Handing over Permyakov to Armenia not discussed


Yerevan /Mediamax/. The General Prosecutor Offices of Armenia and Russia have discussed the details of the massacre committed in Gyumri the day before.

“Both parties stressed the culprits of the tragedy should be punished to the fullest extent of the law”, the General Prosecutor Office of Armenia informed.


“Valery Permyakov suspected of the crime is a Russian citizen and has been placed under the control of Russian law enforcement agencies, that is under the Russian jurisdiction. Thus, handing over Valery Permyakov to Armenian law enforcement bodies is not discussed considering the ban enshrined in paragraph 1 of Article 61 of the Russian Constitution, which speculates that the Russian citizen cannot be handed over to another country”, the press release of the General Prosecutor Office of Armenia reads.


The investigation is carried out by Armenian and Russian law enforcement agencies.


“The Armenian party will be consistent for all the culprits to pay the penalty established by the law”, the Prosecutor’s Office informed.
