Today, on July 12, 2017, the General Jurisdiction Court of Kentron and Nork-Marash Administrative Districts of Yerevan started examination of the claim of HCA Vanadzor’s staff members against the payments set by the RA Law on the Compensation for Damage to Life or Health of Servicemen during Protection of RA.
Note that the HCA Vanadzor’s staff members applied to the Court on March 21, 2017. The claim provided grounds that the Republic of Armenia enriched itself without any grounds in the sense of the RA Civil Code by violating the RA citizens’ privacy right prescribed by the Constitution and that the Law contradicted the RA Constitution.
HCA Vanadzor also applied to the RA Human Rights Defender on challenging the constitutionality of Article 10 of the Law setting out the mandatory nature of the stamp fee but the he refused to apply to the Constitutional Court.
Today’s court hearing was attended by the plaintiffs’ representative A. Chatinyan, lawyer at HCA Vanadzor, N. Amatuny, representative of defendant RA Government, and M. Santrosyan, representative of the RA Ministry of Defense.
The plaintiff party presented the substance and grounds of the claim and then the RA Defense Ministry’s representative M. Santrosyan stated that the Defense Ministry was not a proper defendant and asked the Court to declare the Defense Ministry an improper defendant. Plaintiff Ani Chatinyan objected to it, and then said that the plaintiff was going to motion the Court to suspend the case proceedings and file a motion with the RA Constitutional Court and asked the Court to postpone the hearing so that she might file the motion.
The next court hearing will be held on October 13, 2017, at 2:30 pm.
