ArmInfo. Information that the Chief of the Police Valery Osipyan, following the head of the NSS, also submitted his resignation to the Prime Minister, has not been officially confirmed.
However, as ArmInfo learned, at the yesterday meeting of the Security Council, Pashinyan demanded that the Chief of the Police be more responsive in disclosing corruption cases of the previous government and more rigidity in their attitude. As the sources inform, Pashinyan got the impression that the Police, in terms of personnel and professionalism, are not able to meet the demand of the new political leadership of the country. Apparently, the application has been submitted, but has not been signed yet. The source notes that Pashinyan also put forward a demand regarding the work of the NSS. The cup of patience was overflowed after the emergence of information about the presence of "controversial cases" and, possibly, even frauds, in which close family members of already former head of the NSS Artur Vanetsyan were previously involved.
According to independent observers, the fact that high-profile cases, which Vanetsyan and Osipyan reported, do not find a logical conclusion until now, greatly irritate the public and significantly affect the rating of the leader of the "velvet revolution". According to observers, the fact that in such a highly corrupt structure as the Police, after the revolution, there were no serious personnel changes and "new blood" injections, seriously affected the level of internal resistance of this structure to reforms and goals.
