YEREVAN. – The Yerevan court hearing on the criminal case against second President Robert Kocharyan and former deputy prime minister Armen Gevorgyan—who is now an MP of the opposition “Armenia” Faction in the National Assembly of Armenia—is resuming Tuesday.
In the previous session, presiding Judge Anna Danibekyan had denied the two motions of Gevorgyan's lawyers on the matter of his parliamentary immunity.
Earlier, the court had denied the motion to allow Gevorgyan to go abroad to attend the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE). According to the judge, it would be enough for Gevorgyan to remotely attend in this session.
At the same time, the court had set the next hearing for January 25, the day of the aforesaid PACE session, thus depriving Armen Gevorgyan of the opportunity to even remotely attend in this session.
