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.
In the video released yesterday by the National Security Service showing what was found in the summer resort home of Manvel Grigoryan, we clearly see boxes of supplies donated by students from Yerevan’s P.S. 164 destined for Armenian soldiers and letters they wrote to the troops.
