On October 25, 2016, the RA Administrative Court, presided by judge K. Avetisyan, carried on examination of the case Svetlana Sargsyan v. RA Military Registration and Enlistment Office and RA Defense Ministry. Note that at the previous pre-trial court hearing the Court compelled the representative of the RA Defense Ministry to provide certain clarifications and the court hearing was postponed on these grounds.
The court hearing was attended by plaintiff S. Sargsyan, her representative Tatevik Siradeghyan, lawyer at Yerevan Office of HCA Vanadzor, Manik Santrosyan, representative of the RA Defense Ministry and Nara Baghdasaryan, representative of the State Social Security Service of RA Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, involved in the case as a third party. Respondent RA Military Registration and Enlistment Office did not ensure the presence of its representative at the court hearing and the Court decided to carry on the hearing in the absence of the properly notified Party.
In response to the Court’s clarifying question, the plaintiff’s representative answered that she received the respondent’s objection and submitted to the Court her written position thereon.
Then in response to the Court’s question, M. Santrosyan, representative of the RA Ministry of Defense, said that the inquiry to the RA Military Registration and Enlistment Office on termination of the right to receive the pension remained unanswered and the information on it in the plaintiff’s administrative appeal was based on the provisions in the RA Defense Minister’s Order.
The Court tried to find out which agency was responsible by law for recovery of the terminated payment of pensions. In her answer to this question, the representative of the State Social Security Service of RA Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs said that based on the pension file sent by the agency that assigned the pension, starting from January 1, 2015 the bonus payment was paid by a relevant service of the RA Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs by adopting an administrative act. She also said that upon examination of the pension file, the Service might review the assignment of bonus payment.
Considering that clarification of the type of claim required certain clarifications from the RA Military Registration and Enlistment Office, the Court ruled to postpone the court hearing and assign it on November 14, 2016, at 11 am.
