Goris Courts brings charges against Artakh Budaghyan

Goris Court has brought charges against Artak Budaghyan over the shootings near the house of now ex-governor of Syunik Surik Khachatryan.  Budaghyan is charged with threatening Khachatryan and his family, as the Court claims that on 1 June 2013 approximately at 10:00pm Budaghyan, who learnt that his brother Avetik Budaghyan was beaten up in Surik Khachatryan's car, drove to the house of the ex-governor in David Bek Street by his VAZ 2106 (30 SU 994) and threatened the ex-governor and his family with the hunter's gun.  The trial over the case will be chaired by Napoleon Ohanyan.  

To recall, Khachatryan resigned from the post of the Syunik Governor following shootouts in front of his house on June 2 2013 when the former candidate for Goris mayor Avo Budaghyan was killed and his brother Artak Budaghyan, a commander at a military unit in the NKR was wounded.  There was another wounded, Nikolay Arustamyan, a relative and bodyguard of Governor Suren Khachartyan.  

A criminal case was initiated on the basis of Article 103.1 (murder) and Article 235 (illegal use, storage and bearing weapons) of the Criminal Code of Armenia. Syunik Governor Suren Khachatryan's son, Tigran Khachatryan, was arrested over the shootouts. Earlier, the governor's bodyguard Zarzand Nikoghosyan was arrested over the case.  On June 3 Suren Khachatryan sent in his resignation declaring that everyone must answer for their mistakes.  He regretted for failing to prevent the tragic incident near his house.

On July 9, the brother of Avetik Budaghyan was charged with Article 137.1 of the Criminal Code.  On 7 September the Investigation Service Department for Special Cases at the Defense Ministry of Armenia set free Khachatryan's son and bodyguard claiming that they acted for self- defense.  Afterwards, Artak Budaghyan was charged with attack on Khachatryan's house. Then he was falling under amnesty, but refused from it.
