Hrayr Tovmanyan does not have a procedural status: Deputy Prime  Minister commented on the resonant criminal case

ArmInfo.President of the Constitutional Court, Hrayr Tovmanyan, does not have a procedural status in the criminal case, under which his father was previously  called to the NSS for clarification. RA Deputy Prime Minister Tigran  Avinyan announced this on October 21.

<A criminal case was opened on a specific fact, and to clarify all  the circumstances, certain people are invited to the National  Security Service. We will follow the course of this case from a legal  point of view>, Avinyan noted.

Answering a question regarding whether this situation has a political  context, the Deputy Prime Minister called for a return to reality and  recall the processes surrounding the election of the President of the  Constitutional Court. <I would not want every process that is in the  field of law enforcement to be considered as political persecution. I  get the impression that we forget what happened in the past. I am  sure that at the moment the Constitutional Court has a problem of  legitimacy, which should be resolved, because of it the  Constitutional Court cannot act in the full range of its powers>, he  stressed, pointing out the need to find appropriate solutions.

To recall, the father of Hrayr Tovmasyan gave explanations on the  fact of obvious abuses and outstanding work in 2012-2014 during  construction work on the restoration of the building on Zaqyan Street  in the amount of 855 million drams, as well as repair work in the  Abovyan Penitentiary Institution and near one of the capital's  schools in the amount of 15 million drams.
