Appeals Court Turns Down Haroutiunian’s Arrest Protest

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The Court of Appeals on Criminal and Military Cases rejected the protest of lawyer Zhora Khachatrian against the decision to place his client–Deputy Director of the National Television Haroutiun Haroutiunian–under arrest.

The lawyer claimed the decisions made first by the lower court and then by the court of appeal to be ungrounded. He still believes the charges brought against his client to be insufficiently motivated.
