Defense Minister is first person responsible for all incidents in army - Armenian opposition
The South Caucasus region should not have an army like the Armenian army, said ANC representative Gurgen Yeghiazaryan, during a press conference held today, reflecting on the recent death of Aghasi Abrahamyan.
"The first and foremost person responsible for all incidents occurring in the army is the Minister of Defense, who could not improve the state of our army", he said.
Aghasi Abrahamyan, 18, a soldier of the Armenian Army was taken to hospital unconscious on August 26, and he died there an hour later. Despite evident traces of brutality on his body, it was initially reported that he was poisoned and had died as a result of falling from his bed at the medical care unit. The soldier's death caused a great stir among the public, and an officer and a soldier were arrested within the framework of the criminal case that was launched.
