The criminal case against Judge Davit Grigoryan of the Court of General Jurisdiction of Yerevan has been dropped. Grigoryan's lawyer Georgi Meliqyan on Monday wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"The unlawful criminal prosecution against Judge Davit Grigoryan demised today after a long illness, and the latter was acquitted (…). We offer our condolences to the SIS [Special Investigation Service] and the Prosecutor's Office," the lawyer wrote, in particular.
To note, Davit Grigoryan is the judge who made a decision on May 18, 2019 to release second President Robert Kocharyan from custody.
On July 26 of the same year, the then Acting Prosecutor General filed a petition on three counts with the Supreme Judicial Council to launch criminal proceedings against Judge Grigoryan along the lines of a criminal case being investigated on the grounds of official fraud.
And while Judge Davit Grigoryan was on vacation, a search was conducted in his office and it was sealed.
