12.12.2017 | The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia has considered the arguments presented by the statement of the RA Prosecutor General to be justified

The RA Constitutional Court has examined the statement of the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Armenia, by which the correspondence of Article 296 of the Criminal Procedure Code of the Republic of Armenia with the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia has been contested. It has also been mentioned in the statement that the contested norms do not establish the procedural order for the prosecutor's duty to eliminate the drawbacks of the bill of indictment, neither do they envisage possibility to contest the unjustified decision of the court to return the criminal case to the prosecutor.

The Constitutional Court has emphasized that an unjustified and unenforceable decision to return a criminal case to the prosecutor hinders the criminal case process and limits the procedural rights of participants in the proceedings.

The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia has also considered as justified the argument that there is no procedural mechanism for eliminating the drawbacks of the bill of indictment.
