YEREVAN. – An independent judicial system shall function in Armenia; any kind of meddling is impermissible.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Tuesday stated the aforesaid during his Facebook livestream broadcast, as he reflected on the developments that are taking place in the judiciary system of the country.

“An independent judicial system shall exist in Armenia, and one of its important conditions is the [respective] political will; subsequently, the creating of [corresponding] institutional guarantees,” he said, in particular. “We will not go on the ‘road’ of judicial dictatorship; to analyze the situation and to distinguish the right from the wrong is important to us.”

Pashinyan stressed yet again that he has nothing to do with court decisions.
