ArmInfo. During constitutional reforms in Armenia, the current state model will not be changed. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced on January 25 at a press conference.
He noted that the goal of constitutional reforms is to implement changes in the legal framework. "I do not set myself the goal to dismiss anyone. My goal is to create a truly independent judicial system in Armenia. Not a judicial system that takes advantage of the situation that the Prime Minister of Armenia and the government are not forcing them to anything and are trying to find those who will force them to something, " Pashinyan said.
According to the prime minister, the fact that today the judicial system of Armenia is on the path to recovery is encouraging. "There are people in the judicial system of Armenia, including the Constitutional Court, who were not involved in various processes. I am sure that they will not fight with their people. I believe that the judges of the Constitutional Court should not fight against their people and their future, " Pashinyan said.
To remark on whether the prime minister's visit to the SIS yesterday was related to the situation surrounding the head of the Constitutional Court, the prime minister emphasized that he visited the SIS yesterday as a witness. "I was called to the SIS in another case as a witness. As for whether I gave any tasks in connection with the Constitutional Court. What kind of tasks can there be? The fact is that situations can be different, including those related to internal security of the country. If we suddenly received information that a MP or judge is connected with foreign intelligence services, shouldn't we check this information based on the status of this person? Or if we get information about corruption, shouldn't we check it? I've got the information related to a person who is one of my relatives. This incident was investigated, sent to court, and the latter took the indictment. If similar situations occur in the case of my relatives, why do you think that I will turn a blind eye to such incidents involving other people, " prime minister wondered.
He emphasized that now the authorities are accused of not preventing the suicide of Georgy Kutoyan. "Does it seem to you that we should monitor different people in order to prevent their possible suicide? Let's not bring the situation to absurdity," Pashinyan said.
