YEREVAN. – The court hearing on the case of Hayk Sargsyan, the nephew of Armenia’s third President Serzh Sargsyan, resumed today at a Yerevan court of general jurisdiction.
At this hearing, the evidence in the case will be examined, and then the witnesses will be questioned.
The pistol, which is the material evidence in the case, was examined at the previous trial.
Hayk Sargsyan is charged with a crime committed 11 years ago—for attempted murder, and illegal possession of weapons and ammunition.
On September 10, 2018, the Yerevan court of general jurisdiction granted the motion of Hayk Sargsyan's lawyer and ruled that Sargsyan be released on a 50mn dram bail. After posting bail, Hayk Sargsyan was released from prison.
