“He was examined as a witness as a police officer holding a post at that time,” Davtyan said.

He refuted the rumors claiming Karapetyan’s death has something in common with the March 1 case.

“In criminal law terms, these are hypotheses. Such hypotheses are always put forward and measures are taken to examine them. As to the people you have named, I have no facts that I could share with you and that would have confirmed this hypothesis. I am inclined to verify all versions,” he said.
