Sassounian Defense Issues Urgent Appeal

GLENDALE–The Hampig Sassounian Defense Committee issued an announcement Wednesday calling on all community members to take part in a hearing scheduled on Friday–May 10 at the Criminal Court Building in downtown Los Angeles.

Below is the text of that announcement:

Fellow Armenia’s,

The hearings for the retrial of the Hampig Sassounian case are continuing and largely due to the efforts of the Armenian people–the hearings are progressing with our assistance and support.

On Friday–May 10–2002 at 8:15 a.m.–Hampig Sassounian’s defense attorney will return to court for a new hearing. During the last hearing–the court asked for a list of experts–whose expertise can be evaluated. It is based on this that the defense attorney will present its position to the court.

This hearing will take place at the Criminal Court Building–210 W. Temple Street–9th Floor–Department 103–Judge Perry–in downtown Los Angeles.

This hearing will have a great impact on the trial and will determine the legal course.

Your attendance will greatly enhance and assist this matter.

Sassounian Defense Committee
