The Prosperous Armenia Party leader, MP Gagik Tsarukyan's lawyers will file an appeal on Thursday, lawyer Emin Khachatryan told Armenian News -

According to him, the prosecution did not overcome the minimum threshold of reasonable doubt.

"The court was not provided with evidence that our client is connected to this criminal case," Khachatryan added.

Yerevan court of general jurisdiction has earlier denied the petition to arrest Prosperous Armenia Party leader Gagik Tsarukyan who is charged with obstructing the will of voters through electoral fraud. Tsarukyan doesn’t accept the charge and views the case against him as unlawful.

The Prosecutor's Office will appeal the decision.

According to the National Security Service statement, taking into account the public interest in fully solving the aforesaid crimes, the NSS also expects to receive public aid, and therefore it urges Armenian citizens to immediately notify the body conducting the proceedings if they have any information about this case.
