Former Karabakh army chief detained in Armenia

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev were in Brussels for a meeting organized by European Council President Charles Michel.

The Prosecutor General’s office has filed a lawsuit requesting the authorities confiscate over $47 million in properties and investments linked to Surik Khachatryan, the former governor of Armenia’s Syunik region.

Mikayel Arzumanyan, who served as Karabakh’s Defense Minister during the 2020 war, was detained in Karabakh on the order of Armenia’s Investigative Committee for “negligence” during the conflict.

The judge presiding over opposition activist Avetik Chalabyan’s case postponed making a decision on Chalabyan’s appeal without explanation.
