Ex-President’s nephew to be extradited to Armenia

Narek Sarsgsyan is charged with illegal acquisition and possession of weapons, arms, explosives, as well as illegal drug circulation.

The Armenian Prosecutor General’s office has ordered the Armenian police to organize Sargsyan’s return to the country.

In July 2018, he was declared internationally wanted.
