Dear Compatriots,

 

The process of suspending my powers as a Judge of the Constitutional Court initiated by “My Step” faction of the National Assembly pursues, in essence, a political and subjective goal. The events preceding and following this process lead to such a conclusion, in particular:

- the Prime Minister Pashinyan's call made on May 19, 2019 to block entrances of the courts, including the Constitutional Court, was implemented on May 20 with the active participation of the representatives of the ruling political force, including members of the National Assembly;

- in case of holding the office by the President of the Constitutional Court, "the self-proclamation" of the newly elected Judge of the Constitutional Court V. Grigoryan as a President of the Constitutional Court at the session of the National Assembly on June 20, 2019 and an open endorsement by the political majority of the National Assembly;

- subjective comments, personalized approaches and initiatives periodically voiced by the ruling political force on the future tenure of the President of the Constitutional Court and the judges of the Constitutional Court,

- inappropriate expressions with respect to the Constitutional Court and me, in person, and the statements offending the authority of the judiciary made by the Prime Minister N. Pashinyan in the interview with Radio Liberty on July 17, 2019;

- the announcements and assessments made by the Speaker of the National Assembly A. Mirzoyan and the Prime Minister N. Pashinyan regarding the decisions of the Constitutional Court rendered on September 16, 2019,

- ungrounded references to my name with respect to criminal cases filed against different persons,

- on September 23, 2019 V. Vardanyan, Chairman of the Standing Committee on State and Legal Affairs of the National Assembly sent me an official invitation to participate at the session of October 24, 2019 although the session was held on September 24, 2019 which indicates the absence of intention to hold an impartial discussion on the issue.

In view of the above-mentioned circumstances, I do not consider it appropriate to participate in the discussion of the draft of the decision on suspending the powers of Judge Hrayr Tovmasyan held at session of the National Assembly

I apologize to the deputies of the Prosperous Armenia faction of the National Assembly for not providing them the possibility to ask questions during the debate of the National Assembly.
