YEREVAN. – I have never been pressured by the former Armenian authorities. Yervand Khundkaryan, one of the candidates for a judge of the Constitutional Court—and who is nominated to this post by the General Assembly of Judges—said this during the debates on the candidacies for judges of the Constitutional Court at Monday’s session of the National Assembly of Armenia.
Khundkaryan added that otherwise, he and any other judge would have been obligated to raise the matter at the Supreme Judicial Council.
According to him, he headed the civil and administrative chambers of the Court of Cassation from 2010 to 2018, and in that period there was no mechanism of pressure on him by the then authorities.
