/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Georgian Public Defender Sozar Subari made a
statement on the Georgian government’s deliberate delay to register
French lawyer Patrick Arapyan as a defender for Javakhk political
activist, Leader of United Javakhk Political Movement Vahagn

He slammed the delay as a violation of constitution-guaranteed
protection right, informs.

At the night of July 20, 2008 Georgian special squad soldiers and
the local police burst into the house of United Javakhk Leader Vahagn
Chakhalyan, arrested him and his family members.

Only 3 hearings have been held since Chakhalyan’s arrest, where
the observers, including those from Georgian Ombudsman’s office,
registered gross violations.

On Dec. 3 new charges were laid against Chakhalyan and the trial
postponed for an indefinite period.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
