ANC leader: current emigration rate comparable to Genocide

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian National Congress (ANC) opposition bloc leader accused current authorities of triggering emigration of 1 million- the figure comparable to the number of Armenian Genocide victims.

“Those demanding Genocide recognition are responsible for similar genocide in their own country. It’s not me who said that. I’m citing Armenian Ambassador to Switzerland Charles Aznavour, appointed by President Serzh Sargsyan,” Levon Ter-Petrossian said during ANC rally.

Ter-Petrossian further noted corruption as another result of current regime’s activities. “Are those robbing their own people hoping to gain another victory over Azerbaijan?” ANC leader questioned.

“The government fails to provide its citizens' security, with the police and court, bribed by the criminals, taking sides against a person who hoped to find protection,” Ter-Petrossian said, also condemning current suicides in the army.
