Nine MPs Provide Personal Guarantees to Have Sasna Dzrer Defendant Released from Trial Detention15:11, 8 June, 2018
Nine MPs have personally petitioned a Yerevan court to free Sasna Dzrer defendant Aram Manoukyan from detention while his trial continues.
The nine MPs – two from the Yelk Alliance and seven from the Tsarukyan Alliance – provided the court with personal guarantees that Manoukyan would not flee prosecution if released.
Inessa Petrosyan, a defense attorney in the case, told Hetq that the two Yelk Alliance MPs, Hayk Konjoyan and Alen Simonyan, paid a bond totaling AMD 1 million.
The court is expected to rule on the motion later today.
