ArmInfo. On May 25, the Cassation  Court of Armenia acquitted Masis Ayvazyan, who was convicted in the  March 1 case. Thus, Ayvazyan was found not guilty of the act  incriminated to him.

To recall, the corresponding cassation appeal was earlier filed by  Prosecutor General of Armenia Arthur Davtyan. Ayvazyan was convicted  in 2008 under part 1 of Article 316 of the RA Criminal Code for  participating in protests on March 1, and sentenced to conditional  imprisonment for 1 year and 6 months.  Meanwhile, during the checks  it turned out that the constitutional and conventional rights of the  accused to a fair trial were violated.

In October 2018, by the decision of the European Court of Human  Rights, the Government of Armenia, in the framework of the case on  March 1, 2008, undertook to allocate compensation in the amount of  4,500 euros to Masis Ayvazyan. According to the decision of the  European Court of Human Rights, parts 1 and 3 of Article 5 of the  European Convention on Human Rights have been violated against Masis  Ayvazyan. It was also noted that the deprivation of liberty of Masis  Ayvazyan was unreasonable and did not have a proper base.
