Armenia's Judicial System: Pretrial Detention for $400 Robbery

While large amounts of funds are allocated every year to reform the judicial sector in Armenia, and promises made in that regard, progress has been long in coming.

Officials continue to claim that pretrial detention is vital, and the courts have taken up the call. Detaining those accused of crimes, even petty ones, has become the norm.
