ArmInfo. A circle of customers and executors of telephone wiretapping of the Director of the National Security Service (NSS) and the Chairman of the Special Investigation Service of the Republic of Armenia has been established. Today, methods and ways of interception are being clarified. Director of the National Security Service Arthur Vanetsian said this on October 16 in an interview with journalists.
The customer, according to Vanetsian, is from Armenia. However, he refrained from naming names, only noting that the NSS was not involved in wiretapping, and the customer was "widely known" to the public. "There is only one customer, but it is extremely difficult to document the participation of this customer, and at this stage it will not work," said Vanetsian. Nevertheless, Arthur Vanetsian somewhat opened the brackets. According to him, they managed to listen to the conversation due to the fact that he was roaming at that moment. In this mode, as he pointed out, operators, in order to make a call cheaper, use Internet services, the so-called IP telephony, which reduces the security of the network. "I was roaming, and the Internet connection was not protected, that is, any mediocre expert could perform wiretapping," said Vanietcian.
As he said as a result of the investigative activities of the Investigative Committee, it turned out that he and Sasun Khachatryan had 10 telephone conversations on that day. "He called me 8 times, I called him 2 times. We had more than one conversation with him, which lasted 8 minutes and 40 seconds. Our longest conversation lasted 2,5 minutes, these conversations are completely mounted and presented as one conversation. As for my famous statement "wants, does not want, must give," I also want to explain this. It is already known that the judge is Vache Margaryan, I call him Hrach. I speak Hrach, referring to the head of the investigative team of the Special Investigation Service. His name is Hrach, I don't know his last name, because I don't even know him, during the press, this guy was sitting next to us. I say to Sasun Khachatryan, "What does Hrach say?", he replies: "Hrach speaks, reasonably," but I say: "So he wants, does not want, must give," said Arthur Vanetsyan .
At the same time, as stated by Vanetsian, he is completely open for investigation. He provided his own phone to the investigating authority, even acquainted him with the correspondence with his wife, and provided information on cash transfers on his personal bank card, which he could not do.
The head of the National Security Council stressed that there was no conversation between him and the judge. <I'm not afraid, I don't hide it, I didn't talk to the judge. I did not speak with the judge, I did not speak with the judges at all. I have friends of the judge with whom I can talk about everyday problems, "said Vanetsian. According to him, the purpose of the wiretapping was his resignation.
On September 11, a recorded telephone conversation appeared on the network between the director of the National Security Service of Armenia Artur Vanetsyan and the head of the Special Investigation Service Sasun Khachatryan. In fact, the "wiretapping" was initiated two cases under the articles "violation of the secrecy of correspondence, telephone conversations, postal, telegraph or other messages" and "unlawful acquisition of computer information in order to obtain information of particular value", as well as "abuse of office".
