YEREVAN. - Past daily of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: On September 22, Judge Tatevik Grigoryan of the Court of General Jurisdiction of Yerevan ruled in favor of the appeal filed by Artur Ghazinyan, Chairman of the [opposition] One Armenia Party, against the Special Investigation Service [(SIS)].
Ghazinyan had submitted a crime report on the occasion of [PM] Nikol Pashinyan's committing official falsification, the basis of which was that in the decision of the RA government on March 16, the day of the [COVID-19] pandemic was written as March 13 instead of March 11. The SIS had rejected the initiation of a criminal case [in this regard].
This fraud, which at first glance resembles a mistake, has a very deep political significance, as Pashinyan was continuing his election campaign two days after WHO [World Health Organization] declared a global pandemic, organizing mass gatherings of people. In order to hide this circumstance, according to the report presented by Ghazinyan, the day of announcing the pandemic was deliberately falsified in the decision of the RA government.
In fact, on the basis of a court decision, a criminal case will be filed against Nikol Pashinyan for committing official fraud. Within the framework of the criminal case, it already will become clear who, besides Nikol Pashinyan, will be involved in this case.
