Arayik Harutyunyan: There has been no political persecution under the  current authorities and there will not be any

ArmInfo.Under the current authorities, there has been no political persecution, and never will be. On December 5, RA Minister of Education, Science, Culture and  Sports Arayik Harutyunyan stated this to journalists, commenting on  the criminal case against the former president of Armenia Serzh  Sargsyan.

"There is full confidence in law enforcement agencies, unlike the  members of the Republican Party of Armenia and the statements they  distribute. Under the current authorities, there has been no  political persecution in the country, and there will not be any", the  minister stressed.

The third president of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, is accused of  organizing embezzlement on an especially large scale - about 500  million drams. So, according to the report of the Special  Investigative Service of the Republic of Armenia, during the  investigative measures within the framework of the criminal case  under investigation, and when summing up the sufficient evidence  obtained, Serzh Sargsyan was charged on the grounds of clause 1 part  3 of Art. 38-179 of the Criminal Code of RA - an act dangerous to  society. As a measure of restraint a recognizance not to leave the  place was taken from Sargsyan. Investigative measures in the  framework of the criminal case are ongoing.
