ArmInfo. Owner of "Flash" LLC Barsegh Beglaryan considers new charges against him false. Yesterday, he was charged under clause 1 of part 3 of article 38-179 of the RA Criminal Code in the same criminal case in which the third president of the RA Serzh Sargsyan is being charged.
In a conversation with reporters on December 6, Beglaryan noted that he considers the allegations false. He also informed that a month and a half ago, during interrogation, he had a confrontation with former Minister of Agriculture Sergo Karapetyan, whose name is also exaggerated in connection with the aforementioned criminal case. Beglaryan did not begin to tell other details, noting only that he had no meetings with Sargsyan on this issue.
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. To recall , in 2018, Barsegh Beglaryan was charged with arbitrariness committed with the use of violence or with the threat of its use.
As a result of investigative and operational-search measures in the framework of the criminal case, it turned out that the founders of Flash and Flash Motors and other company officials, among others, also accused the extra-commercial director of Flash Motors LLC of embezzlement on an especially large scale and demanded to restore the alleged property damage. Under the influence of threats and acts of violence, the latter, having no other choice, in April 2016 mortgaged his apartment, and transferred the amount of the pledge in the amount of 9.700.000 drams to the company. The next court hearing on this case was held on December 6.
