Court Issues Lengthy Sentences to Two Charged in Armenia's Largest Drug Bust

Armenia's Syunik Provincial Court today sentenced two men accused in Armenia’s biggest drug bust to lengthy prison terms.  

Avtandil Martiashvili, a Georgian citizen who was driving the truck when 850 kilos of heroin were seized on January 17, 2014 at the Meghri customs house was sentenced to 17 years.

Turkish citizen Osman Oğurlu, who ran the company that had leased the truck in question, got 19 years.

Both men had protested their innocence since the trail got underway in the summer of 2014.
