On September 11, 2010 Mr. Hrayr Ghukassyan, the legal counsel for Global Gold in Armenia was authorized to file a bogus criminal complaint against me. During September 2010 Global Gold was claiming it was negotiating in good faith to settle the dispute between them and Caldera. Instead they were planing an attack in Armenia and to cancel the JV Agreement between the parties in the US. The JV was unilaterally cancelled by Global Gold on October 7, 2010 but they did not make it public till October 15, 2010, and breached SEC rules.
All their claims were thrown out by the Police investigators on August 24, 2011. There was no evidence of a constitution of any crime. The Police stated that the nature of the complaints are of a civil matter. Below is an extract of the Police conclusion. See Part V for more detailed information.

After the complaint was filed, Mr. Ghukassyan started a letter writing campaign to the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of the Republic of Armenian,the Hon. Armen Movsisyan, demanding that:
"Taking into account the above-mentioned and considering the significance of legal procedures initiated by the Company, I hereby ask you to abstain from any acts relating to “Marjan Mining Company” LLC, including provision of any documents, until the competent authorities deliver a decision on merits, since it may have adverse impact on the exploitation projects of the mine."
Considering that Global Gold filed criminal complaint on September 11, 2010 and filed a law suit against the State Registry to undo the registration of the transfer of the shares they demanded that the Ministry not cooperate with Caldera or provide them any documents.
