ECHR issued verdict in case of  "Pashinyan v. Armenia"

ECHR issued verdict in case of  "Pashinyan v. Armenia"

ArmInfo.The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) issued a verdict in the case of "Nikol Pashinyan v. Armenia". The decision published by the court notes that  the verdict is final, but editorial changes may be made to it.

Thus, the document recalls that Pashinyan filed a complaint against  the Republic of Armenia, in accordance with Article 34 of the  Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental  Freedoms, on April 1, 2010 and September 9, 2010, respectively.

"The case concerns the applicant's conviction for his participation  in the protest movement following the disputed presidential elections  of 19 February 2008 and raises issues under Articles 5, 10 and 11 of  the Convention.

In particular, the applicant (then opposition figure Nikol Pashinyan)  complained about the legality of his detention between 12 October  2009 and 19 January 2010 and about the interference with the  applicant's right to freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful  assembly", the Court said in a statement.

The verdict of the ECHR recognizes that in the case "Pashinyan v.  Armenia" there was a violation of Article 11 of the Convention  (Freedom of assembly and association) and Article 5 1 of the  Convention (Right to liberty and security of person).

Thus, the court found a violation of Pashinyan's rights in terms of  freedom of speech, personal integrity and freedom of assembly.

The current Prime Minister of Armenia has not filed a claim for  monetary compensation against the state.

It should be noted that as a result of clashes at opposition rallies  that followed the presidential elections in Armenia in 2008, in which  Serzh Sargsyan won a de jure victory, 10 people died on March 1. The  investigation into the case is still ongoing. Second president of  Armenia Robert Kocharyan and a number of high-ranking officials of  that time are under investigation on charges of overthrowing the  constitutional order under the current government. However, last year  the court dropped the charges under Article 300.1 of the Criminal  Code of the republic (the overthrow of the constitutional order in  2008) against the defendants Robert Kocharyan, Yuri Khachaturov,  Armen Gevorgyan and Seyran Ohanyan on the basis of the absence of a  crime.

Current Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was an active supporter of  Levon Ter-Petrosyan. After the events of March 1, 2008, Pashinyan was  convicted on charges of organizing mass riots for 7 years, and after  2 years in prison, was released.
