Ex-Turkish President describes Armenian Genocide as ‘lawful act’

PanARMENIAN.Net - Former Turkish President Kenan Evren considered the Armenian Genocide to be “a just and lawful act.”

The report titled “Turkey’s Internal Threat” and sent to the court in connection with the hearing on the 1980 coup led by then-Chief of the General Staff Erven, accuses Armenians of treason and says that “what happened to them was a just and lawful act.”

The report says that 50-100 thousand Armenians died while the number of Turks killed was much greater, according to Radikal.
