Armenian forum of the USA gathers petition against appointing Tigran Sargsyan as Armenia's ambassador to the USA

  • Tuesday, July 1, 18:34

 Armenian forum of the USA has been gathering a petition against appointing ex-premier of Armenia Tigran Sargsyan as Armenia's ambassador to the USA, reported. 

We have informed US Department of State that at present Tigran Sargsyan is implicated in the multi-million offshore scandal. Moreover, he used his authorities for the personal gain. He also takes part in several other "dark" stories. But Armenian high ranked governmental circles have been taking attempts to save Sargsyan from the criminal prosecution, having appointed him as an ambassador and ensuring his immunity. The approval of a candidate with such a "dark past" as Armenia's ambassador to the USA contradicts Armenian democratic and legal principles. Moreover, it contains a threat to our national dignity. We require from US Department of State to hinder Sargsyan's escaping justice. We require from the US Department of State to abandon confirming of Tigran Sargsyan's candidacy for the position of Armenia's ambassador to the USA, the Armenian forum of America says.  

To note, ex-premier of Armenia Tigran Sargsyan was appointed as Armenia's ambassador to the USA. The appointment decree was signed by President Serzh Sargsyan.
