Commander of the Armenian Police Troops to be Dismissed

After his first government cabinet session today, Pashinyan told reporters about his plans to dismiss the Commander of the Armenian Police Troops since 2012, Deputy Chief of Armenian Police Levon Yeranosyan.

In response to the question whether Yeranosyan would be only dismissed or also held accountable, Pashinyan said: "The penalties that are substantiated and are within prime minister’s domain, will be applied. As for other cases, I have already said that I cannot act as a judge, investigator, or prosecutor."
