YEREVAN.- Member of Parliament Manvel Grigoryan, the lawmaker currently under pre-trial detention suspected in embezzlement and fraud, has addressed the government – expressing willingness to donate nearly 330 hectares of land of private property to the state.
The land is part of a company owned by Grigoryan in Aknalich, a village in Armavir province.
The land includes 5500 sq.m. of buildings and is worth roughly 6 billion drams.
Manvel Grigoryan, a retired army general, is under arrest since July 19. At the time of his arrest he also served as president of the Yerkrapah Union of Volunteers, but was later ousted by the board of the organization amid highly scandalous accusations.
