How can you judge 4 people on 4 episodes based on the evidence of 1 person? And in 3 episodes no witness saw any face, there`s no evidence. This was stated by the Cambridge graduate Aram Mughalyan during today`s sitting of the Court of appeals.
“There`s one videotape, and the expert says that neither the car numbers, nor the people are visible there, it is uncertain what kind of car it is”.
Aram Mughalyan also said that the Prosecutor`s office tried to “tailor” the charges of unrevealed case of the victim`s brother`s hayrick burning on them as well.
At today`s sitting the defendant`s lawyer presented evidence on the unlawfulness of the court ruling and requested to overturn the decision and make a decision on excuse.
