During the two-day training seminar on “Selected issues of new Criminal and Criminal Procedure Codes of Armenia,” 16 participants had the opportunity to acquire new skills on judicial review, peculiarities of conducting certain types of proceedings, judicial safeguards of pre-trial proceedings, as well as on different types of compulsory measures.
The second half of the seminar was dedicated to discussions on the general conditions and release from criminal liability, punishment, security measures and confiscation of property, as well as criminal liability of legal entity. Concrete examples and short case-studies were prepared for each topic of the seminar that greatly facilitated interaction among the participants and the trainers.
Anna Margaryan and Davit Melkonyan, two members of the former working groups that were tasked to prepare the new Codes, delivered the sessions of the training seminar. Welcome remarks were delivered by Yegishe Kirakosyan, Representative of Republic of Armenia before the European Court of Human Rights. The training seminar was held in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia.
The seminar was organised in the framework of the project “Supporting the criminal justice reform and harmonising the application of the European standards in Armenia," funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe in their Partnership for Good Governance II 2019-2022.
