Pastinfo has informed that on July 3 that the former prosecutor general and the former head of the Investigative Committee Aghvan Hovsepyan has been interviewed as witness to the March 1 case.
The March 1 case was handled by Aghvan Hovsepyan when he was prosecutor general. During the resumed investigation after the velvet revolution the Special Investigative Service stated about coverup of evidence by Vahagn Harutyunyan, the former head of the investigative group for the March 1 case, after which he was appointed deputy to Aghvan Hovsepyan at the Investigative Committee. Vahagn Harutyunyan is currently hiding in Russia.
Aghvan Hovsepyan may have been interviewed for the case of Zakar Hovhannisyan murder. A few weeks ago the former chief of staff of the internal forces Gegham Petrosyan was charged and remanded in custody for this murder.
The former prosecutor general was keeping a low profile after the velvet revolution for a long time, until he appeared in headlines on May 28. He was attending an event in Aparan. Deputy prime minister Tigran Avinyan was also present.
This event was discussed on the web and in the press because Aghvan Hovsepyan and Tigran Avinyan were caught on cameras while walking side by side. It is clear why it aroused questions among the public.
Aghvan Hovsepyan is not only associated with the former ruling system but was also one of its key actors at a central point and position. Or, in other words, he is a key witness not only for the criminal case but also in general. But it Aghvan Hovsepyan an effective witness? If yes, it could be the best answer to the questions of the public about the march during this event. If not, the questions may become deeper and accrue.
