Armenia’s in Georgian Region Fear Repercussions of Corruption Crackdown

AKHALKALAK (Armenpress)–The crackdown on corruption–recently declared by the new Georgian authorities–has raised concern among the ethnic Armenia’s population of Javakhk who fear that innocent people who used to work for the previous administration–may fall victim to the campaign.

Chairman of the Akhalkalak-based Virk party David Rstakian–was quoted by the local news media as saying that local Armenia’s who are already in a dire situation–now face another problem.

Rstakian argued that a few instances of graft reported in the region were insubstantial–given the lack of money circulating in the area. "Corruption is flourishing in Tbilisi–where authorities receive millions of dollars in aid–but invest not a single dollar in the region," he said.
