Valery Permyakov, a Russian soldier who stands accused of a family murder in Gyumri, Armenia, is undergoing forensic psychiatric expert examination, a reliable source told EAD.
The examination is underway at the 102nd Russian military base in Gyumri, Armenia, and is to be completed in some two weeks, according to the source. Experts will examine the soldier and set a diagnosis. “All the statements that Permyakov is suffering mental problems are just rumors. The results of the examination are not known yet,” the source says.
The investigation is held in close cooperation of the two countries law enforcers, the source said disclaiming the Mass Media reports on Russia’s unwillingness to operatively investigate Permyakov Case and submit it to the court. “The investigation is meeting schedule,” the source said.
As EAD reported earlier, seven members of the Avetisyans family were murder on January 12 in Gyumri. Permyakov, the soldier of the Russian military base in Gyumri, who stands accused of the murder, has confessed. Both the Armenian and Russian law-enforcements opened criminal cases. Following a bilateral agreement, the soldier will stand trial in the territory of Armenia.
