Judge Anna Danibekyan is guided by double standards with respect to second President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan. This is what lawyer Hovhannes Khudoyan declared today.
According to Khudoyan, with its previous decision on the motion for release on bail, the court acknowledged the absence of suspicions about evasion from investigation, but believed there are suspicions about pressure on the court procedure.
“Currently, bail is applied by law in light cases. However, in practice, it is also applied with respect to heavy cases since human rights are more primary. Courts apply the European practice despite the fact that it contradicts national legislation,” Khudoyan said.
In this context, the lawyer recalled that Judge Anna Danibekyan has applied bail in similar cases in the past. “Here we see double standards,” the lawyer stated, adding that this is the second time that the court is overlooking the decisions of the Constitutional Court.
