Son Of Former Armenian President Detained In Prague

Narek Sargsyan, a nephew of Armenia’s former President Serzh Sargsyan, has been detained in Prague, Czech police spokesman Jan Danek said on Sunday.


According to the spokesman, Narek Sargsyan, 37, was detained in a police operation conducted on the basis of Armenia’s international warrant for arrest. He was placed in custody at a pre-trial facility until court issues an extradition ruling.


Armenia issues an international warrant for Narek Sargsyan’s arrest in July 2018 on charges of drug dealing and illegal possession of arms and explosives.
