The Government of Armenia will consider the dismissal of Vahagn Vermishyan from the post of chairman of the Urban Development Committee (the draft decision on the issue is on the agenda for the February 27 session of the Government).
Vahagn Vermishyan is under arrest for receiving a bribe in a particularly large amount.
As reported earlier, chairman of the Urban Development Committee Vahagn Vermishyan doesn’t accept the charge brought against him, and his attorney has filed an appeal against the decision on arrest to the Criminal Court of Appeal.
Six others are also charged under the criminal case regarding the bribe.
Based on a court decision, two-month arrest has been applied as a pre-trial measure for three of them. Former head of the Yerevan Investigation Department Jon Farkhoyan is also under this case, and pledge was selected as an alternative pre-trial measure for him.
