Manvel Grigoryan's son, who recently resigned as Echmiatsin mayor, is being investigated for massive corruption. He is ordered not to leave the country.

Manvel Grigoryan's wife has been arrested. The details aren't clear. It's related to her involvement in Yerkrapah's stealing of military items.

Arshaluys residents are demanding mayor's resignation. Mayor is being accused of threatening people with retaliation for political opposition, not paying salaries, assault, and firing for wrongful reasons. He is Manvel Grigoryan's cousin.

Protests continue on front of mayor's office. One participant claims Taron ordered his people to assault him (no definite proof, only allegations at this point). Other financial crimes are being blamed on the mayor's office.

Fact TV makes a documentary about Taron and his wealth. Submits the evidence to NSS. Story is picked up by the public TV H1.
