New charges brought against Armenia's second President
2019-02-12 20:42:32

The Special Investigative Service has brought new charges against Armenia’s second President Robert Kocharyan.

Kocharyan is charged under part 2 of Article 311.4 of the Criminal Code of Armenia for taking a bribe in a large amount.

The second President was previously charged under Article 300.1 for overthrowing the constitutional order during the March 1 unrest that followed the presidential elections of 2008 and saw 10 people killed.

Last week the Court of Appeals upheld the decision of a lower court to extend Robert Kocharyan’s term of detention.
