An Armenian politician who was held on suspicion of theft has been
released, diplomatic sources said yesterday.

Hagop Hagopyan, his son and a third suspect were held for questioning
late last month.

The incident occurred after a shop manager complained to police that
two leather jackets worth Dh60,000 had gone missing after the trio
had visited the store.

Hagopyan was on a visit to Dubai, said Arshag Poladyan, Armenian
Ambassador to the UAE.
