The Prosecutor General’s Office has reviewed the court decision on suspending the case of Robert Kocharyan et al and sending the case to the Constitutional Court and is currently preparing the appeal, Gor Abrahamyan, advisor to the Prosecutor General, posted on Facebook.
He clarifies that according to Article 6 Para 10.1 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the decision on suspending proceedings is a judicial act which does not resolve a case and is therefore effective immediately according to Article 427. However, according to Article 376.1 Para 3 states that decisions on suspending proceedings can be appealed.
“The Prosecutor General’s Office has studied the aforementioned judicial act and is currently preparing the appeal against it to the Court of Appeals,” Gor Abrahamyan wrote.
Note that yesterday, on May 20, Judge Davit Grigoryan decided to suspend the case of the ex-president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan, the ex-deputy prime minister Armen Gevorgyan, the ex-minister of defense Seiran Ohanyan and the ex-Secretary General of CSTO Yuri Khachaturov and sent to the Constitutional Court.
