CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS Saturday, July 30
In the morning release of Albert Baghdasarian (member of the coordinating council of the movement to support Sasna Tzrèr) and Armenak GUREGHIAN (father of two members of the commando): They were detained yesterday near the metro station Bd Baghramian around 17h, which prevented Baghdasaryan to participate in the Friday night parade which had ended with the violence that is known (see exclusive interview Albert Baghdasarian broadcast yesterday on Armenews).
Decapitation of the coordinating council of the movement to support Sasna Tzrèr David Sanassarian, Armen Martirosyan, Andreas Ghukasyan and Yeghishe Petrosyan were placed in custody on the night of Friday to Saturday. They are suspected of organizing mass disorders. Yeghishe Petrosyan who have discomfort during his arrest in the early morning at his home, was hospitalized in a private clinic where he is under strict police surveillance. Alec Yènicomèhian, who was indicted for assistance to armed groups and whose legal period of custody was ending yesterday (he was held on July 27) was remanded in custody for two months in prison Armavir. Asked why a long investment of capital (which is not without inconvenience to the accused) and his lawyer Nikolay Baghdasaryan said that the prison Armavir is the only offering accommodation conditions decent for a disabled. Recall Alec Yènicomèchian performed in custody (72h) in the premises of National Security (former KGB premises on Avenue Nalbandian) in conditions incompatible with his disability, which was highly criticized by his lawyer who demanded his release. Moreover, it has not had access to date with the Braille method and therefore denied the opportunity to examine the documents in his file.
The Coordination Council now is therefore reduced to two members, Albert Baghdasarian (newly released on the same day) and another that is not reported but could be Saro Saroyan (political scientist), which no longer appears in public.
Statement of the Coordination Council broadcast in the morning by Garegin Tchougaszian, currently at large (leading member of Nor Hayastan), on his Facebook page After reviewing the facts of the night, it is said: “All this is clear proof that ‘Armenia, the power was seized by a criminal group practicing a massive state terrorism and which we can not break free by anti-terrorist operations. Thus, it becomes obvious to everyone, that the action of the group Sasna Tzrèr was a necessity imposed as the ultimate way to overthrow the dictatorship.
We appeal to Serzh Sargsyan: If you do not want to deserve the fate that was once reserved for Ceausescu, you only have one thing to do, you should immediately submit to the popular will and initiate a transfer process peaceful of power, the first step is to begin negotiations with the insurgents of the Sasna Tzrèr group. This is the last chance that is offered to you and to our people to achieve political change without convulsion. “.
Publication of two posts Jirair Sefilian
Recall that Jirair Sefilian is incarcerated at Vardachèn prison since June 10 on suspicion of having prepared the organization of an armed coup. His first post was published yesterday in the early afternoon (14h) by Gala (multimedia Gyumri)
I inform you that during the last three to four days, intermediate I know and whom I respect, visited me after meeting with Serzh Sargsyan. They made me visit twice and called me once on the phone, telling me that Serzh Sargsyan has not changed its position and continues to think that guys have to go after which only he and I could us meet.
I reported them I left for my equally faithful to my position that my prior meeting with the guys is the best decision median.
I must first meet before meeting with Serzh Sargsyan. This is the only way to imagine they can get. I continue to share this view.
If Serzh Sargsyan does not agree to this proposal, this could have serious consequences for our people, which I deeply regret. The entire nation vogue on a boat that Sarkisian wants to sink.
From this demonstrates is refusal of the agreement and the use of ruthless methods against the population. Despite this, and despite the tricks used by the regime against the Sasna Tzrèr and the Armenian people, I remain open to collaboration in order to stop the earlier bloodshed. “.
In this message from the early afternoon, Jirair Sefilian renews its proposal to meet members of the armed commando before meeting with Serzh Sargsyan, while the latter could hear him through intermediaries, it would first make the commando after which only a meeting could take place between him and Jirair Sefilian.
His second message was posted by another media evening (around 22:30)
Today, it makes fourteen days my friends and companions with whom we share the same ideas, the Sasna Tzrèr group continues to resist the price of his life, with the aim and hope of rallying the people to insurrection. It should be clear to everyone that the guys have sacrificed for our country and our people, in the name of a free Armenian state, fair, democratic and sovereign. It was very difficult to remain silent to date, and to refrain from launching various calls for our people. I behaved that way to prevent bloodshed and not to create obstacles in the process of a possible negotiation, but the reality is that Serzh Sargsyan does not intend to resolve this complex case by political negotiations. He unfortunately chose the bloody path and strategy of morally exhausting and physically eliminate the guys that people already cherishes.
This time, it no longer has the right to be wrong, we must assess the situation correctly and take the opportunity created at the sacrifice of our guys to do the right thing. Also, to stop the bloodshed and prevent bloody tragedy looming in hours or in the coming days, I propose the following solution: using its right to peaceful assembly, our people do so form a living wall (pat-patvar) between the police and the perimeter of the PPTz garrison.
Taking into account the polarization deeper each day of the company during the last two weeks, by this I first called on our people and the international community, so that an effective solution is found for avoid bloodshed, based on my proposal or another. If applicable, the bloodshed will lead inexorably to greater polarization of society. Obviously the choice of my proposal involves the implementation of large efforts and multiplication by two or three the number of people who have so far mobilized to support the group. In the middle My solution, which includes neither victors nor vanquished and a solution to the sole benefit of our people and our country, the regime will be forced to choose a civilized way to resolve the crisis and to sit at the table negotiations to meet the popular demand (note: the phrase being extremely poorly constructed, translation is a recomposition).
Congratulating and highly finding people who are out in the street to support the uprising began on July 17, I appeal to that part of our people has not so far involved in this. I particularly address to the people of the Republic of Armenia and Artsakh, Armenians of Javakhk, as well as Armenians living abroad, asking them to join as soon as the Khorenatsi Street, became the center of the political will of national rebirth.
Dear compatriots, the moment is historic, people Sasna Tzrèr fulfilled their mission and our duty to give meaning to their sacrifice. “
Note that these messages have had almost no echo (also no evening gathering of the speakers at the Opera, there will reference and allusion same). Note also that the idea that the population is in “living wall” for Sasna Tzrèr is not new since the purpose of the meetings that were held on Khorenatsi street until July 27, was precisely to prevent their elimination bloody physical ensuring a popular presence at the entrance of the perimeter of the garrison. The thing was no longer possible, since July 27, when the Khorenatsi street was closed to the public. And after the violent night of Friday 29 to Saturday 30, the proposal is totally unreal.
The output of the three ambulance garrison. There are only two doctors, now in garrison, presented as hostages by the police, but as volunteers by the commando.
The death of a policeman on the street Khorenatsi Around 17h (or 15h French time), a police garrison PPTz part of the monitoring service Erebuni on Khorenatsi street, Tèpanossian Youra, 30, father of three children, was killed while sitting in a military vehicle. Police said the shot is that of a sniper stationed at a distance of 350 or 400 meters. Note that it is the police who had hitherto made shots like this wounding several members of the commando. If the news was broadcast that is right, it would be the first time that Sasna Tzrèr have done so. The death brings to two the number of victims of police action of the armed commando (Colonel Vanoyan was killed July 17 when the assault on the garrison by police in unclear conditions).
The end of the ultimatum police. The death of the policeman intervened at a time when almost ended the day before the deadline set by the police for the commandos go either 17h, considerate and beyond, more no precautions will be taken to spare their lives, and it will draw on them without warning. the rally on Freedom square at 20h Despite an absolutely dramatic context (the violence of the night, setting the judgments of almost all Member of the coordinating Council, the end of the ultimatum police and the death of a policeman), people are still gathered in numbers on Saturday night on the Freedom square. A lot of young people.
The gathering lasts from 8:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.. Speaking: actress Tamar Hovhannisian, the politician Albert Baghdasarian, the singer Rouben Haghvèrdian and two young strangers.
Tamar Hovhannisian attacks the Catholicos of an extremely virulent: “Listen to me, you, Garegin II, who so loves watches and luxury waitresses, where listening is the people! If you do not you dresses between the people and the power surrounded by your rogues dressed in mourning clothes is that you’re not a Catholicos! Armenia has never had Catholicos like you and do will not! Enriched by selling candles of our churches, you’re a beggar! “Etc. It announces a parade and asked the director of the Yerevan police Valery Ossipian (former hostage Commando, released July 23), to ensure safety of demonstrators. Referring to the police violence of the previous night (from 29 to 30 July), she said: “The pill of what happened that night will not pass! “.
Commenting on the silence and invisibility of the authorities of the country (President, Prime Minister, ministers, National Assembly), she said: “This country is deprived of political leadership facto! The power belongs to us! If we do not divide into two fronts, we can not break us! Please, be calm and quiet! “.
Albert Baghdasaryan began his speech by declaring “responsible for all those who are here at all levels.” He asks those who follow the events on the internet to get to Opera, addressing not only the population but also to the members. He asked the people gathered to wait half an hour, the time to see if members answer the call to come and join the court as representatives of the nation. He explained that the Coordinating Council is being reduced to two, the responsibility they bear is very heavy. It defines the choices available to the public about the show: return on Khorenatsi street or take another route. He asked the population the opportunity to think to make the right decision, giving voice to Rouben Haghverdian pending.
MHM0106594-2.jpg After the intervention of the latter, Albert Baghdasaryan speaks again to acknowledge the fact that no member has joined the court: “If members do not come is that they are not not the nation’s representatives! “. He reiterated the two proposals: back to Khoènatsi with the risk that a repeat of the violence of the night before, or along a route in the city center, which would be repeated each day and allow the gradual rallying of a growing number of people “up ‘to reach the goal. “ In the crowd, people cry occasionally “Khorenatsi: Khorenatsi! “. “Dear people, we must decide together. That tomorrow we do not accuse me of having decided alone! There were three solutions: 1 / That the parliamentarians to the direction of movement. We have seen that they have not answered the call. 2 / paralyze the city center to show that we are not afraid, even after what happened in the night, and to ensure that the crowd from growing within days 3 / return on Khorenatsi Street. Our only issue is to support Sasna Tzrèr! “. It gives voice to a young unknown who advocates the parade in the city center. His eloquent speech quite reduced, it seems, the number of supporters of return on Khorenatsi street, which is derived from the progressive drying up of scansions “Khorenatsi! Khorenatsi! “. Another young unknown is expressed in the same direction. Albert Baghdasaryan speaks again: “I endorse all the responsibility for what we do! “. He announced a parade in the city center to the Republic Square where it will be decided following the route. “If we are wrong, we deceive together! “. He announced: “Tomorrow we will be more numerous. And if I’m not here tomorrow, young people will replace me! We have seen that they can do, “he said, referring to the intervention of two young people.
