ArmInfo.Robert Kocharian's lawyer Hovhannes Khudoyan submitted a motion to release his client on bail.
Presenting the petition, Khudoyan applied the court of general jurisdiction to take into account in assessing the size of the bail the fact that Kocharyan's property is under arrest.
"There is not a single fact that can raise doubts about Kocharyan's intentions to hide from the investigation, hinder his progress, as well as any other similar acts. Today they are not presented to the court and cannot be presented," Khudoyan stated.
The court of general jurisdiction of Yerevan, chaired by Anna Danibekyan, decided to leave the former president Kocharyan in custody. "The court decided to reject the application for immediate release from custody. The decision can be appealed to the Court of Appeal," Danibekyan stated. Kocharyan's lawyers submitted a motion to change the preventive measure against him on September 12.
