On Monday, a person called the operational control center of the Police of Armenia and the 911 emergency hotline and stated that within 25 minutes he was going to blow up the National Assembly building, and that he will blow up the national inspectorate and the Gyumri revenue office buildings as well, reports the Prosecutor General's Office.
In addition, on Tuesday, the person again informed the operational control center of the Police of Armenia and the 911 emergency hotline from the same phone number that he had planted five explosive devices near the Gyumri revenue office building, and if they did not approach him in 20 minutes, he would blow himself up—along with the building.
But it turned out that the aforesaid threats were false.
Criminal proceedings have been launched into these two cases, and they have been joined.
It was found that the person who made these false threats is Gyumri resident J. S., and he was detained Tuesday evening.
On Wednesday, a decision was made to open a criminal case against J. S. for the fact that he had reported false information about terrorism, as a result of which an atmosphere of terror was created, a panic arose, which disrupted the activities of the Shirak provincial department of the State Revenue Committee for a long time.
And on Thursday, the court granted the request to remand J. S. in custody.
