Charges have been filed against Nune Margaryan, the mother of one of the six men convicted in the so-called Harsnakar case, who was sent to 12 years in prison in March.

Nune Margaryan is charged with contempt of court. If convicted, she will be put under arrest for 1-2 months and will have to pay a fine.

After a 12-day fight for his life, Avetyan died in hospital on June 29 without regaining consciousness. On March 24, the six men were sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment.
