As a Lawyer and Corporate Counsel for Global Gold, VAN KRIKORIAN knows very well what the difference between a civil and criminal matter is.
Van Krikorian also knows that filing a criminal complaint to gain advantage in a civil complaint is not only unethical and a breach of his professional conduct as a member of the bar, in this case it is attempted extortion.
What was the "BOGUS" Criminal Complaint?
That I stole 100% of the Shares of Marjan Mining Company from Global Gold, a theft equivalent to $2.850,000.
Unbelievable! You enter into a transaction in New York. The resolutions are passed and all shares are transfered to the JV, and then he claims I stole 100% of the shares when I transfered them to the JV which I control 55% and Van Krikorian controls 45%. So how did I steal 100% of the shares?
Below is the Copy of the translation and the official "DECISION TO INSTITUTION OF CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS" signed by deputy prosecutor Mr. A. Afandyan.
The Deputy Prosecutor A. Afandyan was obviously corrupted by Van Krikorian and his agents in Armenia. There is no other reasonable explanation.
The Police after a 10 month investigation found no evidence of a constitution of a crime and the complaint is of a civil nature. You think the Prosecutor's Office couldn't figure it out immediately?
"From any set of equally probable explanations, we should assume the one which makes the fewest fundamental assumptions is correct, until we have reason to believe otherwise".
Just read the Decision....you decide!
My lawyer in Armenia had the same opinion, that the Prosecutor is being mislead or worse.
THE NET EFFECT OF FILING A BOGUS CRIMINAL COMPLAINT, which was authorized by VAN KRIKORIAN, was for Caldera to walk away.
I believe under the letter of the law this is an attempt of EXTORTION. See my earlier blog posting at http://extortion-in-armenia.blogspot.ca/2012/06/definition-of-extortion.html
He filed this complaint in early September 2010, weeks before he unilaterally terminated the JV, on October 7, 2010.
