ArmInfo. There was a terrible tragedy that shocked all of us. On January 20, in an interview with reporters, referring to the fact of the death of former Director of the National Security Service of Armenia Georgy Kutoyan, head of the "My Step" faction Lilit Makunts said. "Regarding the presence of the Prime Minister at the farewell ceremony with Kutoyan, he expressed his condolences to the family of the latter. Many high-ranking officials attended the farewell ceremony. I think that we should not focus on the fact that the Prime Minister and a number of other officials are not present at the farewell ceremony, " Makunts said.
When asked why the prime minister expressed condolences immediately after one of the publications addressed the prime minister's press service, asking why Pashinyan did not express condolences over the death of the former head of the NSS, the head of the faction said: "I don't I followed the chronology of these events, and I don't think it is very important. The fact is that the Prime Minister expressed his condolences, " Makunts said.
As for the Facebook post in which one of the users of the social network said that head of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan will be next, the MP noted: "For me, such a wording is unacceptable. Everyone is obliged to express restraint in such matters. We all have our share responsibility, is to provide an environment in which there will be a working relationship, and not insults and statements that are beyond the reasonable, " Makunts concluded.
It should be noted that on January 17, in the apartment on Paruyr Sevak Street in Yerevan, the body of the former Director of the NSS of Armenia Georgy Kutoyan was found with a gunshot wound. The body was discovered by his wife. Law enforcers found weapons and dozens of bullets and shells at the scene. A criminal case was instituted under Article 110 of the Criminal Code of Armenia (bringing to suicide), but the SC did not exclude that, as a result, the case could be qualified as murder. Everything will depend on the results of the materials collected based on the results of multiple examinations.
