The court hearing of the "gang case" by the general jurisdiction court of Kentron and Nork-Marash districts in Yerevan will be held on October 15. The chairman is Judge Mkhitar Papoyan.
Today's hearing lasted five minutes. The accused Artush Hakobyan, David Galstyan, Samvel Davtyan, Arman Dallakyan, and Arthur Manukyan were brought into the courtroom. The sixth accused, Kyaram Amoyan, was absent: he was not brought from the convicts' hospital. Judge Papoyan announced that he had received a Russian-language note from the doctor who did not recommend Amoyan to attend the court hearing. The judge also said that he will make inquiries at the convicts' hospital to find out whether Amoyan was not fit to attend today's hearing or the other hearings as well.
