TOP MEMBER OF RULING PARTY SAYS POLITICAL PRISONERS MIGHT BE RELEASED

Razmik Zohrabyan, a deputy chairman of the ruling Republican Party
of Armenia, told reporters today that the ruling coalition has not
discussed the issue of releasing the political prisoners.

“No such discussion at the coalition level has taken place,” he said.

He, however, added that release of some convicts may be discussed based
on legal aspects. He said the amendments to the Criminal Code submitted
to parliament envisage reduction of service terms for some convicts.

“Quite probably, many convicts – not only those 11 – may be released
as a result,” he said.

“Those 11”, mentioned by Zohrabyan, are political prisoners.
