The next sitting of the court in the Permyakov trial is scheduled for January 18.
The trial has been adjourned.
Avetisyan family lawyers want to make a petition about relocating the trial to another location – an Armenian court – before deciding whether to “challenge” the judge. They say it is not appropriate to conduct the trial in the territory of a Russian military base and in the presence of Russian servicemen. The lawyers want the petition to be discussed today before they trial is adjourned.
The counsel for the defense asked for 30 working days to get familiarized with the case files. Representatives of the legal successors of the victims said they did not object, since they considered it important to provide all necessary conditions for proper defense in the case. One of them at the same time asked for “normal” conditions to be provided at the next sitting of the court.
