Director of Multi Group Concern LLC Sedrak Arustamyan hasn’t been interviewed about the hundreds of alleged cases of giving bribes to voters and receiving bribes during the 2017 parliamentary elections, as Arustamyan’s attorney Hovik Sukiasyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“I understood that the case concerned Arustamyan when I read the petition of the Prosecutor General, but Arustamyan hasn’t been interviewed,” he said.
On June 14, the National Security Service issued a press release regarding the hundreds of alleged cases of giving bribes to voters and receiving bribes during the elections of the National Assembly of Armenia held on April 2, 2017. Nearly four dozens of searches have been conducted within the scope of the instituted criminal case, during which typed and handwritten documents containing detailed notes concerning the movement of funds given during the elections, were seized.
Prosperous Armenia Party leader Gagik Tsarukyan, who was stripped of parliamentary immunity by the National Assembly of Armenia, has been involved as an accused-on-trial.
Yesterday, the court denied the petition of the investigator of the National Security Service to arrest Tsarukyan.
