Judge Allowed Victim to Interrogate Nairi Hunanian

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Only one victim of the deputies of the National Assembly–head of the "Hayastan" parliamentary group Myasnik Malkhasian was present at the morning session of the court hearing for the October 27 case. In answering Malkhasian’s questions–Nairi Hunanian expressed his regret for the killings–stressing that he had not intended to kill anyone.

In his answers–the defendant confirmed that members of the operative group–and investigators acting on the instructions of Prosecutor Jhangirian–had applied violent measures against him to make him divulge other’s names.

Judge Samvel Uzunian adjourned the session hoping that other victims would come. He said that thereby he was giving them the last chance to come and use their right to ask questions to the defendant.
