Speaker: The issue of resignation of Hrayr Tovmasyan from the post of  head of the Constitutional Court has never been our number one task

ArmInfo. The issue of the resignation of Hrayr Tovmasyan from the post of head of the  Constitutional Court has never been the number one task for us.  President of the Armenian Parliament Ararat Mirzoyan stated this to  reporters on November 14.

"This issue has never been for us either task number one or task  number five," he emphasized. At the same time, Mirzoyan noted that he  had not changed his opinion, and still believes that there is a  crisis inside the Constitutional Court. "I insist on it," he said.

To recall, on October 14, the Constitutional Court rejected the  consideration of the case of depriving Hrayr Tovmasyan of his duties  on the basis of a statement from the parliament. Meanwhile, the  Investigative Committee issued a statement about the factual evidence  of abuse committed by Hrayr Tovmasyan during his tenure as head of  the Ministry of Justice.

For its part, the Special Investigation Service reported that there  is factual evidence that in March 2018, in the process of Gagik  Harutyunyan's resignation as President of the Constitutional Court,  officials, based on group interests, personally and also through  non-officials committed an official forging to appoint Hrayr  Tovmasyan to the post of head of the Constitutional Court. In fact, a  criminal case was opened against usurpation of power, within the  framework of which charges were brought against former Speaker of the  Parliament Ara Babloyan and former head of the Parliament's apparatus  Arsen Babayan.
