The trial was postponed today after the defendants rose to their feet and expressed their intention to remain standing for the duration of the trial.
After some discussion with the defendants, the judge postponed the proceedings.
There were titters in the courtroom (see the video, courtesy of A1+, which starts getting interesting after at 0:36).
In January the judge postponed the trial after the defendants refused to stand up in respect of the judge.
The seven on trial are charged with plotting a coup. The opposition has claimed that the defendants, including Armenia's former foreign minister and three parliamentary deputies, are victims of political persecution.
