ArmInfo. On December 9, the court granted the prosecutor's motion to recuse the judge of the Court of Appeal Mkhitar Papoyan.

To recall, he considered the complaint of the lawyers of the former president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan, protesting against the court decision of November 7 on the  refusal to change the measure of restraint from arrest to bail.  It  should be added that the basis for the petition of the prosecutors  was the recording of one Facebook user, according to which judges  David Grigoryan and Mkhitar Papoyan participated in the drafting of  the decision to release Robert Kocharyan from arrest. The NSS is  engaged in verification of this information; Papoyan himself calls it  slander.

Earlier, Kocharyan criticized the motion to recuse Judge Papoyan,  saying that the goal for it was to neutralize, as he put it,  unpredictable judges for certain individuals investigating specific  criminal cases.  Robert Kocharyan is being accused in the March 1,  2008 case.
