According to Pastinfo newspaper’s insiders at the National Security Service of Armenia, Judge Vahagn Melikyan of the Yerevan court of general jurisdiction in Avan Administrative District was summoned to the National Security Service where officers showed him a personal video and demanded that he uphold the new motion of the State Revenue Committee to arrest former Ambassador of Armenia to the Holy See Mikayel Minasyan, regardless of procedural violations.

Pastinfo tried to receive a commentary from Mikayel Minasyan’s attorney Mihran Poghosyan, but the latter stated that he didn’t know anything about the new motion regarding the arrest, and later it was impossible to contact him.

The Criminal Court of Appeal of Armenia had overturned the court’s decision on selecting arrest as a pre-trial measure against Mikayel Minasyan against which the Prosecutor General’s Office had filed an appeal.
