YEREVAN. – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan visited Special Investigation Service on Friday “to participate in the investigative action conducted as part of one of the criminal cases pending in the preliminary investigation body,” spokesperson of the service Marina Oghajanyan said.
She did not disclose the details of the criminal case, citing the interests of investigation, but urged the “media to refrain from deliberately misleading the public through obvious false, absurd and manipulative publications.”
Oghajanyan dismissed the reports by Hraparak.am newspaper indicating that the PM visited the Service “to encourage” the investigators amid the reports of a possible revolt within the service. The investigators are “opposing illegal actions against the chairman of the Constitutional Court and its members”, the newspaper said.
