YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–President Robert Kocharian continued a reshuffle of his security cabinet on Monday–dismissing four district prosecutors in Yerevan.
The presidential decree followed last week’s unexpected removal of Prosecutor-General Aram Tamazian and over a dozen high-level staff changes in the Armenian police. Kocharian met with the leadership of the national Police Service on Friday. Speaking to reporters earlier in the day–he said the role and prestige of the Prosecutor’s Office having decreased under Tamazian–needs to be restored in order to strengthen the rule of law.
"It must be restored with the help of people who have the skills to do that," he said–promising more replacemen’s in the law-enforcement agency.
