My son should be brought to responsibility for his misdeed, Armenian Minister of Sport and Youth, world famous weightlifter Yuri Vardanyan told journalists on Feb 26.
To recall, in 2013 Yuri Vardanyan's son David Vardanyan was arrested on the Armenian-Iranian border on suspicion of drug traffic. He is charged under Article 268 Part 3 (illicit drug turnover/ illicit production, processing, acquisition, keeping, transportation of drugs with no goal of large sales) and Article 215 Part 2 (drug smuggling) of the Criminal Code of Armenia.
Vardanyan said that he prefers not to interfere with the legal proceedings. He thinks that his son should be brought to responsibility for his misdeed. The minister added that it is wrong to use his post to solve personal problems.
