ArmInfo. Lawyer Amram Makinyan denied the SIS information that a search was being conducted in the house of the head of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan. In an interview with reporters, Makinyan stated that the search had not yet begun. According to the lawyer, a search should be carried out in Tovmasyan's apartment by the court's decision, but it didn't start, as the head of the investigation team violates the rights of his client.
"Everything that happens is unprecedented, for the first time the lawyer is not allowed to read the court decision. And it does not even substantiate why the lawyer cannot read this decision," the lawyer emphasized.
Makinyan emphasized that the rights of lawyers should be fully realized. "We both in writing and verbally requested that we be given the opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the decision and make it a photocopy. We have the right to appeal the court decision, but how can we appeal it if we do not have a photocopy. Appeal the decision to 4- 5 pages from memory, what kind of practice is this? ", The lawyer emphasized.
"Investigative actions begin after reviewing the court decision. The rights of the head of the Constitutional Court are again violated," concluded Makinyan.
It should be noted that in the morning he said that in the house of Tovmasyan a search was being carried out. Tovmasyan is charged under Article 308 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia (abuse of power, resulting in negligence with grave consequences - Ed). The CCC explained that speech it is about the same criminal case in which the godson of Tovmasyan Norair Panosyan was indicted. Earlier, the investigation established that the former employee of the Ministry of Justice of Armenia Norayr Panosyan, occupying the post of head of the Legislation Inspection Inspectorate in the Ministry of Justice in 2011-2014, together with a number of other officials, deprived two notaries of the opportunity to register their work premises for free use. Panosyan wanted to purchase these premises himself. To do this, he agreed with the employees of the Ministry of Justice and the City Hall of Yerevan, who organized fictitious auctions for the sale of these premises, at prices significantly lower than market prices. In particular, the territory at the 1st dead end of Baghramyan Avenue, with a market value of 63.4 million drams (about 133 thousand dollars), was sold for 47.5 million, and on Bagratunyats Street, worth 33.5 million (70 thousand dollars) ), - for 3.8 million. These territories belonged to the Municipality of Yerevan, which as a result received less income, and notaries lost their free territory for work. Also detained was an employee of ZAO "Land and Real Estate Operations> Tigran Ter-Harutyunov, who gave an underestimated assessment of real estate. Norayr Panosyan was previously arrested, but subsequently, by decision of the Court of Appeal, he was released.
