Khachatur Sukiasyan not afraid to face trial

PanARMENIAN.Net - Khachatur Sukiasyan , Member of the National Assembly of Armenia, who is wanted by police since the spring of 2008, distributed a statement today. In his statement he briefly outlined the events of March last year, touched upon the prosecution of citizens for their political views and the amnesty recently granted.

Khachatur Sukiasyan emphasized that he is not afraid of the prospect to face a trial because he had not committed a crime. However, he emphasized in the statement that "Attorney General after changing accusations was obliged to obtain the consent of the National Assembly, according to Article 66 of the RA Constitution.

This agreement was necessary also to solve the problem of my arrest and continued detention of other MPs that had not been obtained, and, in fact, I have now prosecuted being not deprived of parliamentary immunity." Sukiasyan believes that today he has a right to walk freely in the city, and no police officer has a right to limit his freedom.

Armenian MP, who has gone underground, notes that the authorities ignoring the requirements of the latest PACE resolution 1677, will seek to arrest him, and "with the help of judges who are their instruments, get stamps under their false and fabricated accusations".

"I am not particularly worried about all that. I am ready to fight for my rights and freedoms, rights and freedoms of my people, and I'm confident that justice will triumph in the end," RA MP Khachatur Sukiasian concluded.
