The defense of the Armenian second president Robert Kocharyan will do everything possible to restore his right to freedom and cancel his arrest, attorney Aram Orbelyan told reporters.
Commenting on the colleague’s opinion expressed the day before that the attorneys are ready to enter the stage of the debate even now, the attorney confirmed the opinion: "We will enter the debate stage with pleasure" but Robert Kocharyan should be freed.
"Kocharyan’s arrest is illegal," the attorney added.
According to the attorney, the defense side does not agree that the case may be in progress.
"There is no case as such. Described in the indictment cannot be the basis for the charge. The order and assembly are not grounds for accusation. They do not constitute a crime," the attorney said. "According to an European practice, a pledge cannot be applied only if the court has proved a high probability of pressure.”
According to Orbelyan, there are cases when persons on much more serious crimes are released on bail.
