The RA Minister of Justice Rustam Badasyan wrote on Facebook.
"The legislative package on the establishment of anti-corruption and appellate anti-corruption courts was adopted by the National Assembly in the first reading today.
The specialized anti-corruption court will have at least 25 judges, 20 of whom will hear cases of corruption crimes, and 5 - the cases based on the Law on Confiscation of Property of Illegal Origin. The Anti-Corruption Court of Appeal will have at least 10 judges (these numbers are not final).
All appointed judges will be vetted. As a result, the speed of case investigation will increase. Also the efficiency of the specialized investigation on corruption cases will increase”.
