In this regard, the Prosecutor General of Armenia  invited the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation to provide  clear information "on the reasons for rejecting the application for  the extradition of M.  Poghosyan," Khachatryan noted.

It should be noted that on April 21 of this year it became known that  Mihran Poghosyan, the former head of the Judicial Acts Compulsory  Enforcement Service, who was put on the wanted list, was detained in  Karelia (RF).

The Prosecutor General of Armenia sent the relevant documents to the  competent authorities of the Russian Federation for his extradition.
