Brother of thief in law Armen Kanevskoy released on bail in Armenia
According to the investigation, he tried to get a fake passport.
Artem Arutyunyan (Artem Kanevskoy), crime lord and the brother of the late thief in law (vor) Armen Arutyunyan (Armen Kanevskoy) has been released from an Armenian prison on bail of 20 million drams (about $40.800), NEWS.am was told by Samson Galstyan, the spokesman for the National Security Service (NSS).
Artem Arutyunyan is accused of inciting a passport forgery. According to the investigation, he turned to an official with the request.
In June of this year, NSS officers came to Arutyunyan’s office with a search warrant; the findings were not reported.
The checks could have been a part of the large-scale operation throughout the country, during which the security forces came to the houses of dozens of thieves in law and crime lords in Armenia. Some were taken to police stations for a talk and Arutyunyan was one of those.
Armen Arutyunyan (Armen Kanevskoy) was his brother who died in 2010. He was a protégé of Aslan Usoyan (Ded Khasan) and was operating in the Krasnodar region.

Searches and blisters of the Armenian thieves started immediately after the non-violent change of power when Nikol Pashinyan became the prime minister.
