The preliminary investigation of the criminal case investigated in regard to the incident of embezzlement of a large amount of money by means of appropriation by an official is over at RA Special Investigation Service. As a result, it has been ascertained that RA MJ JAE Service official received a large amount of money subject to confiscation from the debtor Armen Kocharyan by the executory process initiated by him, which, using his official position, he appropriated and spent for personal needs.
In particular, the JAE Service compulsory executor Grigor Sargsyan, within the framework of the executory process initiated by him, received in parts 3500 US dollars from 7000 dollars subject to arrest from the Yerevan resident Armen Kocharyan during the years 2012-2013, as well as 150 US dollars stipulated for state duty and the expense of executory actions’ fulfilment.
