Advisor to the Prosecutor General of Armenia Gor Abrahamyan today posted the following on his Facebook page:
Abrahamyan particularly wrote the following:
“I would like to clarify that no new motion has been filed with the court to select arrest as a pre-trial measure against leader of Prosperous Armenia Party Gagik Tsarukyan.
During tomorrow’s court hearing, the court will examine the motion that was rejected by the first instance court, and the Prosecutor General’s Office had appealed the decision on rejection to the Court of Appeal, which had rendered a decision on partially granting the appeal of the Prosecutor General’s Office, overturning the judicial act of the first instance court and sending it to the same court for new examination.
The fact of the matter is that the Court of Cassation has rendered a decision on not accepting for proceedings the appeals filed by the Prosecutor General’s Office of Armenia and the defense against the decision of the Court of Appeal, that is, the decision of the Court of Appeal has entered into force, on the basis of which the first instance court has designated a court hearing to examine the motion again.
In this sense, the press releases about a predetermined outcome of the to-be-held court hearing, as well as the manipulative attempts to politicize the absolutely legal procedure and presenting it in the light of certain political statements are unacceptable.”
