ArmInfo. On November 12, the lawyers of the RA National Assembly former MP Manvel Grigoryan submitted a motion on recusal of Judge Mnatsakan Martirosyan. According to lawyers, the judge demonstrates bias when considering the case of both Grigoryan himself and his wife Nazik Amiryan.
The petition was criticized by the prosecutor, who, calling it unfounded, reminded that the state of health of Manvel Grigoryan, according to expert opinion, allows him to attend court hearings.
