Nine MPs Provide Personal Guarantees to Have Sasna Dzrer Defendant Released from Trial Detention

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.
