"I don't need Serzh Sargsyan's amnesty," said former RA Deputy
Prosecutor General Gagik Jhangiryan in response to the rumors about
Serzh Sargsyan's speech on amnesty. "I have said that my friends and
I don't need amnesty. Let them declare amnesty, if they need it. The
ones who need it are the criminals. This is all an act and it's going
to come to an end."

During the trial presided by Judge Zhora Vardanyan the defendant's side
declared an arbitration. Gagik Jhangiryan's attorney Lusine Sahakyan
demanded the court to provide her with information on what the judge
had permitted regarding the operative investigation on the sidelines
of article 300. The judge rejected the arbitration and explained that
he had nothing to do with the criminal case.

Afterwards, the defendant presented a rejecting arbitration. The judge
went to the consultation office to discuss the arbitration and will
declare his decision on October 6 at 2 p.m.
