Mrs. Anahit Beknazaryan applied to Tavush AARC with complaint that her brother having the aim to deprive her from ownership right of their paternal house had applied to the psychiatrist of a Medical center with request to provide medical referral on A. Beknazaryan’s health for medical examination and treatment in Nor Nork Psychiatric Medical Clinic. Based on the false information provided by H. B. and without seeing or examining Mrs. A. Beknazaryan, psychiatrist of this medical center H. H., without having any grounds and based on individual motivations, filled in a false medical referral with a preliminary diagnosis “impairment of consciousness and dilution.” Thus the citizen was sent to Yerevan Psychiatric Medical Clinic for specification of the diagnosis and treatment. The Director of the Medical Center signed and approved the medical referral. In addition, psychiatrist wrote out a prescription with which H.B. bought “aminazine” from the drug store. They had planned to give this medicine to A. Beknazaryan and then send her to Nor Nork Psychiatric Medical Clinic after she had taken it and was under its influence.
On 28.12.2010 A. Beknazaryan applied to the Police Department of the RA Tavush Marz with a claim to call the mentioned persons to criminal responsibility. By the decision of the Senior Investigator of Police Department of the RA Tavush Marz initiation of criminal procedure against the mentioned person was denied on the reasoning of the absence of corpus delicti in their actions.
The decision was appealed to the superior prosecutor, yet with no result.
Consequently, in result of partial and inadequate investigation by the authority that implements criminal proceedings, the statement on the crime was not examined duly and no criminal proceeding was instituted in the order provided by law.
Mrs. Arpine Yeghikyan, Advocate of Tavush AARC prepared a claim against the decision of 30.03.2011 of the Senior Investigator of Police Department of the RA Tavush Marz to deny initiation of criminal procedure against the mentioned person on the reasoning of the absence of corpus delicti in their actions. The claim was sent to Mr. Aghvan Hovsepyan, Prosecutor General of the Republic of Armenia. By the memorandum of 19.05.2011 №67/38d-01-11of the Prosecutors Office of the RA Tavush Marz, the decision denying initiation of criminal proceeding on the former application of Mrs. A Beknazaryan was annulled.
