Armenia’s Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer resigns after Panama Papers publications

Armenia’s Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer Mihran Poghosyan has resigned. The Compulsory Enforcement Service has issued the following statement:

“My name has recently surfaced in the publications on Panama offshores.

I regret that my name appeared along with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev’s family, which has really appropriated millions of dollars.

I find it unacceptable that I might serve a reason for any civilizational parallels between my country and authoritarian Azerbaijan. That’s why I have filed my resignation today.

I’ll publicly respond to the publications of the Panama Papers without any state levers at my disposal.”
