Artsakh Presidents Arrive in Yerevan to Personally Vouch for Ex-President Kocharyan
Today’s the fourth day of former Armenian President Robert Kocharyan detention hearing.
Artsakh President Bako Sahakyan and former Artsakh President Arkadi Ghukasyan came to the court to give their personal guarantees, and a 500,000-dram payment each, that Kocharyan would behave properly if released.
Kocharyan, who served as president of Armenia from 1998 to 2008, has been charged with usurping state power in March 2008, during post-presidential election protests, and accepting US$ 3 million in bribes.
Ten people died during the protests, culminating on March 1-2, 2008, and scores more were injured when police and army units were mobilized to disperse demonstrators.
