More Arrests in Soldier Death Probe

Two more officers were arrested Tuesday in the criminal investigation into the death of Aghasi Abrahamyan, the 18-year-old conscript serving in a military unit in Nagorno-Karabakh who died late last month after being hospitalized with serious injuries.


A statement released by Armenia’s defense ministry notes the military officers are suspected of complicity and are charged under RA Criminal Code Article 375.


Recall, one of the unit’s officer and a soldier were arrested last week. The soldier was charged with hazing and assigned pre-trial detention, while a case was brought against the officer under a Criminal Code article relating to abuse of power and “inactivity.”


Relatives insist the young man was beaten to death.
