Preliminary investigation into criminal case involving Ara Babloyan  completed

ArmInfo.The preliminary investigation in the criminal case was completed, in which former Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia Ara  Babloyan and former Deputy Head of the Staff of the National Assembly  of the Republic of Armenia Arsen Babayan are accused. According to  the Special Investigation Service, the case with the indictment has  been transferred to the supervising prosecutor with a motion to send  it to court.

Earlier, the Special Investigation Service reported that there is  evidence that in March 2018, in the process of Gagik Harutyunyan's  resignation of the powers of the President of the Constitutional  Court, officials, based on group interests, personally and also  through non-officials committed official forgery, to appoint Hrayr  Tovmasyan to the post of head of the Constitutional Court.

So, former head of the Constitutional Court Gagik Harutyunyan, whose  term of office (70 years) was supposed to end on March 23, 2018,  signed a statement addressed to the NA Speaker Ara Babloyan on the  resignation of the post of the President of the Constitutional  Council, which was dated March 1, 2018. Then NA Speaker Ara Babloyan,  having not officially received this statement by Gagik Harutyunyan,  illegally signed and made a statement on March 2 on the resignation  of Gagik Harutyunyan, head of the Constitutional Court. Otherwise,  the President of the National Assembly would not have been able to  announce the resignation of the President of the Constitutional  Assembly before the next ordinary sitting of the National Assembly on  March 20, 2018.

It should be noted that in the conditions of observance of the  three-day period provided for by the law, after that it would be  impossible to appoint Hrayr Tovmasyan as the head of the  Constitutional Court, since before this a regular meeting of the  National Assembly was not provided. As a result, favorable conditions  were created for the process of nominating and appointing Hrayr  Tovmasyan to the vacant post of head of the Constitutional Court.

Ara Babloyan is charged under part 1 of article 300 and part 1 of  article 314 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia, and  Arsen Babayan is charged with part 1 of article 38-300 and part 1 of  article 314 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia.
