DEPUTY MINISTER OF JUSTICE NOT TO GO TO EUROPEAN COURT
The authorizations of Alvina Giulumyan, the judge from Armenia in
the European Court of Human Rights, will expire this October. At that
time, the authorities of Armenia must nominate three candidates for
a position of a judge whose candidacies will be discussed at the
Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE). PACE will select
one judge from each country.
Recently information was disseminated in the media that Deputy Minister
of Justice Gevorg Kostanyan, one of the candidates of Armenia, will
leave for interview to the European Court instead of Alvina Giulumyan.
Kostanyan refuted the information in a conversation with Panorama.am
correspondent. Asked if he considers himself a possible candidate,
Kostanyan said: "No, taking into consideration Alvina Giulumyan’s
authority and preparedness in practice. Besides, she did not make
rough mistakes. It is worth that she continues."
