Robert Kocharyan transferred to Yerevan-Kentron penitentiary

ArmInfo. The second president of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, was discharged from the Izmirlyan MC and transferred to the Yerevan-Kentron detention center.

As reported by the Armenian media, Robert Kocharyan has recovered and  is feeling well.  It should be noted that it was not possible to  confirm or deny this information in the office of the second  President of the Republic of Armenia at the time of its publication.

Recall that Robert Kocharyan was operated on October 9 at the  Izmirlyan MC.

On July 26, 2018, the Special Investigation Service of Armenia  charged Kocharyan with the overthrow of the constitutional system in  the framework of the criminal case on the dispersal of protests on  March 1, 2008. The ex-president is also charged with receiving bribes  on an especially large scale. Kocharian believes the charges are  trumped-up political persecution. In 2018, Kocharyan was arrested  twice. At the end of June, he was arrested for the third time. The  Constitutional Court of Armenia declared the article of the Code of  Criminal Procedure, which lists cases in which criminal prosecution  is not possible, unconstitutional and invalid. This decision was  taken in view of the fact that the article does not provide for the  inviolability of officials with special protection. Kocharyan's  lawyers filed a petition with the Yerevan Court of First Instance,  demanding his release, which was rejected.
