Activists disrupt Kocharyan’s conference in Yerevan

Armenia’s former president Robert Kocharyan, who was scheduled to convene a  press conference today following his release from pre-trial detention, had to cancel it after a group of Armenians broke into the conference hall of Erebuni Plaza in Yerevan.

Then, the group of protesters headed to the Prosecutor General's Office to demand that it appeal the ruling of the Court of Appeals at the Court of Cassation, ARKA reported.

On July 26, Kocharyan was charged with toppling constitutional order in 2008. A Yerevan district court late on July 27 ruled that the Special Investigative Service (SIS) could hold Kocharyan for 2 months in pre-trial detention pending investigation.
