Ministry of Justice: The solution to the Constitutional Court crisis  lies in the early retirement of its judges 

ArmInfo.The civilized way to solve the crisis in the Constitutional Court is the early retirement of the judges of the Constitutional Court. Minister of Justice of  Armenia Rustam Badasyan expressed such an opinion in an interview  with journalists on October 21 noting that the Justice Ministry has  already developed a bill that will soon be discussed in the  government and then will be sent to the National Assembly.

Speaking about the model of transitional justice, the minister said that it  does not have the punitive goal, in particular, the initiation of  criminal cases, but rather aims to give a certain assessment of  election fraud or illegal deprivation of property, restoration of the  rights of victims, which can be expressed in cash or other  reimbursement.

Speaking about the confiscation of illegally acquired property, the  minister said that exclusively civil law instruments would operate in  this matter, which did not have any connection with the criminal law  influence. "This is a means by which it is possible to return  illegally seized property to the state or the victim, that is, it is  not punitive. If someone has stolen property and worries now, he does  it right - let him continue to worry until he returns all the  property '', the minister said.

Badasyan also emphasized that this is not about rich people. ''We  respect and urge them to further enrich themselves legally, pay taxes  to the state, and prosper. We are talking about those people who  acquired property through corruption, and this property is subject to  confiscation'', Badasyan summed up.
