The Constitutional Court of Armenia has accepted for proceedings the application of the Office of the Human Rights Defender on the absence of mechanisms for restoring a right in case of violation of the requirement for case examination in a reasonable period, as reported the Division for Procedural Decisions of the Constitutional Court.

The decision of the Constitutional Court particularly states the following:

“1. The case for determining the compliance of Article 9 of the Constitutional Law “Judicial Code of the Republic of Armenia” with the Constitution shall be accepted for examination, in accordance with part 1 of Article 28 of the Constitutional Law “On the Constitutional Court”, based on the application of the Office of the Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia.

2. The trial over the case shall begin on April 28, 2020 at 11:00, in accordance with part 3 of Article 28 of the Constitutional Law “On the Constitutional Court”.

3. Judge A. Dilanyan of the Constitutional Court shall be designated as speaker under the case, in accordance with part 3 of Article 28 of the Constitutional Law “On the Constitutional Court”.

4. The trial over the case shall be held through written procedure, based on part 7 of Article 68 of the Constitutional Law “On the Constitutional Court”.

5. The body having adopted the specified law — the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia — shall be involved in the trial as a respondent under this case, in accordance with part 5 of Article 68 of the Constitutional Law “On the Constitutional Court”.”

In 2019, the Office of the Human Rights Defender had applied to the Constitutional Court, challenging the issue that the Constitutional Law of the Republic of Armenia “Judicial Code of the Republic of Armenia” does not provide for a flexible mechanism for properly ensuring the constitutional requirement for examination of cases in courts in a reasonable period.
