If you believe the signatures on the documents, Armenia’s Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan and Armenian Apostolic Church Archbishop Navasard Kjoyan are partners with a businessman charged with money laundering for taking a US$10.7 million bank loan and then depositing most of it in accounts he controlled in Cyprus.
The archbishop says he didn’t sign the documents. The prime minister has called for an investigation.
