Armenian court rejects petition to arrest Russian citizen on U.S. request

Armenian court rejects petition to arrest Russian citizen on U.S. request

August 29
A court in Yerevan, Armenia on Monday, August 29 rejected a petition by the Prosecutor’s office to temporarily imprison a Russian citizen who was detained at Zvartnots international airport following his arrival in Armenia. He was set free by the court. Russian computer programmer Sergey Mironov was detained in Yerevan on Friday for alleged money laundering and illegal transfer of military technology, despite having no Interpol record. Mironov’s arrest was made following a U.S. government request. His lawyer, Russia-based Karen Nersisyan said the defendant knew nothing about accusations he was charged with. Mironov was arrested by Armenian security forces after arriving in Yerevan with his wife, Mironov’s lawyer in Russia, Karen Nersesyan, said, according to RT. After the arrest, he was moved to solitary confinement in Yerevan. “Mironov was vaguely told that he was being arrested per U.S. request, where he is wanted for alleged money laundering crimes worth $50,000,” Nersesyan said. Nersesyan describes the request as “very strange,” since Interpol has no record of Mironov in its international database. Moreover, no one at his work in Moscow is aware of any pending charges against him.
