Kocharyan’s mansion and office searched
The employees of Armenia's Special Investigative Service searched former president Robert Kocharyan’s mansion and office.
"The mansion and the office are being searched as part of a criminal case launched against Kocharyan in connection with March 1-2, 2008 events in Yerevan," ARKA cited the SIS press-service as saying.
Kocharyan was arrested for two months by a local court, but was released from pre-trial custody on August 13. He was accused of violating Armenia constitutional order in March 2008. Kocharyan was released from custody after Armenia’s Court of Appeals ruled that he could not be prosecuted for the post-election violence. The ruling was backed by Article 140 of the Armenian Constitution.
