YEREVAN. – The law enforcement system of Armenia continues to discuss options for the possible dissolution of the Special Investigation Service (SIS), Zhoghovurd (People) newspaper reported.
“Zhoghovurd daily learned that the SIS will be reformed, all the [SIS] bodies—departments—dealing with corruption matters will be closed, and they will be assembled in one place and in one structure, and which will be the future SIS.
