Today, an article entitled “Law For A Friend? Mystery Behind Appointment Of Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer” was published in printed media and through a digest of news from news websites, and it particularly stated that “newly appointed Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer Sergey Meghryan is a friend of Minister of Justice of the Republic of Armenia Rustam Badasyan and only through a legislative amendment he was able to be appointed to that position”.

Let us inform that, until recently, Minister Badasyan had ties with Sergey Meghryan during his years of study.

As far as the legislative amendments are concerned, on 21 January, the drafts of 65 laws on making amendments and supplements to several laws adopted by the National Assembly in the second reading and fully, were submitted by the Civil Service Bureau of the Office of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia and, among others, those draft Laws arose from the policy adopted and being implemented by the Government in the sector of reforms in the public service system.

As a result of those reforms, relevant changes have been made in not only the Compulsory Enforcement Service, but also in the Penitentiary Service and Rescue Service, and the requirements for positions in more than a dozen laws have been reviewed.

Thus, the claims that Sergey Meghryan is a friend of Minister of Justice of the Republic of Armenia Rustam Badasyan and that a legislative amendment was made to appoint Sergey Meghryan to the position, do not correspond to reality.
