Top judge threatens with libel suit, Pashinyan vows to disclose incriminating facts

Top judge threatens with libel suit, Pashinyan vows to disclose incriminating facts

YEREVAN, JANUARY 25, ARMENPRESS. Shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan revealed at a press conference that Constitutional Court President Hrayr Tovmasyan has offered him “his services” to collude in some unspecified matters, the top judge reacted and claimed that the premier’s statement is a lie.

Tovmasyan said in a statement that the PM’s accusations are “fake slander”.

“From this moment on, I will patiently wait for 20 days for Pashinyan to disclose any objective fact, any reliable evidence supporting his statement. Otherwise I will request my lawyers to file a defamation lawsuit against Nikol Pashinyan,” Tovmasyan had said.

Shortly afterwards, Pashinyan fired back at Tovmasyan.

“As soon as I reach Yerevan I will disclose Hrayr Tovmasyan’s anticipated objective, reliable fact,” Pashinyan said on Facebook from Kapan, an Armenian town where he was delivering a news conference today. “But please don’t blame me in giving an unproportionally stronger counterblow. I didn’t want to: you forced me,” Pashinyan said.
