Yerevan Court Drops "Illegal Enrichment" Charges Against Serzh Sargsyan's Former Security Chief
A Yerevan court has dropped all charges against Vachagan Ghazaryan, a former security staff chief of ex-Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, who had been charged with “illegal enrichment” after a June 2018 police raid of his Yerevan apartment netted AMD 35 million, US$1.1 million and €230,500 in cash.
Ghazaryan's attorney, Mher Hakobyan, relayed the news to Hetq.
Also acquitted for lack of inculpatory evidence was Ghazaryan’s wife.
Vachagan Ghazaryan also served as Deputy Chief of Armenia’s State Protection Service.
