ArmInfo. Sipan Pashinyan, a deputy of the parliamentary faction My Step, sued the son-in-law of ex-President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan - Mikael Minasyan. This is reported by the Judicial Information System DataLex.
The deputy demands to publicly refute the statement, which is defamatory, as well as to compensate for damage to honor, dignity and business reputation. The lawsuit was filed on June 5; the amount of moral damage is 2 million drams.
The reason for the lawsuit was Minasyan's statement about the deputy's alleged participation in cigarette smuggling. Recall that on April 29, the Boylernaya telegram channel reported that they tried to smuggle a batch of Armenian cigarettes of various brands with a tonnage of 40 tons or 2700 boxes through Krasnodar. According to the report, the market value of the cargo is more than 300 million rubles. <A plane flying out of Yerevan with stops in Krasnodar and then to Dushanbe was heading to Afghanistan>,- it was said in the source. The wanted son-in-law of the third president of Armenia, Mikael Minasyan, did not fail to accuse the family of Prime Minister Pashinyan of smuggling. In this regard, the prime minister's brother-in-law, a deputy from the "My Step" faction, Hrachya Hakobyan has already filed a lawsuit in court. For his part, the Prime Minister said that he was glad that a trial would take place, during which it would become obvious to everyone who was right and who was to blame. <The State Revenue Committee of Armenia did not commit any violations. Exporters are to blame, who were going to export goods to some country, but then changed their minds and changed course. Law enforcement agencies should also be aware of this issue, "Pashinyan said earlier.
