Armenia arms supplier to be arrested
A Yerevan court on Thursday granted the National Security Service’s (NSS) petition to remand arms supplier Davit Galstyan in custody for two months, his lawyer Armen Harutyunyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
The attorney added that they consider this decision unfounded, and therefore will appeal it at the Criminal Court of Appeal.
Former Minister of Defense Davit Tonoyan and Davit Galstyan, who supplied weapons to Armenia, are charged with embezzling 2,277,323,840 drams (approx. US$4,624,380) from the state, as well as committing falsifications and publicly dangerous actions.
The NSS on Wednesday conducted searches in the homes of Davit Tonoyan, Deputy Chief of General of the Armed Forces Staff Stepan Galstyan, and former Chief of Military Aviation Avetik Muradyan. They even searched Tonoyan's mother's apartment. It is not known what the investigators expected to find in those homes months after the criminal case was initiated in the NSS. There are only rumors circulating in the press that the law enforcement officers were looking for documents and money.
Several hours ago, and according to a court decision, Davit Tonoyan was also remanded in custody for two months.
