An incident took place between the attorney Yerem Sargsyan and Lyuks Stepanyan`s father Ishkhan Stepanyan. When Yerem Sargsyan was asking questions to expert A. Hambardzumyan, Lyuks Stepanyan`s father approached the lawyer and demanded not to ask such questions. The attorney was asking questions on the position of Lyuks` head and injuries.
As to Ishkhan Stepanyan, the attorney should not have asked such questions in the presence of a mother who lost her son. He made insulting comments towards the attorney.
Court officers invited Ishkhan Stepanyan out of the court room. The Court deprived him of the right to take part in the future court sittings. Presiding judge Zoya Zakinyan had to invite some of Ishkhan Stepanyan`s relatives out of the court room as well.
