ArmInfo. The second president of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, insists on interrogation of two former members of the Constitutional Court in the framework of the March 1, 2008 case.
On May 14, the second President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan said in a speech to the court of general jurisdiction of the administrative districts of Avan and Nor Nork, referring to the episode of alleged pressure on the judges of the Constitutional Court. It should be noted that in the accusation against Kocharyan there is an episode according to which the second president of Armenia at one time allegedly put pressure on the Constitutional Court.
Kocharyan's lawyer Hayk Alumyan made a petition to question the former President of the Constitutional Court Gagik Harutyunyan and judge Hrant Nazaryan. According to another lawyer, Ruben Sahakyan, there are no testimonies in the criminal case confirming this accusation. "If there is no such testimony, then it is excluded the body conducting the proceedings, that is the prosecutor's office, would allow the case to reach court, and moreover, press charges," the lawyer said.
The second President of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, stated that the answers to all these questions should have been received during the investigation. "I see all this as a conscious, thoughtful, subjective approach throughout the entire investigation. If people don't give answers favorable for the investigation, the interrogation ends quickly, and that's the whole point. At that time, a directed investigation was conducted on this important episode. "It was just necessary to interrogate these persons," Kocharyan stressed.
Judge David Grigoryan dismissed the motion of the lawyers, noting that he would return to the question at another stage of the process.
