YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 4, ARMENPRESS. Advisor to the Prosecutor General of Armenia Gor Abrahamyan commented on the decision of the Constitutional Court over Robert Kocharyan's case.
''I read the headlines of different news outlets and there is the impression that the Constitutional Court of Armenia has made a decision over a criminal case or has expressed opinion over the defense of his rights.
And this is only when the Constitutional Court has published only the final part of the decision, which means there is no complete decision yet.
The Constitutional Court cannot make a decision over any concrete criminal case. It is authorized to make a decision only regarding the constitutionality of the legal acts and their provisions.
It will be possible to speak about the cosnequences of the decision only after getting aquainted with the complete decison. We should not get ahead of time”, reads Abrahamyan’s statement, reports ARMENPRESS.
