Gagik Khachatryan`s lawyers: ECHR decision was not implemented

Gagik Khachatryan`s lawyers: ECHR decision was not implemented

ArmInfo.  On August 5, the 15-day  deadline for the execution of the decision of the European Court of  Human Rights expired, according to which the ECHR demanded that the  Armenian government provide immediate treatment to the former RA  Minister of Finance, former head of the SRC Gagik Khachatryan in a  civil hospital. This is stated in a statement by Khachatryan's team  of lawyers.

`` In fact, since July 21 of this year (when the ECHR partially  satisfied the petition of Khachatryan's lawyers regarding his  treatment - ed. note), the RA Government has not taken a single  reasonable step to provide adequate treatment in the presence of  obvious threats to the life and health of an Armenian citizen.  For  months, a team of lawyers has stated that 64-year-old Gagik  Khachatryan, who has been illegally detained for 11 months, needs  immediate surgical treatment of spinal stenosis, failure to comply  and delay in the implementation of which poses serious and  irreversible risks to his future health and life>, the statement  reads.

To note, Gagik Khachatryan is accused of large-scale embezzlement and  abuse of office. Gagik Khachatryan and his relative Karen Khachatryan  (a former employee of the State Revenue Committee) were charged under  part 2 of Article 308 of the RA Criminal Code (Embezzlement or waste  of funds on an especially large scale) and part 2 of Article 308 of  the RA Criminal Code (Abuse of official powers, resulting in grave  consequences by negligence). Earlier, the press secretary of the  Prime Minister Mane Gevorgyan wrote on Facebook that, according to  the information available to the Armenian government, Gagik  Khachatryan and his sons were in charge of the corruption, mafia  system that has been operating in Armenia for many years, as a result  of which illegal wealth has accumulated for several hundred million  dollars. It was also indicated that members of the Khachatryan family  at a meeting with various officials expressed their readiness to  return the loot.
