Azadamard Weekly Building Returned

YEREVAN (Golos Armenii)Executive editor of the Azadamard weekly–the official publication of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Bureau–which was forcibly shut down following the now infamous Dec. 28–1994 presidential decree–told Golos Armenii that the key to the building was returned to the newspaper’s administration and the hold on the property lifted.

Moushegh Mikaelian told the newspaper that the motives and reasoning behind the return of the building were not yet clear–and he could not speculate whether this gesture was connected to re-establishment of the ARF organization in Armenia.

Mikaelian told Golos Armenii that an exchange agreement was reached during the transfer of the building.

Golos Armenii published a photograph of the seized building depicting a basement office filled with piles and mounds of looted documen’s.
