PanARMENIAN.Net - According to Aravot daily, the head of Gyumri-based Asparez journalist club Levon Barsegyan requested Gyumri Mayor's Office to provide him with phone bills for the last 6 years.

As Barsegyan revealed later, for 6 years, the Mayor's Office had been paying an annual sum of $30-40 thousand without asking to see the bills. He further suggested that the new Mayor Levon Barsegyan, as an authorized person, request the bills from ArmenTell phone company.

According to a document provided by the Mayor's office, AMD 10,5 mln; AMD 11,5 mln and AMD 13,5 mln was paid for phone connection in 2010, 2011, and 2012 respectively.

“Turns out, lots of phone conversations were held at the expense of Gyumri citizens while Vardan Ghukasyan was in office,” the daily said.
