COLLECTION OF SIGNATURES WITH DEMAND OF BRINGING ROBERT KOCHARIAN BEFORE HAGUE INTERNATIONAL COURT STARTS
JU LY 15
A republican collection of signatures with the demand of bringing
previous Armenian President Robert Kocharian before Hague International
Court for the grave crimes committed by him towards the people started
on July 14 on the initiative of the People’s Movement.
"Robert Kocharian has twice seized the presidential power on the basis
of forged documents, by committing a grave crime of power seizure. He
strengthened his personal and tyrant power with blood, by the October
27, 1999 crime and established a real robber regime in Armenia. He
finished the power again with blood, with the cruel slaughter of
March 1, 2008, which with all its signs is a crime against mankind,"
the document read. Several hundreds of citizens have already signed
According to David Shahnazarian, a representative of People’s Movement
center, first of all R. Kocharian and RA Prosecutor General Aghvan
Hovsepian are responsible for the March 1 events.
According to Stepan Demirchian, the Chairman of the People’s Party
of Armenia, it would be desirable that Armenia’s criminals receive
a punishment in their own country. "However, as no real justice
is administered in Armenia, we have to apply to the international
instances," he said.
