Armenia: Investigative Service Head Promises New Information on March 1, 2008 Events
Sasoun Khachatryan, the newly appointed head of Armenia’s Special Investigative Service (SIS), told reporters today that new information regarding the anti-government protests of March 1, 2008, in which ten people died, would soon be posted on the SIS website.
While refraining from providing details on what would be revealed, Khachatryan said the SIS has the political will to go ahead with the investigation and that it would be comprehensive.
“The scope of what will be published will be limited so that the ongoing case is not negatively impacted and that the presumption of innocence of individuals is not violated,” Khachatryan said.
When asked if Nazik Amiryan, the wife of Manvel Grigoryan, who is suspected of involvement in the “army supplies” theft case would be arrested, Khachatryan said the investigation was ongoing and it was too early to say.
