Armenia's Special Investigation Service has rejected the appeal of former Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s attorney Amram Makinyan to eliminate the decision on engaging Sargsyan as an accused-on-trial in the criminal case being investigated by the Special Investigation Service, head of the Public Relations and Information Department of the Prosecutor General’s Office Arevik Khachatryan said.

“The appeal was rejected upon the decision of the prosecutor overseeing lawfulness of the preliminary investigation of the criminal case, with the reasoning that the appeal is groundless," she said.

It was noted that those "actions have nothing to do with the status of the President of Armenia; thus, the constitutional guarantee for immunity is missing," reported.
