YEREVAN — Hetq.am has started a campaign to investigate the assets owned by Robert Kocharian, Armenia’s second president, and his family members.

To accomplish this, the website is calling for its readers who have ties to the Kocharian family and to businesses linked to the former president to assist them in this project.

“While Hetq has compiled, and verified, a certain amount of information in the past regarding Kocharian family assets, conditions in Armenia today allow us to do much more. True, we still cannot get the names of shareholders of closed joint stock companies. It’s against the law. Perhaps, if the new government is able and willing to introduce a set of legislative changes making such information accessible, we could confirm much.

State investigative agencies might also be able to receive information from various banks regarding a host of murky transactions.

We’re also calling on our compatriots overseas to provide us with any information they might have regarding the assets of the Kocharian family. Please write to us at hetq@hetq.am. We ensure the confidentiality of all submissions” the website stated.
