Armenia 2nd President Robert Kocharyan leaves penitentiary
The second President of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, leaved Saturday a National Security Service penitentiary in capital city Yerevan, News.am reported.
As reported earlier, a Yerevan court on Saturday ruled for the release of Kocharyan from pretrial custody, and based on a respective personal pledge.
Robert Kocharyan is charged with breaching the constitutional order of Armenia—and in connection with the tragic events that occurred in Yerevan, in March 2008—and, by using his official position, taking a particularly large bribe. His attorneys, however, maintain that these charges are groundless and a political persecution is carried out against him with this “fabricated” case.
