Zhirayr Sefilyan didn’t want to turn up at court hearing

Criminal Court of Appeal has considered the decision on extending the period of detention of Zhirayr Sefilyan, leader of the Centennial without the regime movement, to be legal. The Court rejected the appeal by the defense side.

As advocate Tigran Hayrapetyan told “A1+”, Zhirayr Sefilyan didn’t take part in the court hearing, as he considers the court hearing to be a staging.

Recently the Court of General Jurisdiction of Yerevan Arabkir and Kanaker-Zeytun administrative districts expended the detention period of Zhirayr Sefilyan by a month and 4 days.

The preliminary investigation into the case has already ended. The case was sent to the Court of General Jurisdiction of Yerevan Ajapnyak and Davitashen administrative districts.
