ArmInfo. The accused in the case of usurpation of power Arsen Babayan was released. This information was confirmed by the head of the Public Relations Department of the Criminal Executive Department of the RA Ministry of Justice Nona Navikyan.
Recall that today it was decided to change the preventive measure of Arsen Babayan from arrest to personal guarantee. As Advisor to the RA Prosecutor General Gor Abrahamyan reported, it was taken into account in particular that the main part of the necessary investigative measures was carried out with respect to Babayan. This, for its part, reduced the risk of a possible impediment to the investigation by third parties. In addition, earlier it was reported that the head of the Helsinki Committee of Armenia Avetik Ishkhanyan and deputy Misak Gabrielyan were ready to act as guarantors, having paid 500 thousand drams each.
Arsen Babayan was charged under part 1 of article 38-300 (complicity in usurping state power) and part 1 of article 314 (official forgery) of the Armenian Criminal Code. In this case, ex-Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia Ara Babloyan is also accused.
