ArmInfo.The place from which the wiretapping of Director of the National Security Service (NSS) of the Republic of Armenia Artur Vanetsyan (now the former Director of the National Security Service - Ed. note) and Head of the Special Investigation Service (SIS) Sasun Khachatryan conversation was distributed is known. On October 21, Chairman of the RA Investigative Committee Hayk Grigoryan stated this in an interview with reporters.
According to him, for each specific case, including the fact of wiretapping, an objective, comprehensive investigation is being conducted, regardless of position and position. "However, based on the secrecy of the investigation, I can't tell everything, I can only say that a number of circumstances have been identified, including the place from which the telephone conversation was distributed," Hayk Grigoryan emphasized
It should be noted that on September 11 last year, the wiretapping of Director of the National Security Service, Artur Vanetsyan, and Head of the Special Investigation Service, Sasun Khachatryan conversation was held. Vanetsyan and Khachatryan during the 8-minute conversation, discussed the arrest of former President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan, as well as criminal cases against the Secretary General CSTO Yuri Khachaturov and former Minister of Defense Mikael Harutyunyan. All three are accused of overthrowing the constitutional order during the post-election events of 2008, which resulted in the death of 10 people. Vanetsyan told the head of the SIS about the conversation with the judge, who had already been given "instructions" at all costs to imprison Kocharyan. Then they started talk about Khachaturov. The director of the National Security Service said that the CSTO Secretary General should never be touched, since there is a danger of spoiling relations with Russia. Another wiretapping, already between Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and Director of the National Security Service of Armenia Artur Vanetsyan, was held on December 5. During the conversation, Pashinyan and Vanetsyan discuss the arrest of the now retired CSTO Secretary General Yuri Khachaturov, the possible consequences of this step. Vanetsyan, in particular, said that Khachaturov's arrest could "complicate relations with the Russians" and that representatives of the FSS of Russia expressed concern to him.
