In the result of large-scale investigative and other procedural actions, as well as operative-intelligence measures it was found out and grounded that the former deputy Mayor of Yerevan, later the Mayor of Yerevan Taron Margaryan, using his official authorities against service interests, assigned the officials of the municipality to separate the land plots from the ones with a surface of 13.172 s/m occupied by “Yerevan’s Special School N 16” SNCO located at 40, Acharyan, Yerevan, as well as with a surface of 6452,9 s/m occupied by “Preschool Educational Institution N 64 of Yerevan” SNCO located at 12, Avanesov, Yerevan which later were alienated to his friends and relatives.
