Lori Regional Prosecutor’s Office has initiated a criminal case based on the evident abuse by the competent officials of “Lori” Water Using Company, as the official website of RA Chief Prosecutor’s office informs.
In the course of the investigation factual data have been obtained that “Getik”, then “Lori” Water Using Company supplied irrigation water to the water users in Lernavan Community in Lori Region. From 2010 to 2018, the competent people involved in the administration of the company hired a person in the position of chief water distributor in Lernavan through concluding relevant employment agreements. Though this person had never appeared at work and hadn’t performed the contractual obligations in person, salaries in large amounts of money had been debited on his name – 1,365,781 AMD. Later they withdrew money from the ATMs with the bank cards they had and received this money to use them for their own personal needs, thus embezzling large sums of money in this way.
It has also been found out that the competent people involved in the administration of the company had drawn up fake employment agreements and fake reports on the performance of works in order to hide the embezzlement of salaries, where they included false information about the payment of salaries and submitted documents with false content to the governance bodies of the company.
The preliminary investigation of this criminal case has been assigned to Lori Regional Criminal Investigative Department of RA Investigative Committee.
