Court hearing on Kocharyan’s case postponed for technical reasons
YEREVAN, JUNE 30, ARMENPRESS. The court hearing over the case of former President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan and other ex-officials has been postponed for technical reasons.
At the beginning of the session Yuri Khachaturov’s attorney Mihran Poghosyan said he has contacted with the COVID-19 infected person and is going to be tested.
The attorneys proposed to ensure the social distance, but the prosecutors stated that this demand aims at freezing the process.
Judge Anna Danibekyan listened to the views of all sides and stated that the existing technical problems cannot be solved immediately, therefore the session was postponed for another week.
The next court hearing will take place on July 7, at 13:00.
Robert Kocharyan has been charged with overthrowing Constitutional order during 2008 March 1-2 events in Yerevan.
The case also includes former defense minister of Armenia Seyran Ohanyan, former chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Yuri Khachaturov and former chief of staff of the Presidential administration Armen Gevorgyan.
