Former Armenian official detained in Russia's Karelia
Former chief of Compulsory Enforcement Officer of Judicial Acts of Armenia Mihran Poghosyan has been arrested in Russia's Karelia, spokesperson of the Armenian Special Investigation Service Marina Ohanjanyan said.
"The process of extradition is in progress," Sputnik Armenia cited her as saying.
Mihran Poghosyan is involved in the headline-making case of money laundering through an offshore company.
Earlier this week the judge rendered a decision to remand Poghosyan. He has been included as an accused-on-trial for committing publicly dangerous acts (using official position, confiscating property in particularly large amounts through squander and misusing official powers, which led to heavy consequences).
