Constitutional Court’s Decision on Robert Kocharyan’s Case: Date Is Known

Armenia


The Constitutional Court has decided to examine the constitutionality of Article 300.1 of the Criminal Court under which Robert Kocharyan is accused of state coup. The high court eventually published its decision on the application of Judge Davit Grigoryan.

The chair of the Constitutional Court Hrair Tovmasyan has decided that the examination of this case will start on August 20. The answerer is the National Assembly. The case will be examined in writing.

As is known, earlier the judges of the Constitutional Court had decided that the new judge Vahe Grigoryan cannot participate in the examination of the case of Kocharyan because he was the defender of the victims of March 1 case.

It is also known that several lawyers and advocates have expressed a position that the other judges of the Constitutional Court, particularly those appointed by the former ruling system, including the chair of the Constitutional Court Hrair Tovmasyan cannot examine Robert Kocharyan’s case as they cannot be unbiased because they have been appointed members of the Constitutional Court by that government.

The decision of the Constitutional Court to examine Robert Kocharyan’s case has again been criticized by some experts that the Court of Appeal has changed the decision of the First Instance Court and the Constitutional Court had no right to accept the application for examination otherwise this is an interference with the three-tier system.
