According to the news agency, an injured party in the case of thief in law Serezha Bentley, businessman Karen Mkhitaryan accompanied by OMON fighters has attempted to break into Rosbalt’s Moscow office today.
Karen Mkhitaryan has come to the editorial office in the company of two OMON soldiers, who have also taken part in the attempt to gain unauthorized access to the editorial office, and persistently demanded a talk with the news agency staff members.
Mkhitaryan has chosen not to bring claims in a written form, promising to come back the following day, bringing more OMON fighters with him.
Rosbalt’s lawyers consider the actions of Mkhitaryan and the accompanying OMON soldiers illegal. A statement with video recording attached thereto will be referred to law enforcement agencies.
Let us recall that Karen Mkhitaryan is a victim in the criminal case of thief in law Sergey Asatryan, known as Serezha Bentley and Osetrina Mladshy, who was detained in late 2015 on charges of Extortion a large sum of money (Article 163 of the Russian Criminal Code).
It is known that Serezha Bentley had hired people to set fire to the businessman’s country house in order to intimidate Mkhitaryan.
According to the lawyer of Artur Bagdasaryan, the second suspect in the case, summer 2015 Mkhitaryan owed a large sum of money to his business partners, who launched death threats against him. To pay the debt, Mkhitaryan allegedly took 1.2 million dollars from Artur Bagdasaryan’s safety deposit box. According to Artur Bagdasaryan’s lawyer, he gained access to it using a fake power of attorney purportedly granted by the owner.
Artur Bagdasaryan appealed for Serezha Bentley’s help after Mkhitaryan refused to return the stolen money.
Osetrina Mladshy, Bagdasaryan’s nephew, sided with the latter, causing Karen Mkhitaryan to file a statement about extortion to the police.
Meanwhile, according to an informed source of the CrimeRussia, Karen Mkhitaryan is Eduard Asatryan’s distant relative, and he is willing to change his testimony in exchange for 400,000 dollars, which he demands from the thief in law’s wife.
