YEREVAN.- The ex-president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan commented on the charge brought against him by the Special Investigation Service during the interview with Yerkir Media TV channel.
According to the second president, the case is fabricated, it has political connotations, accusation has nothing to do with reality. "It is the dangerous moment for the country. It is a bomb planted under statehood bases that will inevitably explode. The legal system is in great danger, "
Kocharyan denied any wrongdoing and said he doesn’t accept the charges.
“It was the decision of the Constitutional Court which acknowledges the legitimacy of the elections and this is final. Before pressing such kind of charges against me, at least half of the Central Electoral Commission should’ve been jailed, it should’ve been proved that they had committed fraud and have committed a crime while making a decision. There should’ve been some kind of acts, solutions, punishments and others at least regarding the Constitutional Court,” the former president said.
Kocharyan is charged with paragraph 1 of Article 300.1 of the Criminal Code (breaching Constitutional order).
