YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd newspaper of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: On November 30, several representatives of the judiciary had met with RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
Zhoghovurd daily has learned details from that closed-door meeting. First, let us note that not all judges participated in the meeting with the Prime Minister. We learned that there are rumors in the judiciary that Pashinyan summoned to the meeting those judges from the courts many of whom have interests.
It turns out that mainly people who have some ambitions went to the meeting with the Prime Minister.
Thus, the judiciary has come to the conclusion that, specifically, people who have an interest or are dependent on something went to the meeting with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
And now they say at the judiciary that any decision by the presidents of these courts should be questioned, as the judges who went to the meeting with the prime minister can no longer talk about [judicial] independence.
