Jailed Armenian ex-President set to be released soon

May 18
Second Armenian President Robert Kocharyan will be released from prison as an investigation into a criminal case over an 11-year crackdown continues in the country. Kocharyan, who was the President of Armenia in 1998–2008, is accused of overthrowing the constitutional order and money laundering. The first case is related to the crackdown on civilians who were protesting the results of the presidential election in March 2008. At the time, ten people were killed in clashes between protesters and the police, about 200 were injured. Kocharyan was first arrested and released in summer of 2018, but was incarcerated again on December 7 of that year. Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) President Bako Sahakyan and his predecessor Arkadi Ghukasyan had submitted a motion to the court, guaranteeing that Kocharyan, when freed, will not hinder the investigation of the case and will not refrain from appearing in court.
