May 28, 2020 | Congratulatory Message of Hrayr Tovmasyan, President of the Constitutional Court on the Republic Day

Dear compatriots,

 

We warmly congratulate you on the Republic Day.

 

It is difficult to overestimate the message of the day, namely, the restoration of the independent statehood, national revival, incorporation of the heroic image of the Armenian nation, who faces the new challenges as a state-organized nation.

As Paruyr Sevak said: "... generations, get to know yourselves beginning from Sardarapat!"

I do strongly believe that this is not only about acknowledging our past, but also about instituting our present and building our future with the awareness and identification of the glorious past. A future that will belong to our people - a vibrant, consolidated and powerful homeland and a strong statehood.

Long live the independent and strong Republic of Armenia!

 

 

HRAYR TOVMASYAN

President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia

 

May 8 , 2020 | Congratulatory Message of Hrayr Tovmasyan, President of the Constitutional Court on the Day of Victory and Peace, Liberation of Shushi and the Day of the Defense Army of the Republic of Artsakh

Dear compatriots,

 

I warmly congratulate you on the triple event of May - the Day of Victory and Peace, Liberation of Shushi and the Day of the Defense Army of the Republic of Artsakh.

There is no doubt that the Armenian people have played a decisive and unique role in the victory of the World War II. Today we commemorate and honour our brave compatriots, our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents who fought valiantly in the battlefields of the World War II, and bow our heads to the memory of all the victims of the Patriotic War and, of course, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the great victory.

At the same time, on May 9, 1992, the Armenian people celebrated another great victory - liberation of Shushi and formation of the Defense Army of the Republic of Artsakh. The liberation of Shushi was, in fact, a pan-Armenian victory and a revival, which announced worldwide that the Armenian people are unbreakable and united in their struggle for survival, security and peace.

 

Dear compatriots,

 

Once again, I would like to congratulate us on this triple celebration and wish our heroic victories to be irreversible and our achievements to be strong and lasting.

Peaceful sky and prosperity to the two Armenian states.

February 20, 2020 | Congratulatory Message of Hrayr Tovmasyan, President of the Constitutional Court on the Day of Renaissance of Artsakh

 

ТO THE PRESIDENT OF THE ARTSAKH REPUBLIC

MR. BAKO SAHAKYAN

 

Dear Mr. Sahakyan,

 

On behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia, let me warmly congratulate you on the Day of Renaissance of Artsakh.

This day is highly symbolic for the modern history of the Republic of Armenia and for all Armenians, as it has provided the framework for the national revival and marked the start of a renewed wave of national identity awareness. Gradual expansion and intensification of this wave led to the great Armenian victory in the Artsakh struggle, which resulted in the formation of a democratic and sovereign Artsakh Republic.

Highlighting the importance of the day, I once again congratulate you and the Armenians of Artsakh and wish you peace, strong boundaries, fortitude and progress in the consolidation of democracy and the rule of law in the Republic of Artsakh.

 

With respect,

 

HRAYR TOVMASYAN

President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia

 

February 6, 2020 | Congratulatory Message of Hrayr Tovmasyan, President of the Constitutional Court on the 24th Anniversary of the Constitutional Court

Dear Compatriots,

 

Today, February 6, 2020 marks the 24th anniversary of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia. As the guardian of the Constitution and responsible for ensuring constitutionality, the Constitutional Court has, since its inception, ensured and continues to ensure calling to life and implementation of the values, principles, human rights and fundamental freedoms enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia.

By their daily impartial work the judges of the Constitutional Court contribute to the safeguarding of the important principles of the Constitution - the rule of law, the realization of the principle of equality before the law, and thereby guarantee the establishment of the rule of law state.

Let the Constitution serve at all times as an important document of the rule of law and every citizen of the Republic of Armenia be protected by the rule of law.

 

HRAYR TOVMASYAN

President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia

 

January 28, 2020 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the Armenian Army Day

Dear Compatriots,

 

I would like to congratulate on the Day of Armenian Army. It is not only a good opportunity to express our gratitude and congratulations to our servicemen, soldiers, officers and generals but also to recall the glorious records of the Artsakh war, protection of the borders of Armenia, independence and freedom of our country, each episode of which is a unique act of pride and heroism.

The Armenian Army is the achievement of the fight and combined efforts of our people and each new success of the armed forces sums up our national aspirations and quest for a democratic and rule of law state.

This day has become festive at the expense of the lives of our sons. Eternal glory to our courageous sons who sacrificed their lives to their Motherland.

This day is a festive day for our soldiers and officers thanks to whom our borders are impregnable. I wish vigour and peaceful service to all our servicemen.

God bless you.

December 10, 2019 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the on the occasion of the Day of Human Rights, the Day of Independence Referendum and Constitution Day of the Artsakh Republic

Honorable Mr Sahakyan,

 

On behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia, we congratulate you on the Day of Human Rights, the Day of Independence Referendum and Constitution Day of the Artsakh Republic.

This is a great opportunity to recall and highlight once more the most important achievements of the Artsakh Republic since the independence referendum and to state that today the country has truly been established as a robust democratic state grounded on the greater understanding and respect for the importance of fundamental human rights and freedoms and rule of law.

Adoption of the Constitution has certainly played a key role in the establishment of statehood and self-determination of Artsakh as a basis for the formation of a number of constitutional legal institutions of the country, and, therefore, it is impossible to overestimate today's guidance and their triple importance for the Republic of Artsakh.

We wish you and the Armenian people of Artsakh blue skies, secure borders, immense courage and fortitude to preserve and strengthen the democratic foundations and rule of law.

October 3, 2019 |

Dear Compatriots,

 

The process of suspending my powers as a Judge of the Constitutional Court initiated by “My Step” faction of the National Assembly pursues, in essence, a political and subjective goal. The events preceding and following this process lead to such a conclusion, in particular:

- the Prime Minister Pashinyan's call made on May 19, 2019 to block entrances of the courts, including the Constitutional Court, was implemented on May 20 with the active participation of the representatives of the ruling political force, including members of the National Assembly;

- in case of holding the office by the President of the Constitutional Court, "the self-proclamation" of the newly elected Judge of the Constitutional Court V. Grigoryan as a President of the Constitutional Court at the session of the National Assembly on June 20, 2019 and an open endorsement by the political majority of the National Assembly;

- subjective comments, personalized approaches and initiatives periodically voiced by the ruling political force on the future tenure of the President of the Constitutional Court and the judges of the Constitutional Court,

- inappropriate expressions with respect to the Constitutional Court and me, in person, and the statements offending the authority of the judiciary made by the Prime Minister N. Pashinyan in the interview with Radio Liberty on July 17, 2019;

- the announcements and assessments made by the Speaker of the National Assembly A. Mirzoyan and the Prime Minister N. Pashinyan regarding the decisions of the Constitutional Court rendered on September 16, 2019,

- ungrounded references to my name with respect to criminal cases filed against different persons,

- on September 23, 2019 V. Vardanyan, Chairman of the Standing Committee on State and Legal Affairs of the National Assembly sent me an official invitation to participate at the session of October 24, 2019 although the session was held on September 24, 2019 which indicates the absence of intention to hold an impartial discussion on the issue.

In view of the above-mentioned circumstances, I do not consider it appropriate to participate in the discussion of the draft of the decision on suspending the powers of Judge Hrayr Tovmasyan held at session of the National Assembly

I apologize to the deputies of the Prosperous Armenia faction of the National Assembly for not providing them the possibility to ask questions during the debate of the National Assembly.

July 5, 2019 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the on the occasion of the Day of the Constitution and State Symbols

Dear Compatriots!

 

On behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia, congratulations on the Day of the Constitution and State Symbols.

The Constitution is the backbone of the state and serves as the basis of the rule of law. The Constitution is the safeguard and guarantee for sustainable development, security of the state and smooth functioning of the state institutions.

The fight for the establishment of a national state was the biggest dream of our people and it is inextricably linked with the establishment of the rule of law. Implementation of the rule of law is binding for each and everyone and is the highest value not only for the incumbent government, but also for every citizen.

The Constitution of the Republic of Armenia is the only legal basis from which the legitimacy of the entire public authority stems.

It is my considered opinion that it is possible to build a strong, democratic and developing Armenia only in conditions of the rule of the Constitution and laws, but not on emotions. I am deeply convinced that we should be guided by this idea and build a common developing state based on the principle of separation of powers and mutual respect.

Our people won the right to constitutionality, and today, on the Day of the Constitution and State Symbols, we were honored to congratulate each other for the glory of the Republic of Armenia and the RA Constitution.

May 28, 2019 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the on the occasion of the Republic Day

Dear Compatriots,

 

I would like to congratulate you on the occasion of the Republic Day. 101 years ago, the Armenian people regained their right to have an independent state as a result of long struggle and overcoming difficulties. The first Republic, despite the short period of its existence, demonstrated the loyalty of the Armenian people to democratic values, as well as the determination to establish state institutions in challenging conditions and consolidation around statehood. The foundation of the First Republic of Armenia has largely conditioned the existence of the modern Armenia, strengthening of which is our sacred duty and mission for the establishment of the sovereign, democratic, social and legal state.

Once again, I congratulate on this nice event and wish that the new Armenian Republic, which we inherited as a result of the past achievements, our people's challenging struggle and glorious victories, will overcome all the challenges and difficulties and offer a bright path for our children and future generations.

 

Let me congratulate all of us on this great celebration. I wish a peaceful sky and efficient and fruitful work.

May 9, 2019 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the Victory and Peace Day, the Day of commemorating the Artsakh Republic Defense Army and the Liberation of Shushi

Dear Compatriots,

 

I would like to sincerely congratulate you on the Victory and Peace Day, the Day of commemorating the Artsakh Republic Defense Army and the Liberation of Shushi.

World War II was a serious challenge for many peoples of the world, including the Armenian people, who strongly contributed to the victory in the Great Patriotic War.

At the same time, after May 9, 1992, this date is of great importance to our people. The Liberation of Shushi and formation of the Artsakh Republic Defense Army once again reaffirmed the unshakeable will of the Armenian people to protect national security, peace and fundamental rights and freedoms.

 

Dear Compatriots,

 

Let me congratulate all of us on this great celebration. I wish a peaceful sky and efficient and fruitful work.

February 6, 2019 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the 23rd anniversary of formation of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia

Dear Compatriots,

 

On February 6, 2019 we celebrate the 23rd anniversary of formation of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia. We state proudly that since its formation, the Court has contributed to the construction of the legitimate state in Armenia, promoting the rule of law, strengthening democracy and protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms.

We are convinced that ensuring the supremacy of the Constitution for granting continuous performance of the pivotal function of contemporary democratic and legal states, on the one hand, guaranteeing the continuity of functioning of the Constitutional Court and, on the other hand, turning estimation, principality and impartiality of new developments into an everyday and self-assumed realities, may substantially contribute to solution of the problems, which the Republic of Armenia faces, and enhance legal security in the state.

December 7, 2018 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on Spitak earthquake

Dear compatriots!

 

Three decades have passed since the day of tragic Spitak earthquake. During this period, we were forced to overcome many other challenges and to live through many difficult days, but I am convinced that the images of the terrible earthquake of 1988 have been clearly preserved in the memory of each of us. Unfortunately, Armenia has not yet been able to recover fully from this blow. And this was impossible as we are still suffering from the pain of loss of our loved ones, victims of this disaster.

Today we honor the memory of people who became victims of the harshness of nature, people who were supposed to live and create in our homeland, people who were our brothers and sisters, sons and parents. May the Lord rest their souls in peace, and give us the strength and will to finish with honor what they started.

On this Day of Remembrance, on behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia and on my own, I voice my sympathy to the families and friends of the victims of the Spitak earthquake.

 

God Bless Armenia.

October 2, 2018 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the demise of Charles Charles Aznavour

With great sadness we learnt about the death of Charles Aznavour, the great Frenchman, the distinguished son of the Armenian people and the Armenian national hero. We are experiencing great sorrow for this loss, by which an entire epoch of a few generations full of perfection and art has come to an end.

At this grave moment, on behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia and myself, I would personally like to express my sincere condolences and support to his family and all his relatives.

Charles Aznavour was a great symbol of the Armenian-French friendship and for decades made a huge and undeniable contribution to its strengthening, both with his art and diplomatic activity.

We salute to his memory and the heritage that will forever remain both in our history and in our hearts.

I once again express my sincere sympathy and deepest respect to the family and friends of the great musician.

September 21, 2018 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message on the occasion of Independence Day

Dear compatriots!

 

Congratulations to all of us on the Independence Day! 27 years ago on this day, the Armenian people made their choice in favor of independent Armenian statehood, in favor of democracy and political freedoms. The Republic of Armenia is a centuries-old dream of all Armenians and a solid foundation that will ensure the inevitable and continuous development of our national statehood. We are continuing to move forward in guaranteeing fundamental freedoms and constitutional human rights, ensuring the rule of law and strengthening civil society. I wish all of us peaceful activities for the benefit of our families and our statehood.

 

Congratulations again on the Independence Day!

 

Long live the Republic of Armenia!

September 2, 2018 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Message to the President of the Republic of Artsakh Bako Sahakyan

TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ARTSAKH
Mr BAKO SAHAKYAN

 

Dear Mr. Sahakyan!

 

I congratulate you on the 27th anniversary of the independence of the Artsakh Republic! September 2, 1991 is one of the most important pages of the modern Armenian history, when the Armenian population of Artsakh declared its independent statehood. Over the past twenty-seven years, Artsakh has become a free, sovereign, legal and democratic State where human rights and fundamental freedoms are respected, and the rule of law is proclaimed as the basis of social and constitutional legal relations. Over the past decades, you have proved to yourself and to all Armenians that a free Artsakh is not only a viable State, but also has great potential for comprehensive development. On this wonderful day, we once again bow our heads before the bright memory of those who died for the freedom of Artsakh.

 

Long live free and independent Artsakh!

 

Long live the Artsakh Republic!

 

Sincerely,

 

HRAYR TOVMASYAN

President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia

July 5, 2018 | President Hrayr Tovmasyan's Congratulatory message on Constitution Day

 

Dear compatriots!

 

Allow me on behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia and on myself to congratulate on the Constitution Day and State Symbols!

Today we are all witnesses of the consistent implementation of the democratic values enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia, paving the way for strengthening the legitimate State grounded on the rule of law.

I am convinced that henceforth human dignity, rights and fundamental freedoms of a person and a citizen are not just nice words, but a living reality.

Dear compatriots! It is gratifying to see how the State Symbols of the Republic of Armenia reinterpret and receive the new democratic content: the tricolor flag, emblem and anthem, which for more than a century have symbolized the independent statehood of Armenia, personifying our country and all Armenian people.
