The attorneys of Head of the State Oversight Service of the Republic of Armenia Davit Sanasaryan (his powers have been temporarily terminated-ed.) filed today an appeal to the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Armenia, reported Sanasaryan’s attorney Inesa Petrosyan to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
The attorneys demand eliminating the decision of the preliminary investigation body on engaging Sanasaryan as an accused-on-trial and on temporarily suspending his powers and demand that the Investigative Department of the National Security Service forward the case to another investigative service.
“The act inscribed to Sanasaryan is incorrect. He is innocent, and he should not be criminally prosecuted,” the attorney said.
On April 18, Davit Sanasaryan was charged with part 1 of Article 308 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia (misuse of official powers), and a signature to not leave the country was selected as a preventive measure for him.
Upon the consent of the prosecutor overseeing lawfulness of the preliminary investigation, the investigator also took a decision on temporarily terminating the powers of Head of the State Oversight Service of the Republic of Armenia Davit Sanasaryan.
Sanasaryan claims that the case is phony.
