Manvel Grigoryan's son resigns as Etchmiadzin mayor

The mayor of Etchmiadzin, son of Manvel Grigoryan, Karen Grigoryan has resigned.

"I, Karen Grigoryan, submit my resignation by my will," he wrote on Facebook.

Yesterday morning, Grigoryan had met with the governor of Armavir Province, Gagik Mirijanyan, whereupon he had announced that he will continue to serve as mayor, reported.

But sometime thereafter, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that Karen Grigoryan’s father, Republican Party of Armenia MP, General Manvel Grigoryan, was suspected not solely of illegal possession of weapons and ammunition, but also of appropriating the goods which schoolchildren had sent for military servicemen as assistance.

As reported earlier, Manvel Grigoryan was arrested within the framework of the criminal case that was filed into the finding of illegal weapons and ammunition in his summer residence.
