Armenian Tax Chief Probed Over Business Ownership

A state anti-corruption body has launched an inquiry into a possible conflict of interest stemming from the alleged ownership by Gagik Khachatrian, the controversial head of Armenia’s tax and customs services, of lucrative businesses.

The state Commission on the Ethics of High-Ranking Officials has given Khachatrian until Tuesday to provide detailed explanations regarding persistent media reports implicating him in large-scale economic activities.

The commission based at the presidential administration building in Yerevan issued the order on April 13 in response to a request by the Anti-Corruption Center (ACC), the Armenian branch of the Berlin-based watchdog Transparency International. The ACC in turn cited an article published in the pro-opposition daily “Haykakan Zhamanak” last October.
