The second court hearing of the case into the murder of the Avetisyan family also will be convened at the 102nd Russian Military Base in Gyumri city of Armenia’s Shirak Province.
Shirak District Court of First Instance informed the abovementioned to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
They said that nothing has changed.
This means that the second hearing, which is slated for January 18, again will be held in the small hall of the military base, and which has a very limited space for the victims’ legal successors, several relatives, and members of the media.
After the first hearing that was held on December 18 of the year past, the attorneys had said the hall conditions were “inhuman.”
The media representatives likewise were dissatisfied with the conditions that were provided to them.
Six members of the Avetisyan family—including a two-year-old girl—were shot dead, and a six-month-old baby—Seryozha Avetisyan—was wounded in their house in Gyumri on January 12, 2015; but the baby boy died in hospital one week later.
Valery Permyakov, a serviceman of the 102nd Russian Military Base in the city, is charged with these murders.
Armenia and Russia instituted criminal cases on charges of murder and military desertion, respectively.
On August 12, the Russian court sentenced Permyakov to ten years in prison.
And on October 16, Armenia formally brought criminal charges against the Russian soldier.
The respective trial began on December 18.
