Authorities Had Knowledge of Oct. 27 Crime Says Defendant

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The authorities are concerned over the possibility of their involvement in the October 27 crime being exposed–said the Chairman of the Republic party–Albert Bazeyan–at the open meeting of the party’s local chapter in Talin on July 30.

According to him–the party arrived at this conclusion after analyzing the statemen’s made by the president and officials–as well as the campaign carried out by the state-controlled mass media.

"They were either informed of the assassination being plotted or directly or through the structures under their control were aiding and abetting the crime," Bazeyan said.

He pointed out that as a result of the political upheaval of October 27 the president gradually became stronger. "Even today we have a puppet government and well controlled Parliament," Bazeyan said.

According to him–the National Assembly–Parliamentary majority–and the prime minister is sometimes criticized–but the president is never criticized. "This is done by the opposition controlled and financed by the authorities," Bazeyan said.
