Court will announce decision on request to cancel arrest of Robert  Kocharyan on September 17

ArmInfo. The court of general jurisdiction of Yerevan, presided by Judge Anna Danibekyan, has retired to the deliberation room in the case of Robert Kocharyan and  other former senior officials. The court will announce the decision  on the request to cancel the arrest as a preventive measure,  submitted by Kocharyan's defense group, on September 17 at 1:00 pm.

Earlier today, Kocharyan's lawyers petitioned for the immediate  suspension of the criminal prosecution of Kocharyan on the basis of a  decision of the Constitutional Court of September 4 and the immediate  elimination of the preventive measure chosen against the second  president of Armenia.

In turn, the prosecutor Gevorg Baghdasaryan said that the acts  incriminated to Robert Kocharyan did not affect his functional  integrity, that is, they could not be considered as arising from the  status of the president, therefore, Kocharyan could not be released  on the basis of the decision of the Constitutional Court.

To recall, in the Shengavit branch of the court of general  jurisdiction of Yerevan on September 12 for 5 hours a court session  was held in the case of the second President of the Republic of  Armenia Robert Kocharyan and other senior officials, in the case of  March 1.

In addition to the second President of Armenia, the court was also  attended by former chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of  Armenia, former CSTO Secretary General Yuri Khachaturov, former  Minister of Defense Seyran Ohanyan and former Deputy Prime Minister  of the Republic Armen Gevorgyan.

To recall, the second president of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, is  accused of overthrowing the constitutional order and receiving a  bribe of $ 3 million.
