YEREVAN (Armenpress) — Member of Parliament Manvel Grigoryan, the lawmaker currently in pre-trial detention suspected of massive embezzlement and fraud, has expressed willingness to donate nearly 330 hectares of land to the state.
The land is part of a company owned by Grigoryan in Aknalich, a village in the province of Armavir.
“The representative of Manvel Grigoryan has sent a document to our committee stating that he [Grigoryan] is willing to donate territory without any obligations. I don’t possess other details, since the agreement is under the authority of the other deputy chairman of the department,” Sergo Atanesyan, deputy chairman of the State Property Management Department said.
The other deputy, Gevorg Loretsyan, confirmed the report.
“We will organize the process of receiving the property as defined by procedures,” he said.
Loretsyan said the land includes 5500 square meters of buildings and is worth roughly 6 billion drams (around $12 million).
