YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The "Armenian House" National-Patriotic Union initiated meetings with the lawyers of the parties in the Oct. 27 case. The Union hosted the lawyers Tigran and Marine Janoyan–Thursday–who defend the interests of Prime Minister Vazgen Sargssian–who was assassinated at the National Assembly on October 27.
Tigran Janoyan pointed out that only two days ago he presented documen’s to the Military Prosecutor’s Office which investigated the case–therefore he will be able to answer all the questions after a thorough study of the materials of the case. He said that no specific time for the study of the materials of the case has been fixed–but at the Prosecutor’s Office the lawyers were asked whether they will be able to study the forty volumes of the case within 50 days. Therefore–Tigran Janoyan thinks–the 50-day period is preliminary–not officially fixed. He stated that he agreed to represent the interests of the aggrieved party to make a little contribution to the cause of justice.
Marine Janoyan–in turn–pointed out that she has already studied ten volumes of the case. According to her–a detailed study of each volume require two days. The lawyers said that the legal successors of the assassinated statesmen are also studying the materials of the case.
Attending the meeting were also Vardan Zurnachian and Aram Karakhanian–who represent the interests of Minister Leonard Petrossian and Vice-Speaker of the Parliament Ruben Miroyan assassinated on October 27.
