ArmInfo.Head of the Tashir group of companies, Samvel Karapetyan, refused to testify in the case of his nephew, Narek Karapetyan.  According to the press service of  the Investigative Committee of Armenia, he had previously been  notified of the call for interrogation, but Samvel Karapetyan, who  was in Russia, said he wanted to use his constitutional right and  refused to testify.

According to the press  service of the IC, the law enforcement authorities received a signal  from the hospital on July 4 that a man (born in 1989) with numerous  bruises and scratches came to them for medical care. He stated that  on July 3, at 7:30 p.m., Karapetyan and his entourage used force  against him, after which on July 4, Karapetyan and ten other persons  beat him and a friend, extorting a large sum of money from him.

During the investigative actions, it was found that on July 3,  Karapepyan and his friend, threatening and using force against  Parazyan, tried to get a large sum of money from the latter. After  which Karapetyan again met Parazyan and again demanded money from  him. However, he did not achieve anything. Enraged, Karapetyan  invited Parazyan to a restaurant, threatened him with violence  against his family members, demanded money, and without receiving it,  he beat the victim together with other persons.

Narek Karapetyan was charged under paragraph 2 of paragraph 3 of part  182 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia (extortion on an  especially large scale). A recognizance not to leave was chosen as a  preventive measure.
