In case there are grounds prescribed by law, a compulsory enforcement officer has the right to levy execution upon the salary of a debtor and the fees equalled thereto, the funded and voluntary funded pensions of the debtor, the scholarship of the debtor and remunerations received through the use of objects of intellectual property, as well as the state pensions of the debtor, but upon a certain percentage of them, not the whole amount. In particular:

–      up to 75% may be deducted from the salary and fees equalled thereto, funded pensions and voluntary funded pensions, a scholarship and remunerations received through the use of objects of intellectual property, if they are levied in execution with the view to paying alimony or compensating for damage caused to health, damage caused by loss of breadwinner or damage caused by crime;

–      up to 50% may be deducted from incomes specified for the purpose of meeting other requirements;

–      up to 30% may be deducted from the state pensions of a debtor.

When imposing an attachment on the bank accounts of a debtor, the compulsory enforcement officer does not have information on whether the debtor receives salary or other incomes on those accounts or not. Thus, if attachment has been imposed on the salary or other incomes of a citizen in full, in order to fully or partially eliminate the attachment imposed thereon, it is necessary to submit to the compulsory enforcement officer a statement of information from the workplace (or other income payer) stating also the amount of salary (income), the bank through which the salary (income) is received and the account number (account number of employer or other income payer) from which the salary or other income is transferred.

The most common questions concerning the functions of the Penitentiary Service are listed in this section. Dear visitors, you may leave your evaluation of the response to the given question and/or your question requiring additional clarification.

All penitentiary institutions grant lengthy visits, while short visits are granted and conducted on working days from 10:00 to 17:00. At least one short visit per month, for up to four hours, is granted to close relatives or others. At least one lengthy visit is granted every two months — for up to three days — with the right to stay together and for meeting close relatives only. A lengthy visit is also granted for meeting the person not married to the convict but having a common child with the convict.

At least three short visits and one lengthy visit per year are granted to persons sentenced to imprisonment for a certain period or to life imprisonment for having committed a particularly grave crime. This restriction is eliminated, if the convict has actually served the punishment — the term set for granting release on parole, according to the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia.

A necessary condition for granting a visit to a detained person or convict is the consent of the detained person or convict and the identification document, attached to the application, of the person having requested the visit, and for a lengthy visit — also proof of the right to reside with him or her in the past, as well as the existence of documents attesting to the blood relationship or kinship of the detained person or convict with the child.

Maximum three adults and five minors are allowed to pay a visit at the same time with a detained person. A convict serving his or her sentence in a closed, semi-closed or semi-open institution may be allowed to pay a visit at the same time with not more than three adults in case of a short visit, and in case of a lengthy visit — with not more than two adults, who may be accompanied by minor siblings, children and grandchildren of the convict.

The administration of an institution records the deliveries.

Parcels, deliveries and packages are opened, and the ingredients thereof are examined by the officer of the institution in the presence of the person who has brought them. During examination, the types and quantity of the objects and foodstuffs existing in the parcel, delivery or package are compared with the types and quantity specified in the application form.

A detained person and convict are allowed to maintain correspondence at their expense, without restriction on letters sent and received.

Correspondence is carried out through the administration of an institution and is subject to external examination, without examining the contents of the correspondence, in order to rule out the transfer of prohibited objects or substances. Letters received for convicts, while they are absent, are forwarded to their new place. The letters in the name of a detained person or convict are received and the letter of a detained person or convict is sent to the addressee by the administration of a remind facility or correctional institution not later than within 3 working days from the day of receiving or submitting the letter for sending.

The detained person or convict may, at his or her expense, use a telephone installed within a remand facility or in the premises of a correctional institution, respectively. A detained person is given the opportunity to use telephone communication in case of absence of an attachment from a body implementing criminal proceedings.

Telephone communication is organised through telephone junction boxes with cards; the detained person or convict may obtain the cards for those boxes from the kiosk or store of the remand facility or correctional institution or receive them as deliveries or in a parcel.

In the interests of examination, telephone conversations of detained persons may be prohibited upon the decision of the body implementing criminal proceedings.

The duration of use of telephone communication may not exceed 15 minutes in each case.

Using telephone communication is not permitted at night hours.

Convicts, with the exception of those convicted for particularly dangerous repeat offences or particularly grave crimes, may be granted short term leaves in exceptional personal situations (such as the death or serious life-threatening disease of close relatives, or a natural disaster that has caused considerable material damage upon the convict or his or her family) or for purposes of social rehabilitation.
