The Russian Prosecutor General's Office has granted the petition by the Prosecutor General's Office of Armenia to hand wanted ex-MP Levon Sargsyan over to Armenia’s law enforcement to prosecute. Gor Abrahamyan, Adviser to the Prosecutor General of Armenia, informed about this on Facebook.
He added that the relevant Russian authorities were instructed to hand Sargsyan over to the relevant Armenian authorities once the decision on his extradition came into legal force.
"In this regard, the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Armenia has instructed the Police of the Republic of Armenia to organize L. Sargsyan's transfer [to Armenia], ”Abrahamyan also noted.
Levon Sargsyan is accused in Armenia of ordering the robbery attack, about 12 years ago, on the house of Armen Avetisyan, now ex-head of the Customs Committee.
