A Yerevan court upheld the motion to reestablish the pretrial detention of former MP Levon Sargsyan. Gor Abrahamyan, Adviser to the Prosecutor General, informed Armenian News-NEWS.am about this.
To note, on March 20, Russia had granted the Armenian side's petition to extradite Sargsyan to the Armenian law enforcement agencies, and the extradition took place on August 6.
In November, Levon Sargsyan, 51, was found and detained in Zelenograd, Russia.
He has been wanted by the Armenian law enforcement since October 2018.
Levon Sargsyan is charged with ordering the robbery attack on the house of Armen Avetisyan, former Head of State Customs Committee of Armenia, 11 years ago.
