GLENDALE — Armenian prosecutor Mikaelyan Geisha remembers some years ago when if he wanted to work with Glendale authorities on a case, it took a long time just to present it to them.
But cooperation with Armenian officials has improved a great deal during the last five years, he said.
“It’s a lot easier than several years ago when it would take a year to present a case to the other side,” he said through an interpreter as he visited Glendale police Friday with another prosecutor from Armenia, Baghdasazyan Khachatuz.
The improved communication makes it easier to prosecute criminals who flee to Armenia from the U.S., Geisha said.
The prosecutors came from Armenia to the U.S. this week to work with the FBI on a medical fraud case in Sacramento. But they also made time to visit with their crime-fighting partners in Glendale.
