Prosecutor general sacks 80 subordinates since last October

YEREVAN, June 25. / ARKA /. Armenia’ prosecutor general Gevorg Kostanyan said today he had sacked about 80 prosecutors since last October when he was approved by 103 votes of lawmakers for the post.

Before that Gevorg Kostanian served as the country’s chief military prosecutor. He replaced Aghvan Hovsepyan, who resigned after more than a decade in office. Kostanian, now 36, had previously served also as deputy minister of justice and a legal assistant to president Serzh Sargsyan.

"As a matter of fact there has been a change of generations," he said at a press conference on Wednesday.
According to him, such drastic personnel changes were prompted by new requirements for prosecutors based on professionalism, absence of corruption, dedication and no party affiliation. 

He said also that the office of prosecutor general underwent some structural changes.

"It is our deep conviction that strengthening of the control and application of new methods will reduce to  minimum illegal or not properly grounded decisions by prosecutors." -0-
