Chief of ex-President Serzh Sargsyan’s security detail Vachagan Ghazaryan will be jailed again, Armenpress reports.
The Court of Cassation has approved the complaint of the prosecutor general’s deputy on upholding the first instance court’s ruling on remanding him into custody and overruling the previous bail decision.
Vachagan Ghazaryan was detained by the National Security Service (NSS) on June 25 on charges of illicit enrichment and false asset declaration.
He was placed under pre-trial detention for two-months, but was released from pre-trial detention on a 1,000,000,000 AMD bail in July.
Ghazaryan served as first deputy director of the state protection service under the NSS until May 17, 2018. While in office, he was in charge of the security detail of then President Serzh Sargsyan.
