Former Syunik Provincial Governor Surik Khachatryan Launches Company in Great Britain
Former Syunik Provincial Governor Surik Khachatryan recently registered a company in Great Britain.
It’s not the first time Khachatryan has had business dealings there.
Khachatryan and his partner, Abbey King Khawaja, own 50% each in the new company, Sunik Investments Limited.
Of interest is the fact that in the documents Khachatryan is listed as a resident of Great Britain. (Khawaja, a British citizen, is listed as a resident of Great Britain as well).
The address of the company is listed as 8 Lynwood Close, Ferndown, Dorset, England, BH22 9TD. Charter capital is listed as £100.
Khachatryan served as Syunik Governor from 2004-2013 and from 2014-2016. He was dismissed from office both times.
On December 1, 2016, two months after being dismissed as Syunik Governor, Khachatryan became a partner in a company called Kerkhoff Legal LLP. (This company was founded in 2014 by two German citizens, Gerd Kerhoff and Werner Reistel.) Kerhoff and Reistel sold their interest in the company to Khachatryan and Hans Ludwig, also a German citizen. The company was dissolved in June 2017.
Hetq attempted to reach Khachatryan by phone to no avail. The operator said the number had been temporarily disconnected.
We’ve learnt that Khachatryan has left Armenia.
