ARARAT. - Martik Melkonyan, a resident of Ararat Region's Aygavan
village, has 11 minor children and is in hard social conditions. He
had turned to the President to receive a home last year. In response,
the President met with the Ararat Governor and as a result, the Fuler
Company was assigned to build the house. The company made investments
amounting to AMD 3,100,000 and the Governor should have co-invested
the 10 percent of it. But he has only granted AMD 50,000 ($170),
the father of the big family told Armenian News-NEWS.am. The reason
was lack of resources and the Governor has not yet paid.

Being in a difficult situation, Melkonyan turned to the Ombudsman Karen
Andreasyan. The latter asked the Governor to provide the documents
on the case, while the Governor claims there was no agreement between
him and Melkonyan on co-financing.

The Ombudsman tried to find out whether there was anyway an agreement
with the company that the Governor has to pay the ten percent, but
the company said that usually the community co-finances such projects.

Anyway, the family is not provided with any funds. The case continues
to be in the focus of the Ombudsman.
