ArmInfo.The defense of Serzh Sargsyan appealed against the decision of the Special Investigation Service on his criminal prosecution. The General Prosecutor's Office of Armenia received a corresponding complaint.
Third President of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, is accused of organizing embezzlement on an especially large scale - about 500 million drams. Serzh Sargsyan was charged on the grounds of clause 1 of part 3 of Art. 38-179 of the Criminal Code of RA - an act dangerous to society.
We are talking about the state program approved in 2013 by the Government on more affordable acquisition of diesel fuel for spring agricultural work. According to the investigation, Sargsyan, having exceeded his official authority, facilitated the purchase of diesel fuel from Flash Ltd at higher prices.
As a preventive measure, a recognizance not to leave was taken from Sargsyan. Investigative measures in the framework of the criminal case are ongoing.
