YEREVAN, JULY 25, ARMENPRESS-ARTSAKHPRESS. 674 couples, who participated in Karabakh "Big Wedding", appealed to the competent authorities of the Russian Federation, demanding to release businessman Levon Hayrapetyan. As reports “Armenpress”, the "Big Wedding" couples expressed hope that the Russian law enforcement bodies will display an objective approach, in the result of which the benefactor’s innocence will be proved.
"We, the 674 couples of "Big Wedding", initiated by Levon Hayrapetyan in 2008, consider invaluable the great benefactor’s contribution to the development of Artsakh, displayed by both sponsoring us and our children, and many other major projects. In the frames of "Big Wedding" project 674 families were formed in Artsakh, and during almost 6 years’ time around 1200 children were born. Being well aware of Levon Hayrapetyan’s high human values, we are convinced that the accusations against him are groundless. We hope that the Russian law enforcement bodies will display an objective approach, in the result of which the great benefactor’s innocence will be proved. Considering the investigation process and revelation of truth as a matter of time, at this stage we demand that the preliminary investigation body should immediately release Levon Hayrapetyan from custody. Once released, in addition to providing assistance to the preliminary investigation, he will have the opportunity to improve his health condition, about which we are mostly concerned," reads the letter.
Previously it was reported that the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation arrested Russia-resident rich Armenian businessman Levon Hayrapetyan. As reports “Armenpress” citing “Rosbalt”, Levon Hayrapetyan was detained on July 15 in Domodedovo Airport, where the airplane landed from Monaco.
The investigators transported the Armenian businessman to the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation under special surveillance, where he was officially informed about the arrest.
The law enforcement authorities suspect Levon Hayrapetyan of having connections with the band led by criminal authority Sergey Finagin.
