YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: According to our information, the investigation into the cases of illegal adoption [of Armenia’s children by foreigners] has reached a dead end, insufficient evidence is obtained. However, since the Prime Minister personally spoke about it at the government meeting, the collapse of the case would mean that [PM Nikol] Pashinyan made another unproven statement.
At the same time, one of the motives for initiating this case was to obtain evidence against Mikael Minasyan. The incumbent government has thought that since most of the adopters are from Italy, then it is possible that the former Armenian ambassador to the Vatican played a role, and [therefore] an instruction has been given to obtain evidence at all costs about his complicity, but the NSS [National Security Service] is unable to find any facts.
