No proceedings will be initiated against judges that patronize hate speech

 

“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 was unlawful behaviour towards PM Hayk Babukyanyan, representative of ruling Republican Fraction

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. The Committee has made a decision not to initiate a disciplinary proceedings against judges that patronize hate speech.
