YEREVAN.- The prosecutor demanded eight years’ imprisonment for former
Road Police Chief Margar Ohanyan.

The hearing into Ohanyan’s case was held at capital Yerevan’s Kentron
and Nork Marash General Jurisdiction Court on Tuesday.

Margar Ohanyan is charged with abuse of official position and
large-scale embezzlement of property, and he is under custody since
August 30. If found guilty, he could face up to twelve years in prison.

In his capacity as Armenia’s Road Police Chief, Margar Ohanyan is
charged with appropriating 574,420 liters of gasoline, which was
allocated to the Road Police, and thus with causing the state damages
worth 160 million drams (approx. US$ 420,000).

Along with Margar Ohanyan, Police Force personnel Stepan Karakhanyan,
Ara Levonyan, and Samvel Makhmuryan are also defendants in this case.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
