ArmInfo. In a certain period, the judicial system of Armenia was involved in political processes. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated this in Jermuk during the "Yes" campaign for holding the referendum on April 5.
Referring to the court's decision to release the owner of the fifth television station, Armen Tavadyan, who was suspected of trying to bribe a witness in the case on March 1, 2008, the head of the Armenian government emphasized that the issue of the identity and decision of the judge was again raised in society in this regard. However, as Nikol Pashinyan noted, Armenia needs a judicial system in which there will be no room for such conversations. "At some point, the judicial system was clearly and unequivocally involved in political processes. Meanwhile, Our political approach is that should not be involved in politics, they should only do their work
Head of the Constitutional Court, Hrayr Tovmasyan, should not be involved in politics. If he wants to engage in politics, let him leave the office of the President of the Constitutional Court, and then engage in politics as much as he wants. What does it mean to be a judge for Kocharyan, for Pashinyan? ... If he supports someone, then he can be anyone, but not a judge," the prime minister said. On April 5, a constitutional referendum will be held in Armenia, at which the issue of judges of the Constitutional Court will be decided. According to the decision adopted on February 11 at the CEC meeting, the campaign will be held from February 17 to April 3.
