Kocharian Terminates Powers of Two Judges

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–President Robert Kocharian Monday decreed to terminate the powers of Pargev Ohanian, a judge of a first instance court in Yerevan’s Kentron- Nork Marash district and Vazgen Lalayan, another first instance court judge in Yerevan’s Avan and Nor Nork district.
Earlier, Armenia’s Council of Justice had asked Robert Kocharian to terminate the powers of both judges after it found that they had committed "serious violations of Armenian law," while adjudicating on a number of criminal and civil cases.
