CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP: criminal charges are filed against 11 people, including HHK officials and SAS Supermarket director, for electoral fraud during the 2017 Yerevan elections, in the infamous “Zibilix” case in which paperwork was found in a recycle bin that indicated fraud. One person was charged few months ago. Now we have more details. A HHK high ranking official contacted SAS Supermarket director and asked for a financial support to create an AMD 75mln fund which was used to distribute 10k bribes to voters in the Arabkir district, through various local criminal elements. (That’s at least 6,500 fraudulent votes from that district with that one voter fraud scheme alone. Taron Margaryan won the 2017 elections.) http://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/144334
