Today in the Kentron General Jurisdiction Court chaired by Judge Mnatsakan Martirosyan, a hearing was held on the election of a preventive measure against the head of the PAP Gagik Tsarukyan. Yerem Sargsyan informed that the lawyers petitioned for Judge Matrirosyan's recusal.
The judge retired to his consultative chamber to decide on the recusal. The lawyer stressed that, most likely, the decision will be made public at 1:30 pm.
"In this case, the main petition for our request was the information that as a result of the intervention of some officials, the Court of Cassation dismissed our petition to consider the case, and it was returned to the court of general jurisdiction. We received facts about the reliability of this information. Also, doubts are raised by the fact that the Court of Cassation rejected our petition after just 3 days. Initially, everything possible was done to hand over this case to Judge Martitosyan. Moreover, everything possible was done so that the petition for Tsarukyan's arrest was granted. Everything happens very quickly, the goal is one - to arrest Gagik Tsarukyan as soon as possible, " Yerem Sargsyan emphasized.
