Sergey Smbatyan suspended

Sergey Smbatyan, the principal conductor of the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, and his father have been detained and accused of participating in a massive fraud scheme in a shocking turn of events. The General Prosecutor’s Office claims that Smbatyan’s acts cost the state an astounding one billion drams in losses. The Yerevan Tchaikovsky Music School’s 300-square-meter plot, which belonged to the school, was stolen, causing the loss.

The lawsuit centers on the “Sochocenter” business, which suggested building a multipurpose complex dubbed “Book World” in recognition of the 500th anniversary of Armenian printing and Yerevan’s 2012 designation as the global capital of books. The business has volunteered to provide funding for the construction of the Tchaikovsky School’s new performance hall and boiler house. However, the corporation decided to build a 17-story business center in the city’s center instead of carrying out the suggested project, costing about 170 million dollars. In 2012, the government granted them permission to erect the building. The Smbatyan family was accused of plundering the land by law enforcement as a result of this claimed divergence from the original project.
