The committee experts found that the invoices submitted contained false data, and supermarkets were in some cases involved in such wrongdoings.
At the committee's meeting on Monday, one of the company's representatives – Manase Yepremyan – attempted to argue the data, but committee chair Artak Shaboyan made a rough remark, asking him not to distort figures. He said the company's usual customers could not acquire eggs from supermarkets ahead of the New Year, the reason being the "egg deficit".
"The way you realized your eggs is unknown," Shaboyan said, adding that the supermarkets faced egg shortage on those days, while some shops sold eggs for a higher price.
He further asked the committee member to provide documentary evidence to Manasyan and said the company had sold eggs to unknown customers at higher prices in an attempt to gain extra profits.
