YEREVAN. – The second motion to arrest Mikael Minasyan, Armenia’s former Ambassador to the Holy See, was denied. Amram Makinyan, one of Minasyan's attorneys, informed about this on his Facebook page.
"We will still have a chance to talk about the mentioned motion. I can only say [for now] is that it was more illegal and unfounded than the previous motion.
Are new motions expected to arrest Mikael Minasyan? I'm convinced that, yes.
Will they be more illegal and unfounded than the previous motions? I also have no doubt.
Will the [state-funded] Public TV company and RFE/RL, which are making videos about Mikael Minasyan—together with the investigative bodies, not cover for the second time in a row the denial of the motion to arrest Mikael Minasyan on the grounds that it is unfounded and illegal? The answer is painfully obvious," Makinyan added.
