Constitutional Court Reference Book Published

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)The publication of a Constitutional Court reference book coincided with the first anniversary of the establishment of the Constitutional Court of Armenia.

The book includes personal histories of the seven Constitutional Court members–clauses from Armenia’s Constitution pertaining to the Constitutional Court–as well as a number of decisions handed down by the Court.

The Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Armenia–Gagik Haroutunian–said that it wasn’t the only publication dealing with the Court’s activity.

The booklet–in Armenian–English and Russian–entitled "Law on Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia" has already been published in association with the US Agency for International Development. Publication of materials on constitutional rights–as well as Court activit,y for the general public is expected in the near future.

The most significant event of the past year was the establishment of the Constitutional Court as one of the major state institutions–Haroutunian said.

He added that thus far the Court has handed down more than one hundred decisions on various matters.

The creation of the Center for Constitutional Rights–under the aegis of the Constitutional Court– might serve as a proof of this.

Henrikh Khatchatrian–a member of the Court–told Noyan Tapan that the Constitutional Court was doing everything possible to implement constitutional control in Armenia.
