Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
"I don't think that Europe is eager to protect the interests of Vardan Oskanyan," Galust Sahakyan, Head of the ruling Republican Party faction in the Parliament, Vice Chairman of RPA, said in the parliament when commenting on distribution of documents in PACE saying that the criminal case against Oskanyan has no legal ground and it politically motivated.
Sahakyan is sure that the case is exclusively legal and the Armenian public will make sure of that shortly.
"In the succession of time the passions will fade away. As regards distribution of documents at PACE, I cannot welcome such step. There were many cases in the history of our country when domestic political problems were settled with help of external forces. It is inadmissible for me," he said. To recall, Vardan Oskanyan was deprived of deputy immunity on October 2. Prosecutor General Hovsepyan appealed to the Parliament for a permission to involve
Vartan Oskanian as an accused party in the money laundering case against Civilitas Foundation. The appeal implies deprivation of deputy immunity, but not arrest. Prosperous Armenia Party considers the given case as politically motivated and pursuing the goal to exert pressure on the Party on the threshold of presidential election.
