Serzh Sargsyan did not attend the court session due to illness
ArmInfo. Third President of  Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, does not take part in the court session. As  Sargsyan's lawyer Amram Makinyan said, the latter has ARVI. The lawyer stressed that yesterday the condition of his client  worsened. Makinyan also presented to the court a certificate from a  doctor regarding Sargsyan's state of health. Makinyan stressed that  the third president of Armenia was prescribed home treatment. Judge Vahe Misakyan postponed the hearing, but before that he decided  to hear out the prosecutor. In turn, Prosecutor Arsen Martirosyan  doubted whether the third president of Armenia really could not be  present at the hearing. He expressed his dissatisfaction with the  fact that Sargsyan was absent from the court session for the  umpteenth time. rAs a result, the lawyer and the prosecutor entered into a verbal  skirmish. The judge interrupted the parties, asking them to speak to  the point. As a result, Misakyan considered Sargsyan's absence to be  respectful.  The next hearing on the case will take place on October  22. To note,  third President of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, is accused of  organizing embezzlement on an especially large scale - about 500  million drams. We are talking about the state program approved in  2013 by the Government for a more affordable purchase of diesel fuel  for the implementation of spring agricultural work. According to the  investigation, Sargsyan, having exceeded his official powers,  facilitated the purchase of diesel fuel from Flash Ltd at higher  prices.  Serzh Sargsyan was charged with point 1 of part 3 of Article  38-179 of the RA Criminal Code, former Minister of Agriculture of the  RA Sergo Karapetyan - under point 1 of part 3 of Article 179 of the  RA Criminal Code, Head of Flash Ltd Barsegh Beglaryan - under point 1  of part 3 of Article 38-179 of the Criminal Code RA, fomer Deputy  Minister of Agriculture of the RA Samvel Galstyan and head of the  plant growing department of the same ministry Gevorg Harutyunyan -  under paragraph 1 of part 3 of Article 38- 179 of the RA Criminal  Code.
