Armenian Court of Appeal returns nephew of former head of SRC to jail

ArmInfo.The Court of Appeal of Armenia canceled the decision of the primary court of  February 22 on replacing the arrest of the accused Karen Khachatryan  with a bail of 20 million drams. This is stated in the message of the  National Security Service of the Republic of Armenia received by  ArmInfo.

According to the source, the NSS, based on the public interest in the  investigative measures against the former head of the Ministry of  Finance and the State Revenue Committee, Gagik Khachatryan and  related parties, reports that the Court of Appeal found the decision  of the primary court unacceptable. Karen Khachatryan is currently in  custody. A preliminary investigation is ongoing.

To recall, the nephew of the former head of the SRC Gagik  Khachatryan, Karen Khachatryan, was released on bail in the amount of  20 million drams by a court decision of February 22. The National  Security Service of Armenia submitted a request to extend the arrest  term of Khachatryan by two months, and Khachatryan's lawyer requested  his release on bail.

In the framework of the same  criminal case, his uncle, the former chairman of the SRC, former  finance minister Gagik Khachatryan, was charged.
