Syunik Governor Suren Khachatryan Dismissed

YEREVAN (A.W.)—Syunik province Governor Suren Khachatryan was dismissed from his duties during a government session in Yerevan on Oct. 6. During the session, Armenia’s Minister of Territorial Administration and Development Davit Lokayan of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) said that Khachatryan was dismissed in accordance to his resignation letter.

Lokyan also presented a draft on appointing Vahe Hakobyan as the new Governor of the Syunik province, however, the government Chief of Staff Davit Harutyunyan said that President Serge Sarkisian must sign Khachatryan’s resignation letter before discussing the new appointment.

Khachatryan has been a controversial figure in Armenian politics for years. In November 2011, he physically attacked businesswoman Silva Hambarzumyan in the lobby of the Marriot Hotel in Yerevan. He was reportedly angered over her accusations that he stole over 100 million drams ($258,000) worth of equipment from her gold mine.

In 2013, Khachatryan resigned from his post as Syunik Governor—presumably because of a shooting incident near his mansion in Goris— but was reappointed in Sept. 2014 by Prime minister Hovik Abrahamyan.

  1. We’re glad this violent crook is no longer governor (again), but we are outraged that he is not arrested and thrown in jail as all criminals must be – unlike the innocent citizens who currently rot in prison without charge or due process of law.

    Armenia will begin to see great prosperity as soon as the criminal regime takes the place of the innocent citizens in prison!

    • {…. we are outraged}

      How many people do ‘we’ represent?
      In which election did ‘we’ win majority?

      {Armenia will begin to see great prosperity as soon as the criminal regime takes the place of the innocent citizens in prison!}

      Armenia will begin to see great prosperity as soon as Armenia is cleansed of the SorosaNGO infestation, and the SorosaCadres who organize illegal insurrections take their well deserved place in jails and prisons.

  2. Finally!HE IS A TOTAL DISGRACE.
