ArmInfo.MP Arman Babajanyan's application against President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia Hrayr Tovmasyan was sent to the Special Investigation Service (SIS) with the aim of verifying the circumstances stated there through criminal proceedings. Advisor to the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Armenia Gor Abrahamyan reported this.
To recall, on October 4, the MP personally submitted an application to the Prosecutor General demanding a criminal legal assessment of the actions of the Constitutional Court's President Hrayr Tovmasyan.
According to him, in 2018, in order to appoint Tovmasyan to this position, gross violations of the law were committed, which actually led to usurpation of power. So, Hrayr Tovmasyan, who was elected to the parliament of the sixth convocation in 2017, the day before of his appointment as a member of the Constitutional Court did not submit an application to resign. Thus, until January of the current year, that is, before the first meeting of the seventh parliament, he, according to Babajanyan, was both a MP and President of the Constitutional Court.
We add that the National Assembly of Armenia at the next meeting on October 4 adopted the initiative of the "My Step" ruling bloc to appeal to the Constitutional Court on early termination of the powers of the Constitutional Court's President Hrayr Tovmasyan. 98 MPs voted for the adoption of the initiative, with one against. The decision of the National Assembly serves as guidelines, since the final word will belong to the members of the Constitutional Court, which must decide on 2/3 of the votes.
