Civilitas Director Salpi Ghazarian summoned to NSS

Executive Director of Civilitas Foundation Salpi Ghazarian has again been invited to the National Security Service for questioning as a witness in an investigation concerning money laundering (Criminal Code section 190, article 3) and involving the Civilitas Foundation and its founder, Vartan Oskanian.

In October, 2012, the National Assembly voted in favor of Prosecutor General’s petition to include Oskanian as a defendant in the criminal lawsuit. Oskanian considered the charges to be politically motivated.
