CRIMINAL CASE INITIATED ON FORGERY AND USAGE OF DOCUMENTS AS WELL AS SLANDERING
2010/11/01 | 16:55
The Department for Investigation by National Security Agencies of
the RA General Prosecutor’s Office has initiated a criminal case
on forgery and usage of documents as well as slandering the judge,
the prosecutor, the investigator or the person in charge of inquiry
accompanied with committing a grave crime.
On September 13, 2010 an article was published in the “Hetq” weekly
newspaper referring to the open letter sent to the RA President,
the Ministry of Justice, the General Prosecutor’s Office and the
National Security Service in the name of the citizen of Romania Oliver
Raduku Mariani on the fact that he had given bribery to different
legal bodies of Armenia in order to give him milder punishment. The
RA General Prosecutor tasked to send the above-mentioned article to
the RA National Security Service with the purpose of carrying the
investigation according to the law established order.
During the investigation carried out by the RA National Security
Service, Konstantin Stengachu, sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment
in the framework of the same criminal case, gave the investigation
body a printed unsigned letter sent to the “Vardashen” penitentiary
in the name of Oliver Raduku on August 23, 2010 as an example of the
mentioned “open letter”, whereas this kind of letter wasn’t sent
to the General Prosecutor’s Office and the National Security Service.
On September 29, 2010 the head of the “Vardashen” penitentiary sent
to the General Prosecutor’s Office a cassation appeal handwritten
in Armenian by Konstantin Stengachu on September 23, 2010, where he
had mentioned the unsigned “open letter” sent by Oliver Raduku on
August 23, 2010 and asked to fully reserve his judgment and send the
criminal case to the Court to implement new examination.
The above-mentioned unsigned printed false letter was attached to
Konstantin Stengachu’s cassation appeal addressed to the RA Court
of Cassation by which the person acting in the name of Oliver Mariani
spread and published false information accusing the legal and judicial
bodies of committing grave crimes, that is taking bribery in large
amounts, and tried to inflate the examination of the criminal case
by slandering the officials and to assist Konstantin Stengachu in
illegally reserving his judgment.
During the investigation the “open letter” in the name of Oliver
Mariani wasn’t found. Even an unsigned letter was attached to the
package sent to the Court of Cassation. On October 15, 2010 a letter
signed by Oliver Mariani was sent to the RA National Security Service
by the post office of the UK where the latter denied having sent on
open letter to the RA President. Oliver Raduku informed that he came
to know the content of the “open letter” sent in his name by reading
the articles published in the web-site of the weekly “Hetq” which,
of course, was slander.
A criminal case has been initiated by the Department for Investigation
by National Security Agencies of the RA General Prosecutor’s Office
as part 1 of the Article 325 and part 3 of the Article 344 of the
RA Criminal Code were infringed and the preliminary investigation
of the criminal case has been tasked to the RA Special Investigation
Service by the RA General Prosecutor.
