Tigran Yegoryan was reprimanded

Advocate Tigran Yegoryan was reprimanded for having left the court room during the trial of “Zhirayr Sefilyan and others” case. Tatevik Grigoryan, the judge of the Court of General Jurisdiction of Ajapnyak and Davitashen Administrative Districts of Yerevan, on October 27, 2017, gave only 30 minutes to Tigran Yegoryan in order he could file a motion of withdrawal, even though he had asked her for three days to do that.

The fefender left the court room. The judge considered this to be a disrespectful attitude and filed a motion in the Chamber of Advocates. In disciplinary case No. 17188of the Chamber of Advocates, the advocate was found guilty on the grounds of violating the requirements of Chapter 4.1 of the Code of Advocate’s Ethics and he received a reprimand.

The decision will be forwarded to the parties within 20 days and it may be appealed to the court.

By the way, during the disciplinary proceedings, video recording was prohibited, and recording was only permitted.
