Manvel Grigoryan's Lawyer Quits

Manvel Grigoryan’s lawyer, Hrant Ananyan, says he’ll no longer defend the retired army general and parliament deputy due to revelations released by the National Security Service (NSS) yesterday regarding the discovery of donated food and medical supplies, destined for Armenian troops, in Grigoryan’s summer resort home.

Ananyan, in a Facebook post, writes that he was ready to defend Grigoryan on the illegal arms possession charge but was caught off guard by the other findings of the NSS.

“In these circumstances, I don’t find it convenient to continue offering my legal services to M. Grigoryan,” Ananyan writes.
