Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, in a Facebook post, has called for people to block the entrances and exits of all courthouses in the country starting at 8:30 a.m. on May 20.
Axar.az reports citing News.am.
Pashinyan, in his post, says the move is to exert public pressure on the courts and judges and demand accountability.
The prime minister disagrees with a Yerevan court’s decision to release ex-Armenian President Robert Kocharyan on bail pending his trial on charges of bribe taking while in office and usurping state power during the March 2008 post-election protests.
Pashinyan says he will make a public announcement tomorrow on the state of the judiciary in Armenia.
