Addressee of 1 ton of cocaine was fruit importing company owned by fugitive ex- lawmaker, says Prime Minister




YEREVAN, MAY 24, ARMENPRESS. The addressee of the 1 ton of cocaine that was seized by Armenian authorities was a well-known banana importing company, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told lawmakers in parliament.

“The National Security Service has made the first arrest in this case moments ago,” Pashinyan said. 

“The addressee of that 1 ton of cocaine was a well known banana importing company, owned by a former Member of Parliament, who is now a fugitive, if I’m not mistaken from the Republican Party,” Pashinyan said, emphasizing that the presumption of innocence shouldn’t be violated.

The NSS reported the first on May 24.

“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
