ArmInfo. On January 21, a courtof general jurisdiction rejected Manvel Grigoryan's defense motionon the treatment of former MP in France.
The court justified this by the fact that there was no evidence that the appropriate treatment cannot be organized in the medical centers operating in the territory of Armenia. We add that, presenting the petition, lawyer of the former MP Levon Baghdasaryan stated that the family of the defendant is ready to bear all the costs of treatment in France.
To recall, earlier Grigoryan was hospitalized at the Nairi MC, and subsequently, by a court decision, the preventive measure against him was changed from arrest to recognizance not to leave.
Meanwhile, according to the conclusion of the interdepartmental commission established to conduct a forensic medical examination of Grigoryan, the accused's illness and complications do not correspond to the list of serious diseases approved by the Government. In addition, based on the conclusion, he can receive treatment in one of the hospitals in Armenia. Manvel Grigoryan is accused of illegal possession of weapons and ammunition, appropriation of property in the amount of 101.2 million drams, tax evasion in the amount of 1.2 billion drams, embezzlement of state funds of 1.2 billion drams, and appropriation of property by extortion in the amount of 37 million drams.
