The criminal must undergo punishment no matter whose relative he is and what party he belongs to, Eduard Sharmazanov, Vice Speaker of Armenian Parliament, Spokesman for the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), says when commenting on the recent incident in Goris.      

"A criminal is a criminal no matter whether he is a member of the Prosperous Armenia Party or the Republican Party of Armenia. Our assessment, the RPA's assessment is absolutely clear - there are law- enforcement structures and the criminal must undergo punishment", says Sharmazanov. 
To note, due to the measures taken by the Armenian law-enforces, residents of Goris Gor Harutyunyan and Eyner Khachatryan appeared before the Goris

Department of Armenian Police and gave explanations about the recent bloody incident in Goris. The investigation is still going on. The police are preparing the materials. The sons of Goris resident Gurgen Harutyunyan (a.k.a. Kulak), Gor Harutyunyan and Artur Harutyunyan, have already been found.  

Eyner Khachatryan, the nephew of Syunik ex-governor Surik Khachatryan (a.k.a. Liska), and his friends broke into the Harutyunyans' flats in Goris, severely beat two brothers Artur and Gor, inflicted numerous knife wounds to them and took them to an undisclosed location. Furthermore, Khachatryan's nephew and his friends did not let the ambulance help the wounded. According to some media reports, following the incident, Syunik ex-governor Surik Khachatryan offered USD 3 thousand to Artur and Gor's mother for her silence.
