Robert Kocharyan may undergo surgery
Former President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan was transferred to a civic hospital this morning for an examination.
Head of Kocharyan's office Viktor Soghomonyan said that the ex-president may undergo a minor surgery in the coming days.
"There are no particularly major problems [with his health]. I believe Mr. Kocharyan’s health will be fully restored within days after the surgery," News.am cited Soghomonyan as saying.
Kocharyan had been transferred twice before to the same Yerevan medical center for a checkup.
Ex-President Robert Kocharyan is charged with overthrowing the constitutional order in Armenia in connection with the events that occurred in Yerevan in March 2008, and taking a particularly large bribe. He has been remanded in custody three times within one year; the last one was on June 25, by the decision of the Criminal Court of Appeal.
