ArmInfo."I warn you, do not dare to dance near the devil", - said on March 4 at the session of the RA National Assembly, independent MP Arman Babajanyan, commenting on his yesterday's polemic with the Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Ruben Vardazaryan.
The deputy saw in yesterday's statements by the head of the ARIA threats against him. "Do not take me to fear, 2.5 years ago, being in captive, I sat with thieves in law and criminal authorities, "Babajanyan said. He also stressed that everyone knows who patronizes the current composition of the judicial system. "So sit still and go about your business, we will come for you, "the deputy threatened.
In turn, the Chairman of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan noted that if the deputy saw threats against him in Ruben Vardazaryan's speeches, he can send a message to the relevant structures.
It should be reminded that on the eve of the plenary session of the National Assembly of Armenia, debates unfolded around the chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Ruben Vardazaryan and his statement of November 15, 2020. In his statement, Vardazaryan urged judges not to succumb to pressure from political circles. The statement coincided with a court hearing on the arrest of the former director of the NSS and Vardazarian's longtime friend, ex-head of the NSS Artur Vanetsyan. Recalling this statement, on the eve of the NA deputy Arman Babajanyan stated that by this appeal the head of the ARIA did not even suspect what he had "gotten himself into". He noted that everyone knows who exactly brought Vardazaryan to the Supreme Judicial Council. In response, the Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council stated that he intends to apply to the Ethics Commission or the Parliamentary Council in order to bring Arman Babajanyan to disciplinary responsibility. "From the moment when I stop being a judge, I will answer you in your own words and even more sharply," Vardazaryan said.

The Supreme Judicial Council has nominated Samvel Grigoryan, Armen Haykyants and Arsen Mkrtchyan were nominated for the position of one of the judges of the Court of Cassation.
