Serzh Sargsyan`s lawyers` complaint rejected

ArmInfo. The complaint of the defense side of the former president of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan regarding the decision to prosecute him in a criminal case under  investigation by the RA Special Investigation Service, was rejected.  According to information provided by the press service of the  Prosecutor General, the complaint was rejected in connection with its  groundlessness.

The 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.

The matter concerns 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.

A recognizance not to leave the place was taken from Sargsyan as a  measure of restraint. Investigative measures in the framework of the  criminal case are ongoing.
