Nairi Hunanian Renounces His Lawyer

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Nairi Hunanian–the leader of the gang that rushed into parliament chamber last October 27 and killed eight key Armenian officials–recently announced that he wanted to renounce his counselor Ara Zakarian.

"During the meeting held on July 25 Hunanian insisted that he did not want to have me as his counselor in the presence of the members of the investigative body. Hunanian claimed he doesn’t need any counselor after getting acquainted with the materials of the case and said he himself would defend his own interests," said Ara Zakarian.

Ara Zakarian was the second lawyer appointed by the state to defend Hunanian’s interests and also the second renounced by him.
