 Former Armenian official detained in Russia

Russian law enforces have detained former Armenian official who has been searched by the Armenian police.

According to the media reports, Mihran Poghosyan, former MP and chief of Compulsory Enforcement Officer of Judicial Acts, has been arrested.

Armenia’s Special Investigation Service confirmed the reports for Armenian News-NEWS.am adding that the process of extradition is in progress.

Mihran Poghosyan is involved in the headline-making case of money laundering through an offshore company.

Earlier this week the judge rendered a decision to remand Poghosyan. He has been included as an accused-on-trial for committing publicly dangerous acts (using official position, confiscating property in particularly large amounts through squander and misusing official powers, which led to heavy consequences).
