The Investigative Committee responded to the recent publication of Forrights.am in the case of Private Volodya Galoyan. Committee spokeswoman Rima Yeganyan told us the following.
“The Chairman of the RA Investigative Committee instructed the Control Department of the General Military Investigation Department to check the process, efficiency, completeness and comprehensiveness of the investigation of the criminal case initiated on the death of soldier V. Galoyan.” Galoyan died on June 29, 2019 in the Hadrut military unit. He was born in 2000. He died of a gunshot wound to the head in July 2019. Investigators are advancing the hypothesis of suicide, although a lot of evidence has been accumulated this year that should have been the basis for rejecting the hypothesis.
