Preliminary investigation of the criminal case initiated on manufacture, sale or keeping of counterfeited money or securities in large amount is ongoing in the Investigative Division of Erebuni and Nubarashen administrative districts of RA Investigative Committee. On the base of the obtained evidence charge was pressed against two persons.
 

In the result of investigatory and procedural measures, the circumstances and the way of manufacturing counterfeited banknotes and coins by a group of persons who had reached a prior agreement were found.
 

By the evidence obtained through preliminary investigation it was found that T. Yeganyan, being in a bad material state, decided to manufacture coins of 200 and 500 nominal value. Learning the way of manufacturing through the internet he obtained copper metals and got the copy by hitting in the sample pot. So, he manufactured and realized the coins in shops and minibuses.
 

At the end of 2014, being afraid that the crime committed by him can be revealed, T. Yeganyan decided to give it up. At the beginning of March, 2015 he met his fellow serviceman T. Avetyan. During the conversation they both complained of their material states and reached an agreement to manufacture and realize counterfeited banknotes. Counterfeited banknotes of 1.000 and 10.000 AMD nominal value were manufactured through a computer and a printer.
 

In the result of investigatory and procedural actions implemented in the framework of preliminary investigation, the tools and supplies for coin manufacture, the computer and the printer through which the counterfeited banknotes were manufactured, as well as the printed copies of 1.000 and 10.000 AMD nominal value and the cutting supplies were confiscated.
 

Forensic examination was appointed on the discovered banknotes of AMD nominal values.
 

On the base of the obtained evidence T. Avetyan and T. Yeganyan were charged according to the Points 1 and 2 of the Part 2 of the Article 202 of RA Criminal Code. Imprisonment was chosen as a pretrial measure against them.
 

Preliminary investigation is ongoing. Measures are taken to provide the complete and comprehensive examination of the circumstances of the case.
