International Manhunt for Nephew of Ex-Armenian President Sargsyan Ends in Prague
The Armenian Department of Police reports that a combined European law enforcement taskforce has found Narek Sargsyan, the nephew of former Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, who fled Armenia last summer to avoid drugs and weapons charges.
Sargsyan was located in Prague on December 6.
Armenia’s National Security Service (NSS) issued an international manhunt for Narek Sargsyan following a July 5, 2018 raid on his home in Armenia that revealed a large cache of drugs and weapons. The NSS reported that Narek Sargsyan and a bodyguard fled to Moscow on July 22.
According to today’s police statement, when asked to identify himself by law enforcement, Sargsyan produced a fake Guatemalan passport in the name of Franklin Gonzalez.
