Within the framework of the criminal case, assessment will also be given to the conduct of First Deputy Head of the PI Arman Ayvazyan if “factual data are obtained in regard to him committing the alleged crime.”
We have been informed of this through the response of the RA General Prosecutor’s Office that was issued on January 25, 2018 in regard to the crime report submitted by HCA Vanadzor.

In response to the convicts’ complaints, he said, “Even if 10 people die, lower your tone and stand still when you see me.”
