May 27, 2009
YEREVAN, MAY 27, NOYAN TAPAN. If Vahe Stepanian, the head of the
RA Ombudsman’s office staff, leaves the fact-finding committee on
study of the March 1-2 events, the Ombudsman will introduce his new
representative. RA Ombudsman Armen Haroutiunian reported on May 27,
in his interview to journalists. "However, I am already looking for
a gladiator to work with them," the Ombudsman said mentioning that
the atmosphere in the committee is strained.
A. Haroutiunian regretted to say that in its time when he reported
about the pressures upon witnesses on the March 1 cases, he was
told that it is not grounded. According to the Ombudsman, if in its
time the Prosecutor’s Office and the Special Investigation Service
responded properly, "we would not appear in this situation today."
