Supporters of Armenia’s second president Robert Kocharyan held a protest rally outside the Court of General Jurisdiction in Yerevan on Tuesday, according to local media.

The protesters blocked the avenue, chanting “Nation, army, victory!”

Today the court is holding a session on the criminal case against Khocharyan and former senior officials. Kocharyan is accused of dispersing the 1 March 2008 protests and overthrowing the constitutional order in the country.
