Hunanian Case Lawyers Urged to Act Within The Law

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Head of the Investigation Department–Military Procurator’s Office–Artak Haroutiunian addressed an open letter to lawyers Ruben Sahakian and Ruben Rshtuni. The letter reads:

"Of late you have made statemen’s to media that the body in charge of the preliminary investigation into the terrorist act committed by Nairi Hunanian and others at the Armenian National Assembly on October 27 has exhausted its potential–and that your clients are kept under arrest exclusively on the basis of speculations.

"Highly respecting your professionalism and humane qualities–considering the particular complexity of the case and the public response evoked by it–I call on you to abstain from such statemen’s and defend your position in the form stipulated by the Constitution and the Code of Criminal Procedure."
