Judicial Code provision on evaluation of judges goes against logical structure of judiciary: Hayk Martirosyan

TIAC legal expert Hayk Martirosyan spoke to “News” of Armenia’s public television about the government’s plans with regard to vetting of judges and changes to the Judicial Code of the country. According to the TIAC expert, the government basically does not plan on conducting a vetting of judges, since the third component of vetting – integrity assessment – refers only to the candidates to become judges.

Hayk Martirosyan also finds it concerning that a provision on the evaluation of the basis of the judicial act made by judges has been included in the draft changes to the Judicial Code. “This contradicts the logic of the structure of the judicial system, according to which the extent of how substantiated a judicial act is may only be evaluated at the next judicial instance,” insists Martirosyan.
