Mihran Poghosyan's Office Claims Armed NSS Agents Forced Their Way Into His Home Today
The office of Mihran Poghosyan, a former Chief Compulsory Enforcement Officer (CCEO) of Armenia recently charged with embezzlement and abuse of official authority, has released a statement claiming that armed members of the National Security Service forced their way into Poghosyan’s home today and conducted a search.
The statement describes what happened as “politically motivated and repressive”.
Armenia’s Special Investigative Service, in a statement released on April 15, charged Poghosyan with embezzlement and fraud totaling close to AMD100 million
Poghosyan is best known for his shady offshore financial dealings as first reported by Hetq in April 2016 after the release of the Panama Papers.
Yerevan’s Court of General Jurisdiction has approved a motion filed by Armenia’s Special Investigative Service (SIS) to issue an arrest warrant for Poghosyan, who is believed to be in Moscow.
