Pashinyan was charged two hours to disarm the guards of oligarchs and officials

Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan called the conspiracy publication of the record of conversation of heads of special services in which they are discussing resonant criminal cases, in particular, interrogation of the former President Robert Kocharian. This is the Agency “Novosti-Armenia”.


“The wire of the heads of intelligence is a conspiracy, a crime against Armenian statehood. I instructed the national security Service and police in the shortest time to find the conspirators and to expose them to the most severe responsibility,” he said.

The Prime Minister also ordered to conduct raids against the security of the oligarchs and high-ranking officials.

“So-called security guards to put on the ground and to disarm everyone. Two hours later, the head of the NSC Arthur Venecian and the chief of police Valery Osipyan must report to me on progress and achieved results”, — he added, promising to “re-wear camouflage” in case of non-execution of the order.

In late July, Kocharian accused of overthrow of the constitutional order during the events of 1-2 March 2008. Then Kocharian imposed a state of emergency to disperse out in the streets of the opposition — supporters of Armenia’s first President Levon Ter-Petrosyan, who took part in the 2008 elections, but lost.

Ter-Petrosian and his supporters demanded a recount. The rallies escalated into riots that were suppressed by the authorities. Among the dead were supporters of opposition and law enforcement officials.
