Criminal case related to ex-head of the Ministry of Defense sent to  the Investigative Committee

ArmInfo. The criminal case brought against the former head of the RA Ministry of Defense Vigen Sargsyan was sent from the prosecutor's office to the Investigative  Committee.

Previously, it became known that the criminal case was sent from the  Special Investigation Service to the prosecutor's office at the  request of the prosecutor, who carries out appropriate supervision.  According to the press service of the Prosecutor General, to continue  the preliminary investigation, the case was then sent to the  Investigative Committee, on the basis of the need for a series of  judicial and investigative actions.  Recall that Vigen Sargsyan goes  through one of the criminal cases as an accused. According to the  investigation, in January 2018, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia  carried out the distribution of apartments in a multi-storey  residential building in the Achapnyak district of Yerevan. Based on  the current order, the central housing commission of the Moscow  region should have allocated the living space, but 29 of 71  apartments were allocated not by her, but personally by the minister.

A criminal case has been instituted under Part 1 of Article 308  (Abuse of official powers) and under Part 1 of Article 309 (Excess of  official powers) of the RA Criminal Code.  The ex-minister himself  completely denies his guilt.
