Ministry of Justice answered the application of “New Generation”




“New Generation” Humanitarian NGO members Arman Sahakyan and Grigor Gevorgyan applied to Minister of Justice RA Arpine Hovhannisyan, asking her to initiate disciplinary proceedings against judges of the Court of Appeals Narine Barseghyan, Levon Grigoryan and Margarita Hartenyan.

The reason is unlawful behaviour towards PM Hayk Babukyanyan, representative of ruling Republican Fraction

Recently the response letter was received from the Ministry of Justice.

“Study has shown that the application does not contain any basis for gross violation of the Judicial Code Article 153, part 2, paragraph 2, of the Republic of Armenia”, noted in a letter sent from the chief of staff of the Ministry.

Note that the same application has been sent to the Ombudsman of RA. In response, it was noted that the application of Arman Sahakyan and Grigor Gevorgyan was re-directed to the General Assembly’s Ethics and Disciplinary Committee of the RA.
