It should be noted that the National Security Service applied for an  extension of the detention of Karen Khachatryan for another two  months, while the defender of Khachatryan requested for his release  on bail.

<The court decision was a bit late, but was fair. We do not focus  only on bad events, we are also talking about good ones. In fact, the  court made a lawful and bold decision>, the lawyer said. Makinyan  noted that there was no reason to keep Khachatryan in custody>.  <Karen Khachatryan was detained for 5 months.  Starting from the  first day, we presented all the evidence that there is no reason for  his detention>, the lawyer said.

To recall, Karen Khachatryan held the post of head of the Department  of Internal Security of the SRC and is accused of squandering on a  large scale. In the same criminal case, charges were brought against  his uncle Gagik Khachatryan. The petition to change the measure of  restraint of the latter is now being considered by the court. Gagik  Khachatryan and Karen Khachatryan are charged under the second part  of Article 308 of the RA Criminal Code and the first paragraph of the  third part of Article 179.
