AKHALAKALAKI, February 25 (Noyan Tapan).-A-Info. The anti-corruption program, which began in Tbilisi, strikes root in the regions as well. In the regions the arrests of state high-ranking officials, representatives of economic magnates are followed by the arrests of local officials. This takes place in Javakhk as well.
Derenik Durgarian, the Head of the regional Social Security Department, was arrested in the Ninotsminda region. He is accused of bribery and misappropriation of the social aid given to the region. It isn't excluded that head physician of the regional hospital Poghosian will be arrested as well on the accusation of bribery.
In the Akhalkalaki region as well the local government carries out pressure towards more than 15 officials and warns them about the possible dismissing and arrests. But here the opposition explains this as a result of the display of revanchism.
