The Special Investigation Service has initiated a criminal case under the RA Criminal Code, Article 182, part 3, point 2, Article 309, part 1 and Article 178, part 3, point 1, based on the materials prepared on citizen G.G.’s report.
Preliminary investigation has revealed that from 1997 to 2009, G.G. was owner of an open joint stock company, which owned a land area of 0,5 ha in the city of Yerevan. In 2008, an official of the RA Police repeatedly invited him to his office in the police department by abuse of official position and threatened to begin prosecution against him and his family members by ascribing crime to them unless G.G. passed his property rights to the above-mentioned land area to him. After G.G. refused to comply with the police official’s demand, different police subdivisions groundlessly started to ascribe crimes to him as well as his family members.
In order to avoid persecution G.G. temporarily donated 97 percent of his company stocks to his friend L.T. in 2009. However, when the persecution was over, L.T. refused to return the stocks, thus taking possession of 97 percent of the company’s stocks by fraud.
Preliminary investigation continues.
Notice: A person suspected or accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proved guilty in the procedure established by the Criminal Procedure Code of RA by the effective court judgement.
