Argishti Kyaramyan, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee says the evidence they have now in the investigation into the Surmalu explosion speak more about negligence.
Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan asked Kyaramyan at the Cabinet meeting whether the investigators considered foul play, such as terrorist attack or other criminal intent, and whether or not any circumstances substantiating or ruling out these scenarios exist at this moment.
Kyaramyan said investigators are looking into various scenarios, including those mentioned by the PM.
“At this moment the criminal investigation doesn’t have any fact which would indicate terrorist attack or any other criminal intent,” Kyaramyan said.
The Prime Minister said that the surveillance footage from the trade center and other eyewitness accounts suggest that terrorism can be ruled out, but reiterated that a final conclusion shouldn’t be made until the investigation is completed.
