YEREVAN. -- The Court of Appeal upheld the judgement of the first-instance court on remanding Armenia’s second president Robert Kocharyan, his attorney Hayk Alumyan told reporters.
Six prosecutors, including Prosecutor General Artur Davtyan, were participating in the hearings that commenced on November 27.
Kocharyan was charged with breaching Armenia’s constitutional order during the March 1, 2008 events in Yerevan.
The Court of Appeals canceled the decision of the first-instance court, but it was appealed by both sides. The Court of Cassation returned the case to the Court of Appeal.
Eight demonstrators as well as two servicemen of the internal troops were killed in the clashes between the opposition and the authorities on March 1 and 2, 2008. But no one had been brought to account for these deaths, to this day.
