The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has received the petition of Armenia’s Constitutional Court requesting an advisory opinion over the criminal case involving Armenia’s second President Robert Kocharyan.

The petition was filed to the court based on the applications of the Yerevan Court of General Jurisdiction and Robert Kocharyan.

The ECHR has listed the petition among cases subject to priority examination, the Constitutional Court said in a statement.

Earlier on 18 July, the court said it was seeking advice from the European Court of Human Rights and the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe over the case on determining the compliance of Article 300.1 of the Criminal Code with the Constitution of Armenia.
