YEREVAN. – The Police of Armenia have done their job in the process of extradition of Narek Sargsyan, the son of Aleksandr Sargsyan—the brother of ex-President Serzh Sargsyan—from Prague.

Armenia’s Chief of the Police Valeri Osipyan on Monday stated the aforesaid to reporters.

“The rest is not on our ‘court,’” he added.

Narek Sargsyan, against whom an international search was declared, was detained in Prague on December 6, 2018. At the moment of detection, he submitted a fake Guatemalan citizen’s passport under the name Franklin Gonzales. 

On June 26, 2018 Armenia had launched a criminal case against Narek Sargsyan on charges of illegal possession of weapons and narcotic drugs.

In addition, the National Security Service (NSS) informed that, back in 2013, Narek Sargsyan had borrowed from renowned Armenian painter Martiros Saryan’s heir 14 drawings by the artist, but then had refused to return them.

Last summer, the NSS officers found these drawings as well as $115,000, €27,000, expensive watches, and many gold coins and jewelry at the place where Narek Sargsyan was registered.

On July 6, 2018 Narek Sargsyan was declared wanted, and on July 24—internationally wanted.
