YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd daily of Armenia writes: The NSS [National Security Service] had informed yesterday that a decision has been made to include another official as a defendant in an apparent misuse of official powers, coupled with causing grave consequences for the state.
According to the information Zhoghovurd daily has received, this criminal case is the continuation of the criminal case initiated against Deputy Finance Minister Artur Afrikyan.
It should be reminded that Afrikyan has been charged with going beyond official powers, and he has been declared wanted. At that time the Minister of Finance was [State Revenue Committee (SRC) former chairman] Gagik Khachatryan, who is currently in custody in the basement of the NSS. And now it can be said that the NSS is on a serious trail in terms of SRC official persons and Ministry of Finance officials.
