The former rector of Yerevan State Linguistic University after Valeriy Bryusov, Suren Zolyan, said at today's press-conference that he hopes that the verdict on his case will be attained correct as the judge is professional. The Appeal Court of Armenia will attain a verdict on Zolyan's case on 21 March. Certainly, Zolyan does not hope for fair verdict, but before appealing to the European Court on Human Rights he has to pass through local instances.
He also said that this court proceeding is a political order of the justice ministry and prime minister. "Plato said that the biggest crime is injustice against a state because of which states ruin. For this reason, if I think that our functionaries are criminals, as they are more dangerous than bandits, let them not to be offended, as our functionaries talk on behalf of Armenia but commit unlawful acts", - Zolyan said.
To recall, on 17 April 2012, Armenia's Education Minister Armen Ashotyan signed a decree according to which Suren Zolyan was dismissed from the position of rector of the University.
