IRS investigation concludes that Serj's family's SPAYKA company exported 18bln worth tomatoes to EEU in recent times, part of which was hidden through falsification of documents to avoid 2bln in taxes. Criminal case is launched https://youtu.be/wfC8ZyHkIfk?t=65

Investigation finds that the amount of underpaid taxes and fees by certain car servicing companies has reached 2bln, after 10 more companies are investigated in provinces. They abused licenses issued by the government https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHd2bC3XAAI

Malishka mayor is arrested for bribery and election fraud. On 2017, he allegedly received money from an MP candidate (doesn't say who) and distributed 10k money to 500 voters. https://youtu.be/qx4ITZADhTI?t=450

The number of people leaving the HHK party is high https://factor.am/67988.html

Times paper has information suggesting that Jermuk Group owner will sell the company and leave Armenia, possibly out of concerns that NSS "might get to him too". There are long standing rumors that he got the Jermuk factory through threats and machinations https://factor.am/67971.html

Police raids Artsakh's former deputy Prime Minister's house and business buildings. They were looking for items similar to what NSS found in Manvel Grigoryan's house. The court had received enough information suggesting that deputy PM might have stolen and shared some products with Manvel https://youtu.be/A-y32r4a89g?t=16

CivilNet reports: Under Taron Margaryan, Yerevan municipality's high ranking officials' relatives, as well as ruling HHK party's allies, have repeatedly "won" rights to provide services to the city. Deals worth billions were made in a non-transparent way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMqJCgQ5-8M

A scandal around one of the officials appointed by the IRS president. The newly appointed vice-president is accused of being part of the "old system". He participated in the government-business negotiations in which certain supermarkets were allowed to avoid taxes. Earlier, the NSS questioned him as a witness. He is not officially accused of wrongdoing. The critics also question his decision to hire an official who is related to him https://factor.am/68005.html

Protesters stop Catholicos Garegin B's car, demand his resignation, accuse him of corruption, turning the church into a business center. Human Rights Ombudsman criticizes the aggressiveness of the protesters https://youtu.be/wVrL44XjLVA?t=252

Yelq will not have a candidate for Yerevan mayor. Cites an urgent need to dissolve the Municipality Council (which elects mayor) for past irregularities. HHK says they won't have a candidate either. Insiders say HHK won't vote at all. This means no candidate will receive the required number of votes to become a mayor. This means the Council itself will be dissolved, and PM Pashinyan will appoint a temporary mayor (possibly existing HHK member) until new Council is formed and mayor is elected http://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/141581

Quick video explaining how the new mayor will be elected https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMqJCgQ5-8M

A new laboratory will be built near the border train station, where certain types of imported foods will be tested for quality before being allowed into Armenia via trains. This will speed up the importer's job. https://youtu.be/A-y32r4a89g?t=343

Another Sasna Tsrer member is released http://en.a1plus.am/en.a1plus.am/1276061.html

Shaqiri will join Liverpool. Neymar won't join Real Madrid. Christiano Ronaldo will join Juventus.
