The court hearing of the criminal case against former Armenian Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Artak Davtyan, former Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Stepan Galstyan, arms supplier Davit Galstyan, and several others started Wednesday in Yerevan.

The investigation of the criminal case investigated by the National Security Service had found out that several high-ranking officials of the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defense of Armenia had abused their respective power in 2018 and unlawfully purchased a total of 4,232 obsolete weapons that were stored at the Ministry of Defense.

It was also found out that the abovementioned persons had matched up the technical features of this ammunition with the given type of product stored in the Ministry of Defense, and noted false data in them.

At the same time, the said weapons were purchased at a price almost twice as much as the previous purchase of ammunition of the same batch, thus committing embezzlement of 4,655,200 US dollars.

The aforementioned high-ranking former and current officials do not accept this charge and consider it a fake criminal case.
