ArmInfo.The public of Armenia knows only about 10% of what the government actually does. President of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan stated this on January 24 in a conversation with reporters, commenting on the position of the former head of the National Security Servicel, Artur Vanetsyan, regarding his assessment of the events surrounding the Constitutional Court.
"Former head of the NSS Arthur Vanetsyan hinted about this, and I'm sure that the honor of the officer will not let him be quiet. When he says everything, the public will know when these processes began, which, in particular, were discussed with me and much more. And if I am silent about everything that is happening, it's only because I care about the international authority of the country, "Tovmasyan emphasized.
When asked whether Tovmasyan was not going to resign after all that had happened, the latter remarked: "After everything that happened, do you continue to ask me this question?"
The head of the Constitutional Court also emphasized that everything that happens around his personality is exclusively political. "The fact that I refuse to testify is a consequence of the fact that there is no legal basis in all of this, only a political one," Tovmasyan said, noting that he did not speak, and does not intend to speak with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan around all this.
It should be noted that former head of the National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan on January 15 on his Twitter wrote: "My warning about the dangers threatening the country's security was also connected with the events that take place around the Armenian Constitutional Court."
