Mushegh Shushanyan received next notice of warning

Mushegh Shushanyan, an advocate in the criminal case of the “Sasna Tsrer”, received the next notice of warning.

The grounds for that was Artush Gabrielyan, the judge of the Court of General Jurisdiction of the Erebuni and Nubarashen administrative districts, had filed a motion on subjecting Mushegh Shushanyan to disciplinary sanction. On 14 September, 2017, the court decided to subject Mushegh Shushanyan to sanction, as he had refused to be examined before to enter the court building for his attendance in the trial.

Mushegh Shushanyan and a group of other advocates refused to open their bags, claiming that they were being searched instead of examined. They stated that the problem could be resolved only when scanning devices were installed in the courts.

Advocates in the case of the “Sasna Tsrer” claimed that the court bailiffs discriminated against some defenders, stating that they had some forbidden objects in their bags.

Yet, the Board of the Chamber of Advocates decided to recognize Mushegh Shushanyan guilty for violating the advocate’s code of conduct. He was subjected to warning.

The Board of the Chamber of Advocates did not allow the video filming.
