Tashir Update

An update to my previous post:

According to the newspaper “Armenian Time”, the purchaser of Inter-RAO’s Electricity Networks of Armenia (ENA) is in fact Samvel Karapetyan’s Tashir Group.

“According to the story, Samvel Karapetyan will buy 50% of the shares of the facility, while the other 50% will be distributed among three wealthy Armenian businessmen – Gagik Tsarukyan, former head of the Prosperous Armenia Party, Karen Karapetyan, former head of ArmRosgazprom gas distribution company (now Gazprom Armenia) and a former member of the National Assembly of Armenia Harutyun Pambukchyan.”

But Radio Liberty’s Armenian service reports:

“A spokeswoman for Tsarukian flatly denied, however, that he will be part of the deal.”
