Let’s call things by their names. There is a person in Armenia who is ‘raping’ the Constitution. This is what Police Colonel Sayat Shirinyan told reporters today, talking about the changes taking place in the Constitutional Court.
“Nikol Pashinyan has been directly ‘raping’ the Constitution several times now, and he’s trying to turn people into accomplices so that he won’t be the only one sentenced to jail,” he said.
According to Shirinyan, Pashinyan has violated several articles of the Criminal Code over the past two years in order to achieve his goals. Shirinyan noted that the current parliament consists of deputies who are ready to complete their leader’s assignments and don’t remember anything. “Those 89 deputies were aware of the consequences, but they went ahead and adopted the amendments to the Constitution in a matter of hours,” he said, noting that he wouldn’t like to talk about the several violations that were made during the process since there have already been many discussions on that.
In regard to head of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Edmon Marukyan, Shirinyan said nobody doubts the fact that Edmon Marukyan is playing the opposition for Nikol Pashinyan.
Touching upon President Armen Sarkissian and his recent actions, Shirinyan said he is not the head of state since nobody understands what he is doing.
