Still in 2016 the General Prosecutor's Office of Armenia examined the reports of the Ministry of Agriculture's internal audit on the lease of state forest fund lands by “ArmForest” SNCO, as well as the copies of its documents.
It has been found that there are a number of shortcomings in the process of setting rental rates and making appropriate amendments to contracts, as well as in collecting unpaid fees.
Investigation of the lawsuits filed by the SNCO revealed that the SNCO officials in 2006-2018 abusing their official positions, filing lawsuits within the prescribed period, and appealing ungrounded judicial acts, as well as failing to comply with their obligations to ensure the lawful enforcement of the lawsuits resulted in a material loss of 131.146.423 AMD to the State negligently causing grave consequences.
Therefore, a criminal case has been initiated in the State Interest Protection Department of the RA Prosecutor General's Office based on this case.
