Former defense minister to remain behind the bars

25 December 2021, 09:38 - NovostiNK
Former Minister of Defense of Armenia Davit Tonoyan will remain behind bars, as the Court of Appeals, presided over by judge Tigran Simonyan, on Friday upheld a lower court ruling to keep Tonoyan under arrest, denying the laywers' motion to release him, 168.am news outlet reported.

"We petitioned the court to show legal approach and objectivity to the case. The court, however, dealt with the case differently, which had nothing in common with legality," Tonoyan's lawyer told the source, dismissing the court ruling for Tonoyan's measure of restraint as baseless.

To remind, Davit Tonoyan was detained on suspicion of embezzlement of large sums of money on September 30. Tonoyan denies the charges.
