YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd daily of Armenia writes: Noteworthy situation in terms of the decision of the European Court of Human Rights [(ECHR)]. The thing is that yesterday, the European Court of Human Rights ruled in the case of "Nikol Pashinyan v. Armenia" that [incumbent PM] Pashinyan's right to freedom and personal inviolability, freedom of assembly, and the state's duty to respect his rights were violated.
Let us note that this case refers to the imprisonment of opposition figure Pashinyan at the time, which took place after the 2008 [presidential] elections, when he was supporting [then] presidential candidate [and First President] Levon Ter-Petrosyan.
It is interesting that the judgments of the ECHR regarding the incidents [that occurred in Yerevan] in 2008 have become more active after the revolution that took place [in Armenia] three and a half years ago. Another decision from the ECHR had come in September last year—again based on Pashinyan's application, but this time there was no financial demand.
And now a question really arises: Why did the ECHR rulings one after the other happen now?
