Newspaper: Armenian oligarch's company worked in the shadow

 The Yerevan-based Haykakan Zhamanak (Armenian Time) newspaper says that the State Revenue Committee has published the list of the companies, whose funds on the tax accounts in early July 2014 are much bigger than in early July 2013. 

"For the first time the list features Natali Pharm controlled by MP from the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, oligarch Samvel Alexanyan. According to the data published, the amount indicated on the specified company's tax accounts in early July is by 139 mln AMD bigger than in early July 2013. What does it mean? Why have the figures grown? It will shortly become known whether Natali Pharm was operating in the shadow earlier if the State Revenue Committee publishes similar data for each ten-day period of the month", says the newspaper. 

To recall, on 24 May 2014 Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan told journalists that Samvel Alexanyan "promised to work in the tax field if everybody works so". "What he did earlier makes no difference for me. The most important thing is how the entrepreneurs will work now. The Finance Ministry is holding meetings with the businessmen to find out how they work", Abrahamyan said. In the meantime, he denied the reports that during a meeting with the businessmen he said that "at least 90% of the businessmen should work in the tax field".
