I just thought about checking to see if the European Court of Human Rights has already examined the application on dismissal of a judge, and it only took me five minutes to clarify the issue. Yes, the European Court has already examined the issue (See EGMR, 19.10.2010, Özpinar ./. TUR, Nr. 20999/04, Z. 67ff). This is what constitutional expert Gor Hovhannisyan wrote on his Facebook page.
“The specified decision literally states that, in case of dismissal of a judge, there must be an opportunity to challenge the dismissal to an independent and impartial state body in order to avoid arbitrary dismissals. This is exactly what I was discussing with my German colleagues. Armenia will not provide the 7 judges of the Constitutional Court with that opportunity in case of dismissal and will unequivocally lose in the European Court,” former candidate for member of the Constitutional Court wrote.
