ArmInfo. The court hearing on the case of the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharian and others is scheduled for May 8. The lawyer of ex-head of state Aram Vardevanyan wrote about this on his Facebook page.
Meanwhile, the lawyer expressed his dissatisfaction with this fact, since the petition, according to him, is subject to immediate consideration, especially taking into account the current epidemiological situation. Recall that the request to change the measure of restraint of the ex-president from arrest to personal surety should have been submitted on March 17, however, on March 13, judge Anna Danibekyan presented a document on temporary disability, and therefore the court session did not take place. The defense has previously criticized the fact that no other judge was appointed to consider the application. We also add that former Prime Ministers of Armenia Vazgen Manukyan, Khosrov Harutyunyan, Karen Karapetyan and ex- Prime Minister of Artsakh Anushavan Danielyan are ready to make a guarantee. Robert Kocharian is being accused in the March 1, 2008 case. The charges were brought under Article 300.1 of the RA Criminal Code (Overthrow of the Constitutional System).
