Members of Karabakh parliament made a statement to protect Levon Hayrapetyan

  • Tuesday, July 22, 23:06

The parliamentary factions and deputy groups of the Karabakh National Assembly have come  forward with a statement because of detaining of the Karabakh businessman Levon Hayrapetyan on 15 July 2014. 

The statement says that Levon Hayrapetyan was a patriot and has been implementing various charitable programme in his native land - Karabakh for many years, assisting social and economic development of this country. "We think that preliminary investigation bodies should immediately change pre-trial restrictions regarding Hayrapetyan, and release him from under guard taking into consideration his heath problems. We think that being a law-abiding citizen and an educated man, he will assist the preliminary investigation bodies..We are confident, that law-enforcement agencies of Russia  will be able to conduct an impartial and multilateral investigation of the case, as a result of which Hayrapetyan will be recognized innocent", the statement reads. 

To remind, the Russian special services have detained one of the richest Armenian businessmen in the world Levon Hayrapetyan on suspicion of being privy to the notorious "Kingisep" criminal group.  According to Rosbalt, Hayrapetyan was detained on Tuesday upon arriving in Moscow from his home in Monaco. Shortly the investigators are planning to petition the Basmanny Court to arrest the businessman. They are currently investigating the case of Sergey-Finagin's "Kingisepp" group, which together with Alexander Matusov's "Schelkovo" gang, is believed to have done a number of contract killings first for businessman Georgy Safiyev (killed in the United States) and then for former Senator Igor Izmestyev (who is now in jail for life). And it was Izmestyev who said that Levon Hayrapetyan was privy to some of the killings, particularly, those related to the Bashneft oil company.
