The Prosecutor General’s Office has issued a statement commenting on recent reports on the press and social networks “with an obvious intention to manipulate public opinion and to mar the activity of the criminal prosecution bodies” on the ruling of the European Court of Human Rights on Mayrapetyan v Armenia case. According to these reports, the court found a violation of Samvel Mayrapetyan’s rights.
The Prosecutor General’s Office explains, referring to the 39thrule of the Rules of Court, which states: “The Chamber or, where appropriate, the President of the Section or a duty judge appointed pursuant to paragraph 4 of this Rule may, at the request of a party or of any other person concerned, or of their own motion, indicate to the parties any interim measure which they consider should be adopted in the interests of the parties or of the proper conduct of the proceedings.” This in no way can be considered a finding of violation of rights.
According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Court granted a claim for an interim measure without finding a violation of rights, demanding immediate guarantee that the applicants receives proper medical aid, including transluminal drainage if needed as required by his or her state of health and doctors.
The Prosecutor General’s Office informs that all necessary measures were and are taken to ensure that appropriate medical aid is provided to the prosecuted person.
