As the state budget for 2020 is currently being debated in the National Assembly, which, as Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has confessed, is the first budget for which the new government bears full responsibility, we would like to present a special proposal to MPs.

Dear Members of Parliament, Demand that the budget include a specific line on how much money has been deposited in a potential treasury as a result of the fight against corruption and criminal proceedings against many people in that context.
For example, today it was reported that the actions of the former Chairman of the State Revenue Committee (SRC) and former Minister of Finance Gagik Khachatryan caused more than 7 billion 3 million AMD damage to the state and organizations. The National Security Service's (NSS) Investigative Department reported this in response to a written inquiry by Liberty.

Is Gagik Khachatryan going to repair that damage or maybe he has already recovered? The public has the right to know the answers to these questions. Cases of this kind have been brought against various representatives of the former government. And now is the time for the revolutionary authorities to hold the public accountable and to tell in great detail how much money they are borrowing and where they are going.
Earlier, the press service of the Special Investigation Service informed that at the time the criminal case related to Gagik Khachatryan being investigated at that time was restored to the state budget.
That is to say, former SRC Chairman Gagik Khachatryan has re-allocated only 800 million AMD to the state budget for 7.3 billion drams, which is almost 9 times less than the amount of damage he is accused of. Agree, this is a very funny number. In this situation, the government is either obliged to show that the money has really been restored or it is necessary to publicly apologize to the man for discrediting him and declaring him a corruptor. If neither of these two are done, one has to make a very logical conclusion: the new government has just made a corrupt deal with the former, in this case Gagik Khachatryan, and has agreed to water part of the money to be returned to the budget, and a large part put in his pocket.
And in general, it is impossible to talk about the state robbery committed by the former day and night and not to show at least one line in the state budget how much has been recovered from that robbery. This is a marked disrespect to the proud citizens of Armenia.
We propose MPs, especially the opposition, to demand that such a line be included in the draft budget.
