ArmInfo.The Civil Court of Appeal did not accept the complaint of the lawyer of the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan, Hayk Alumyan, against the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan. This was reported by the press service of the Judicial Department, while the rationale for the decision is not indicated.
To note, on September 17, 2018, the second president of Armenia presented a civil lawsuit against the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, to defend his honor and dignity and demanded that the court oblige the defendant to apologize. The reason for going to court was Pashinyan's statements made during his visit to France: ''He says that he is inviolable. What does it mean? That is, you can organize the killing of people and say "I'm inviolable". Where is this written?".
On June 12 of the current year, during the court hearing, after the representative of Pashinyan Gevorg Gezalyan, following the presumption of innocence, on behalf of the principal stated that the prime minister did not mean exactly Kocharyan the case was dismissed, and 200 thousand drams were recovered from the plaintiff in favor of the defendant to cover legal costs. Hayk Alumyan did not agree with this decision and appealed against this decision.
It should also be noted that for the fourth day, a small protest rally of supporters of Robert Kocharyan continues in Yerevan, who near the building of the Shengavit court of general jurisdiction, demand the execution of the decision of the Constitutional Court, which presumes the absence of legal basis for the arrest of the second president.
It should also be noted that today the Shengavit court of general jurisdiction chaired by Judge Anna Danibekyan will hold a hearing on the case of the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan, accused of overthrowing the constitutional system, and other persons involved in the "bloody events" of March 1, 2008 case.
