ArmInfo. In 2018, a number of international organizations will assess the anti-corruption struggle of Armenia. In this regard, Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan on October 5 at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Armenia announced a number of instructions to Justice Minister David Harutyunyan and head of the government apparatus.

According to the Prime Minister, Armenia repeatedly stated its determination in the field of fighting corruption. Over the past year, a number of substantive legislative changes have been initiated and implemented by the government in this area, he said. "In 2018, a number of international organizations will evaluate the anti-corruption measures held in Armenia, in particular, in the part of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the UN," the head of government said.  In this connection Karen Karapetyan instructed the Minister of Justice David Harutyunyan to sum up the work done and submit proposals on the necessary additional measures in this direction. The head of the government apparatus was instructed to draw up a schedule of subordinate work based on the information of the Ministry of Justice. "Take under strict control the progress of the implementation of activities and periodically report to me," Karen Karapetyan said.

Earlier, on September 28, Justice Minister David Harutyunyan presented seven steps developed by the Ministry on the way to eradicating corruption in Armenia at a press conference. One of the main measures in the anti-corruption struggle was the creation of a special commission that will be engaged in checking the data on property and declarations of state officials and officials and their relatives. An important role in the anti-corruption struggle will also be played by the institution of informants and the expansion of the list of persons who are required to submit a declaration on property and income. Another effective step in the direction of fighting corruption, according to Harutyunyan, is the restriction of cash transactions by high- ranking officials. "I also consider it very important to create a developed electronic system in state structures, the presence of which will significantly reduce corruption risks," David Harutyunyan said, adding that certain steps in this direction have already been taken. "We will see the results of measures taken to combat corruption in the near future," Harutyunyan assured.
