The head of the parliamentary group of the Republican Party of
Armenia Galust Sahakyan says that before accusing Mayor of Yerevan
Taron Margaryan of corruption some members of the Armenian National
Congress better remember the times when they were in power as part
of the Armenian National Movement.

"Having come into power with just slippers on their feet, they very
quickly got rich at the expense of the country and now they are trying
to shift responsibility onto people like Margaryan," Sahakyan said.

He said that the huge incomes declared by the mayor are the result
of his hard work. "He did not mention the sources because they are
not registered to his name but he specified how much he has earned
from those businesses," Sahakyan said.

The opposition's charge followed Margaryan's property declaration
saying that he has a capital of $6mln though his monthly wage is just
130,000 AMD.
