YEREVAN. - State Budget of Armenia for 2012 will not allocate any amount for housing of the orphanage graduates, said the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Arthur Grigoryan to a joint sitting of Parliament standing committees on Monday.
The Government ignored this point in the Budget for 2011 as well, however around 300 apartments were provided to orphanage graduates in Armenia in 2003-2010.
‘‘At least 28 apartments do not serve their purpose; they are either desolated or given for rent,’’ said Grigoryan.
According to him the question of the 28 controversial apartments is studied togather with Armenian Relief Society. At least 15 of them will be expropriated and allocated to new people. Around 300 orphanage graduates are on the apartment waiting list
