ArmInfo.The court hearing scheduled for January 21 in the case of second President of the Republic of Armenia Robert Kocharyan and others is again postponed due to the fact that the lawyers of Kocharyan and former Deputy Prime Minister Armen Gevorgyan did not appear at the hearing.
They explained their position by the court's improper attitude to the threats voiced by one of the victims, who had previously stated: <Speak more respectfully on March 1, otherwise you will find yourself:>, but the continuation could not be heard, since the defense side expressed its protest. Judge Anna Danibekyan promised to study the record of the court session, but subsequently stated that she did not find any threats to the lawyers in the record.
On January 14, the hearing was also postponed because, due to the aforementioned threats, lawyer of the former CSTO Secretary General Yuri Khachaturov, Mihran Poghosyan, also refused to participate in the trial.
This position of absent lawyers will be discussed at the next meeting, which will be held on February 4 at 1:00 p.m. .
It should be noted that second President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan was charged with overthrowing the Constitutional system in the framework of the events of March 1, 2008.
