Post SAS Scandal: Armenias Prosecutor General to Examine Report of Employee Intimidation

YEREVAN (A.W.)Armenias Prosecutor General announced on April 14 that it is examining a troubling report published by Yerevan-based news outlet Hayastan24 on April 13, whichincludes a 40-minute recording of what is believed to be a staff meeting held by businessman Artak Sargsyans senior aides in the days leading up to the April 2 Parliamentary Elections.

In the recording,an unknown man can be heard threatening to fire employees of Sargsyans SAS supermarket chain who fail to guarantee in writing that their friends and families will vote for Sargsyana Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) candidate.

For example, Anush Adamyan has brought 14 votes, lets applaud Anush Adamyan, says the man in Armenian, as reported by RFE/RLs Armenian service. How come Anush can bring [so many votes] but Ashot Aghakhanyan cant?

At another point in the recording, the man can be heard threatening employees. Why havent you brought votes? You dont want to? If you treat us like that, then well treat you five times as badly,” he says.

The United States Embassy in Yerevan welcomed an announcement made by Prosecutor Generals office to investigate the report. A credible and transparent investigation of this kind would be in line with the Prime Ministers Feb. 9 warning against the use of administrative resources. We trust that the government will ensure there is no retaliatory action against any individual or organization that comes forward with credible information for investigation, read a part of the statement released by the Embassy.

Sargsyan has held a seat in Armenias Parliament since 2004 and has not made public statements on the Parliament floor for at least five years.

This latest controversy comes less than three weeks after the Armenian civil society group the Union of Informed Citizens (UIC) announced on March 24that one of its activistsposing as a senior Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) representative telephoned the directors of 136 schools and kindergartens in and out of Yerevan, and revealed that 114 of them admitted to drawing up lists of students parents, as well as schoolteachers and staff, who promised to support the RPA in the 2017 Armenian Parliamentary Elections.

The directors of 30 public schools and kindergartens have since sued the UIC for posing as RPA representatives and tricking them into confessing that they have told their staffs and childrens parents to vote for the RPA.
