ArmInfo.The hopes of people who believe that imprisonment can make me abandon my principles and political goals are ridiculous. The first president of Artsakh, the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan wrote about this on his Facebook page, in response to a statement circulated on the eve in support of Kocharyan, as well as those who supported this statement.
The second president of Armenia, emphasized that he was ready to continue the fight even from the prison cell. He thanked all those who signed this statement, emphasizing that it inspired him. "Of course, it is encouraging when various people who have unreasonable authority, both in Armenia and Artsakh, come together and come forward on the issue of political persecution against me. I would also like to thank the hundreds of our citizens and the Diaspora Armenians who They joined the statement and welcomed it both on social networks and on other sites, "Kocharian emphasized.
He also noted that the voice of these figures is proved by the fact that what is happening has ceased to be a struggle for the freedom of one person, forvcessation of political persecution against one person.
"This fight is being waged in the name of a right-wing and democratic state, as well as against arbitrariness. The lawlessness policy pursued by the Prime Minister has awakened a part of the intellectual community. The best evidence of this is the dissemination of this statement. I want you to have no doubt that I am determined to continue the fight even from the prison cell, "Kocharian emphasized.
The second president of Armenia emphasized that some people's hopes that imprisonment would force him to abandon his principles and political goals are ridiculous. "I worked on them back in 1988, from the first days of the Artsakh movement. And I am sure that justice will prevail, after which we will all begin to work together to strengthen and build the security of our two states," Robert Kocharian concluded.
It should be noted that last night a joint statement was circulated by a number of political, public, cultural and sports figures of Armenia and Artsakh. It expressed "concern about lawlessness against the first president of Artsakh and the second president of Armenia, Robert Kocharian." The statement also noted that Kocharian is a political prisoner. The signatories called on the authorities to suspend the anti- constitutional process of political persecution and pressure on the courts, comply with the decision of the Constitutional Court and change the preventive measure against Robert Kocharian.
