YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd newspaper of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: Dark clouds are gathering over the head of Gevorg Baghdasaryan, a close circle of RA former Prosecutor General Artur Davtyan, prosecutor in the criminal case of [ex-President] Robert Kocharyan.
According to the information received by Zhoghovurd daily, he will write a letter of resignation in the near future. The thing is that he has created the impression at the Prosecutor General’s Office for a long time that he is a high class prosecutor, and since he assumed the duties of the prosecutor in the case of Robert Kocharyan, he is untouchable.
Moreover, according to our sources at the prosecutor's office, he has created an image in the [prosecutorial] system that the political authorities are at his side. But the situation has changed with the appointment of Anna Vardapetyan [as Prosecutor General]. Deputy Prosecutor General Gevorg Baghdasaryan was made aware that, [despite] being a "high class lawyer", he failed the charge brought against Robert Kocharyan in the "March 1" case, as the CC [(Constructional Court)] found it unconstitutional.
Let us add that the seeds of the process of Gevorg Baghdasaryan's dismissal are already noticeable at the prosecutor's office. One of his closest circles has been transferred from the prosecutor's office of Yerevan city to the province—making it clear that former manners are over.
