Manvel Grigoryan will remain under arrest

ArmInfo. Criminal Court of Appeal dismissed the complaint about changing the measure of restraint against the former member of the National Assembly, the former chairman of the Yerkrapah Union of Volunteers Manvel Grigoryan, leaving the decision of arrest by the court of first instance in force.

The decision may be appealed to the Court of Cassation within 15 days from the date of publication.  Lawyers for Manvel Grigoryan argued during the court session that Grigoryan's health had deteriorated and his illnesses were incompatible with the conditions of his detention.

It should be noted that Grigoryan is accused of illegal possession of weapons and ammunition, of embezzlement and misappropriation of property on a large scale.

After the arrest Grigoryan's health deteriorated sharply, he was transferred to a civilian hospital several times. Grigoryan is now in the ''Nairi'' medical center.
