The court hearing of ex-MP Manvel Grigoryan and his wife Nazik Amiryan continues at the Kentron Court of General Jurisdiction.
As reported earlier, on June 6, Manvel Grigoryan’s health condition sharply deteriorated at the Yerevan hospital for convicts, so he was transferred to the “Saint Gregory the Illuminator” Medical Center in Yerevan, and several days later—to “Nairi” Medical Center.
Grigoryan is charged with illegal possession of weapons and ammunition, appropriation of property, tax evasion, the squandering of state resources, and organizing of property usurpation through extortion.
In particular, he is accused of appropriating the property that was allocated to meet the needs of soldiers and volunteers who were defending the borders of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) during the four-day war in April 2016 and subsequent days.
Manvel Grigoryan is remanded in custody.
