During the recent times the representatives of the Armenian National Congress and L. Ter-Petrosyan personally are making efforts to liven up their movement, which is in evident crisis.
Whereas as a result of the discussions the Neo-Bolsheviks came to a conclusion that the lack of finance is the main reason for such sad situation. That is why they decided to solve the issue of finance before restarting their demonstration stage from February 2009. In particular they have started to “legalize” the suspicious sums received from the USA by means of different strange organizations, to show the international community and the Armenian society that they carry out their activity with “clean” money.
When your patience is exhausted
Varouzhan Karapetyan was the person in charge of military affairs in the European office of ASALA. In 1983, he was arrested in France after the terrorist act organized in the French airport “Aurles” and was sentenced to life imprisonment. Eighteen years after serving his sentence in France, V. Karapetyan was released. On April 24, 2001 he came to Armenia, settled in his homeland, and now lives in Dilijan, in a house he has built on his own.
“My patience is exhausted. Those who rob others of their glory have increased in number, and they abuse the human sacrifice. It’s now time to speak and tell the truth,” VAROUZHAN KARAPETYAN said in an exclusive interview to “Hayots Ashkharh”.
….. And one of such foxes is the criminal who introduces himself as Sargis Hatspanyan.”
“Who is, after all, Sargis Hatspanyan who currently acts as a ‘pro-Levon activist’”? What does he have to do with the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia?”
“When we were arrested, Sargis Hatspanyan was one of the time-servers who took advantage of our status. He came to the independent state of Armenia, introduced himself as a fighter and even the leader of the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia and speculated the most sacred patriotic sentiments of our people.
Hatspanyan was a mysterious nature. His real surname was Ekmedjyan. When living in France, he speculated the fact of bearing the same surname as martyr hero Levon Ekmekdjyan but as a matter of fact, he had no relationship with either Levon or our army. In this way, he managed to organize several donations in the Diaspora. He extorted and realized the sums that were collected with the purpose of providing aid to the arrested freedom fighters as well as assisting in the war of Artsakh.
During its yesterday’s session the NA Temporary Committee investigating the results of March 1-2 developments touched upon the circumstances of the death cases and the results of the forensic expertise. For that purpose the committee invited the Director of the Scientific-Practical Center of Forensic Expertise Shota Vardanyan.
The only issue included in the agenda of yesterday’s session of the interim parliamentary committee investigating the March 1-2 events and their causes concerned the disclosure of the details and circumstances of the incident that took place on the Theatrical Square in the morning of March 1 and the clarification of the operations of the police officers. To this end, Major-General ALEXANDER AFYAN, Deputy Chief of the Police, was invited to the committee session.
The activists of the Ter-Petrosyan-led movement began their demonstration with a disgraceful incident.
One of the people standing on the platform of the Matenadaran had the naivety to make a half-hearted response to the revolutionaries’ ultimatum-like demands and was fiercely attacked by the activists. After listening to the short speech of the chief demonstrator, the middle-aged man standing not far from the microphone said, “Well, why do you make demands? Just ask!”
Instead of consolidating the opposition, the recent attempts aimed at establishing the Armenian National Congress – an idea advanced by L. Ter-Petrosyan on May 2, during the conference of the “pan-national movement”, has began serving as a specific kind of “litmus test” revealing the internal controversies.
QUESTION REMAINS UNDECIDED FOR THE TIME BEING
In its session convened yesterday, “Heritage” party made a decision to discuss all the forms of cooperation and partnership with the Armenian National Congress only after the adoption of the programs and regulations of the latter.
