NSS chief says they have gathered evidence against Robert Kocharyan and his illegal tactics of obtaining wealth. Will soon publish details on how he became the owner of the Congress restaurant. Says they know how and where the funds came from. We're talking about hundreds of millions of dollars of stolen money. More revelations will be made around Sashik Sargsyan and his 50-50 wealth. Says billions of dollars were plundered out of the country. https://armenpress.am/arm/news/946820/ ---- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLBCQLjSDUI

... Kocharyan is charged for taking a $6mln bribe and buying Congress Hotel with it https://news.am/arm/news/470505.html

NSS chief: Part of Sashik's 50-50 money has been found in his bank account https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8QQc-GIXW8

NSS chief says he has to walk around with bodyguards now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvDbv5HWkMM

HHK allies wiretapped the phone conversation

between NSS and Investigative chief (SIS) to try to frame them in a negative light. There doesn't seem to be anything illegal in the audio. In the contrary, they are very cautious on what the law says and whether they can or should arrest someone. The only part that needs clarification and context is the judge's part when they prefer him to give the arrest verdict:

"They are discussing Kocharyan's reaction when he found out about the charges, the details of the case, about how a judge is scared of taking the case against a former high ranking politician, Vanetsyan tells him not to worry about it and be more courageous, he thinks the judge should give the arrest verdict, the judge agrees to get familiarized with the case before he can make his verdict, Vanetsyan agrees, Vantsyan doesn't want Khachaturov charged in order to avoid a political showdown with Russia but the SIS (Special Investigative Service) chief doesn't care that Khachatorov is the CSTO boss, they eventually decide not to arrest but to release on bail, at a later conversation SIS chief explains why arresting Khachaturov at this stage would not be legal, Vanetsyan still wants charges dropped against Khachaturov but SIS chief insists that he broke a law, Vanetsyan asks why charge him if he was following Seyran Ohanyan's orders?, SIS says they'll get to Seyran too." https://youtu.be/7ntZXpgeO3g?t=102

Nikol Pashinyan responds and makes accusations towards Kocharyan, Sargsyan, Hovik Abrahamyan and few other oligarchs for being behind the attempt to stop the anti-corruption fight. Says many government employees today were appointed by HHK and are still loyal to them. Some judges still wait for "orders from above", but that needs to stop. That was the reason why the judge called NSS chief, who then told the judge to be courageous. Says if they had the intention to play the same way that old administration did, Kocharyan would be in prison now, yet the independent judge let him out, and HHK has the ability to buy news organizations and badmouth the new administration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHo3sz40wRk

Vanetsyan confirms the conversation is real. He is concerned that someone was able to wiretap them. There will be an investigation. There is already a criminal investigation around it. Denies that anything wrong was said. Says nothing will stop them from continuing the fight against corruption. The murderers and plunderers will be brought to justice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhMG5rgsg2I

SIS calls the wiretap a sad attempt to stop them. Says there was nothing illegal in that conversation. Says that they were discussing the basis for the persons' arrests. He explains the legal reasons behind the hesitation to arrest Yuri Khachaturov (CSTO chief). Says nothing will stop him from doing his work. It appears that he is more worried about appearing too lax on the suspects, than too harsh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p1vWx3WiYQ

In response to Armenian Times journalist, Vanetsyan says in the past few months, they've done more work than was done in the past 20 years. Says the public values it, and he will only resign if the public distrusts him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZO4U8tIPj4

BOMBSHELL! Special Investigative Service (SIS) chief says Seyran Ohanyan hasn't been charged yet. Decides to make a new information public. Says they've discovered new evidence that the army not only was brought into the scene during March 1st, but they also illegally fired at residential buildings on Leo St., after someone threw a molotov cocktail from one of the balconies. Says when the soldiers were illegally moved out of frontlines and brought into Yerevan, some of the remaining soldiers on the front were left without substitutes, thus creating a security threat. During this time, a diversion attack took place by Azerbaijan. Says he will reveal a new evidence that proves the former officials used soldiers as paid mercenaries to protect the oligarch's interests. They have the records of those funds being drawn out of oligarch-owned bank accounts. He will name names later.

The SIS chief reveals they have details proving that Tigran Abgaryan, a law enforcement agent who was killed during March 1st, was not killed by the rioters but by a special forces brigade. They have also found proof that oligarch's bodyguards illegally received bullet-proof vests and other gear form the army, so they could participate in March 1st and help the authorities https://armlur.am/838250/

1st president LTP and 3rd president SS will be called for a questioning regarding the March 1st incidents https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DFi6d-lGd0

At the time of the wiretapping, NSS chief was in Geneva. https://news.am/arm/news/470472.html

... his phone was on VivaCell-MTS network https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI2j2Q7yEV8

NSS chief Vanetsyan clarifies the audio part where he spoke with a judge. Says he presented his case to the judge and gave his assessment that Kocharyan should be arrested for 2 months. Says there is nothing illegal there. In the audio you can hear him say the judge was hesitant because of high profile case, he told the judge to have courage, judge said he will have to get to know the case fully https://news.am/arm/news/470474.html

If you prefer text over video: https://armenpress.am/arm/news/946801/

Pashinyan accepts Kocharyan's and Sargsyan's "challenge". Vows to establish the rule of law, even if he has to wear his iconic cammo outfit again https://youtu.be/kDcrGz5KBBs?t=2

Pashinyan blasts Kocharyan for pulling soldiers out of front-lines to "occupy his own people" during March 1st. Calls him a criminal and a traitor. Takes the gloves off and goes after Serj and his brother. Calls for everyone to voluntarily return the money they allegedly stole from the country https://youtu.be/uZG6wFqDmEo?t=89

MADLAD! Pashinyan responds to threats against him. Says if something bad happens to him, the public will drag those responsible onto the streets and tear them apart. Says he is the only guarantor that the old authorities are physically safe https://youtu.be/qSE8siTssU8?t=7

Yelq condemns the illegal wiretapping. Says the audio is a proof that the judges are independent. https://armenpress.am/arm/news/946812/ ----- https://news.am/arm/news/470478.html

HHK spokesman Sharmazanov says the audio is illegal, but the content is twice as shameful https://news.am/arm/news/470483.html

Sharmazanov attempts to use the audio leak to blame Pashinyan of creating a dictatorship, even thought the audio doesn't reveal Pashinyan sending any orders to judges. (Looks like you wrote that speech before the leak was published, Sharmaz dzya! Otherwise kudos for a quick speech-writing. ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M746p0xeE1g

ArmTimes provides evidence that the video was uploaded and subtitled by a Russian-speaking person http://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/144092

... but Pashinyan says they have information about oligarchs obtaining equipment that would allow them to wiretap the calls. Says there are shadowy "intel agencies" by the former officials. Says all these illegal groups will be dismantled. https://youtu.be/awZgzI2QlZs?t=95
