Artsakh: Dadivank Mayor Resigns Amidst Corruption Allegations

Bowing to allegations of corruption, Alvard Ohanyan, mayor of the Artsakh community of Dadivank, resigned today.

Residents of Dadivank, in the north of Artsakh, had staged demonstrations for the past several days, demanding that Ohanyan resign because she was using construction material allocated by the government for personal use.

Surprisingly, Ohanyan will remain as acting mayor until October 1, when a replacement will be appointed.

Ohanyan denies any wrongdoing.

“I did nothing that could become crucial for Artsakh later on. I wrote my resignation much earlier,” she told Hetq, claiming that she submitted it on September 1, but was told by the provincial government to go on vacation and that a decision would be made afterwards.

The main contender is rumored to be the driver of the community’s ambulance.

Just great! Corruption is decreasing daily in the new Armenia! The next test towards true rule-of-law justice will be if corrupt criminals are found guilty, jailed and the assets they stole are seized and returned.
