares of agricultural importance.

 

For the commission of this criminal act, the former head of Jradzor community was charged under Part 2 of Art. 308 of the RA Criminal Code. From the damage caused to the community were recovered 2.5 million AMD.

 

By another criminal case initiated on 07.05.2020 under Part 2 of Article 308 of the RA Criminal Code were obtained sufficient evidence that the former head of the community Hoghmik of Shirak region A. K. learnt about the intention of one of the companies, operating in the field of telecommunication on installing antenna station in the community. After that, with the sister of a familiar employee from the "Amasia" service office of the RA Cadastre Committee on 30.04.2009. A.K. signed a lease agreement for a land plot with an area of 2.5813 hectares for the amount of 4600 AMD.

 

Then, 7 days after the transaction, by the sublease agreement concluded for a period of 24 years on the basis of false documents, a small part of the specified land plot with an area of 0.02 hectares for the amount of 480.000 AMD was transferred by the tenant to a telecommunication company. This is in the case when the agreement for leasing a land plot for the purpose of carrying out agricultural activities envisaged a requirement to use the land plot exclusively for the production of agricultural products, and not fullfilling this requirement was the basis for terminating the agreement, which was not implemented.

 

As a result, the landlord's family during 2009-2016 received 3.6 million AMD, and during the specified period the community received only 36.800 AMD.

 

The former head of Hogmik community was charged under Part 2 of Art. 308 and Part 1 of Art. 314 of the RA Criminal Code. During the pre-trial criminal proceedings, from the damage caused to the community were recovered 1.750.000 AMD.

 

Prosecutor's Office of Shirak region confirmed the indictment on the above 2 cases and the criminal cases were sent to the Court of General Jurisdiction of the First Instance of Shirak region with a view to consider the case on the merits.

 

 Notice: Every person suspected in or charged with a criminal offense shall be presumed innocent unless proved guilty in the manner prescribed by the RA Criminal Procedure Code and unless the verdict comes into legal force.
