ArmInfo.  The court of general  jurisdiction will again consider the issue of the arrest of the head  of the Prosperous Armenia Party Gagik Tsarukyan. Tsarukyan"s lawyer  Smbat Minasyan told this in an interview with ArmInfo correspondent.

The lawyer emphasized that the decision was made by the Criminal  Appeal Court, chaired by Judge Mkhitar Papoyan. He also emphasized  that, in fact, the court did not satisfy the prosecution's request  for the arrest of Tsarukyan. ,  Minasyan concluded.  It should be noted that the prosecutor's office  appealed in the Court of Appeal the decision of the trial court to  refuse to applyarrest as a measure of restraint against Tsarukyan.

To recall, Tsarukyan was charged in three criminal cases. According  to the investigation, the leadership and other members of the  Prosperous Armenia party, in accordance with well-developed schemes,  distributed hundreds of millions of drams of election bribes in 2017,  and this was done under the pretext of charity. In another case,  Tsarukyan's companies were involved in the organization of the  casino's illegal activities, resulting in damage to the state of $ 60  million. Another criminal case concerns a company associated with  Tsarukyan, which illegally appropriated land, and the state suffered  damage of 342 million drams (about 685 thousand dollars).
