Subpoena for attendance executed: Court siiting delayed


Subpoena for attendance executed: Court siiting delayed
[02:46 pm] 27 February, 2009

On February 27, 2009, the Criminal Court of Yerevan resumed the court
hearing on the case of Vardan Jhangiryan, the brother of ex Deputy
Prosecutor General Gagik Jhangiryan. Jhangiryan was brought to court
by bailiffs.

Today’s court sitting was suspended because of the absence of the
Accusant Koryun Piloyan. Judge Mnatsakan Martirosyan explained
Piloyan’s non-attendance by the latter’s working load.

Vardan Jhangiryan has been subpoenaed though the police escort knew
that the trial would be suspended. This is a brilliant example of
torture against Jhangiryan. They are well aware that Jhangiryan needs
rest cure and any movement is painful for him. Today the court was to
discuss Jhangiryan’s transportation to Germany for a thorough
examination and treatment,’ says Advocate Lusine Sahakyan. The
advocates are going to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights as
`Jhangiryan’s health is aggravating day by day.’

Remind that Vardan Jhangiryan suffers from vertebral tuberculosis. His
health further aggravated after receiving a missile wound during the
detention on February 23.

The advocates have petitioned the court to discontinue the case
because of the defendant’s ill health but the judge in the case,
Mnatsakan Martirosian, has rejected all motions.

The next court sitting is scheduled for March 17.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
