Mariam Mughdousyan, press affairs coordinator for the Hartounian family, says that tax evasion charges levelled against the directors of GH Storage Enterprises by the State Revenue Committee SRC) is merely an attempt to appropriate the assets of the family.
Mughdousyan argues that the manner in which the case is proceeding is ample proof of the nefarious aims of the government agency.
She points to the fact that on June 22, 2011, SRC inspector Rafayel Mkrtchyan confiscated eight computers at the company’s offices and well as personal computers.
Mughdousyan says that the company has made several requests for the computers to be returned. More than seven months later, the computers and their hard drives remain in the possession of the SRC.
She says that the computer data has been thoroughly inspected but the SRC has balked on its promise to return them.
In her press release, Mughdousyan notes that when GH Storage Enterprises director Sevak Arzaruni left the firm, he took one of the company’s computers with him but that the SRC has never seen fit to seize it.
She says that this computer had all the pertinent financial data regarding the company and that the SRC examiners should be tracking it down rather to get at the truth of the case.
Arzaruni was managing GH Enterprises at the time of the alleged tax infractions, Mughdousyan argues, and should be the focus of the SRC’s attention.
She says that the SRC is out to damage the company as well as to hold onto the computers worth around 1.5 million AMD.
