On December 22, 2017 the RA Administrative Court announced the ruling on the case of protester Vahram Petrosyan.
It should be reminded that the RA Police demand to hold V. Petrosyan liable under the requirements of Article 180.1 (11 and 15). And, in a counter-claim, V. Petrosyan and his representative T. Siradeghyan, lawyer at HCA Vanadzor Representative Office in Yerevan, demand to recognize as unlawful the RA Police actions of dispersing the assembly, arresting V. Petrosyan and using physical force.
Initially pronouncing the decision was scheduled for October 27, 2017. However, due to the judge’s busyness, it was adjourned, and on October 30 the Court announced about recommencing the proceedings.
Upon the decision of December 22, the Court rejected the claim by the RA Police and partially upheld the counterclaim by the protester and his representative. In particular, the Court recognized as unlawful the police actions of arresting V. Petrosyan and using physical force against him.
