There is no doubt that Armneia's second President Robert Kocharyan will appear in freedom, head of second president’s office Viktor Soghomonyan said at a news conference after the publication of court’s decision.

According to him, the decision to arrest Kocharyan is agreed with narrow, personal interests. 

He described the criminal case, the “personal vendetta,” and stressed that he has no doubts that Robert Kocharyan will appear in freedom.

Earlier it was reported that the Court of Appeal upheld the judgement of the first-instance court on remanding Armenia’s second president Robert Kocharyan.

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.
