ANM head against Armenian ex-interior minister’s return - security officer

PanARMENIAN.Net - Chairman of the Armenian National Movement (ANM) Board Aram Manukyan and several other board members stand against ANM ex-leader, RA former interior minister Vano Siradeghyan’s possible return, Siradeghyan’s former security officer said.

Suren Sirunyan further disclosed an “interesting story” about the then deputy minister of culture Aram Manukyan when the latter asked Siradeghyan either to withdraw from the voting or vote for the motion on his own arrest.

“Otherwise Manukyan might be dismissed from the post of deputy minister,” Mr. Sirunyan said.

It is noteworthy that at the very beginning of the press conference Sirunyan requested the journalists to refrain from asking ANM related questions.

Armenia’s ex-minister of interior affairs, former parliament member and ANM leader Vano Siradeghyan was deprived of parliamentary immunity in 2010 and a criminal case was initiated against him for a range of crimes, including creation of a gang and organization of contract killings. Since that moment, Siradeghyan has disappeared from Armenia and an international arrest warrant has been issued for him via Interpol.
