YEREVAN. – Armenia’s second President Robert Kocharyan on Tuesday met with his supporters at the yard of the Yerevan court, before the resumption of the criminal case against him and several other former senior officials
Supporters greeted him with applause and chanting, "Kocharyan, hero!"
"I have come to thank you for your active support; it gives [me] both strength and endurance. But I must also say that this senseless trial will last quite a long time. I have said that Tuesday is deleted from my calendar because it is a meaningless day, and I do not want it to be the same in your calendar, too. I ask you not to stand in the Sun, just go home. This meaningless trial has entered a routine; it will last a long time. Please do not delete your Tuesday from your calendar, deal with more important affairs," Kocharyan said, and, thanking his supporters, entered the court.
