ArmInfo. In a normal country, after such a press conference Ruben Vardazaryan would already be looking at the sky through prison bars. A similar opinion was expressed to  ArmInfo by head of the Armenian Institute of International Relations  and Security Stepan Safaryan.

Yesterday, the Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Ruben  Vardazaryan (powers suspended), as evidence of the political  motivation of the criminal case initiated against him, presented a  recording of his conversation with acting Chairman of the Supreme  Council Gagik Jhangiryan. During which Jhangiryan persuades his  interlocutor to leave the post under the guarantee of the absence of  criminal prosecution in the future. According to adviser to the  Prosecutor General of Armenia, Gor Abrahamyan, the recording was sent  to the Investigative Committee "for a complete, objective and  multilateral verification."

"Vardazaryan's testimony against himself is extremely surprising. I  can't say to what extent with this recording he harmed Jhangiryan,  but I can say that he definitely drowned himself. One thing is clear,  the Supreme Judicial Council must be dissolved with such leadership  and such judges, completely, and as soon as possible. With such a  composition of the Supreme Court of Justice, it simply has no right  to exist. The street lexicon, the swear words of these people are a  real disaster for the judicial system. Not to mention their actions  themselves," he believes.

Safaryan noted that according to the same recording, it is only  Jhangiryan who prevents the initiation of all three criminal cases  instead of only one criminal case against Vardazaryan. Accordingly,  in his opinion with such radical steps, Vardazaryan is trying to drag  all the other people associated with his dark deeds to the bottom.  According to Safaryan, there are a lot of cases, which are on  Vardazaryan's conscience. Several of which he is preparing to publish  personally.

"One way or another, we learned a lot from the recording: About the  Supreme Judicial Council, about the Armenian judicial system as a  whole, about Jhangiryan, about Vardazaryan himself, about the judge  of the Court of Cassation Stepan Mikayelyan, about how Jangiryan  "suspended" the criminal cases, about how Jhangiryan organized the  army service of Artur Vanetsyan. And I can only guess how many  criminal and civil cases and lawsuits were " suspended " in this way  by these "most worthy representatives" of our "fairest" judicial  system in the world," Safaryan summed up.   -sh-
