Ex-Prime Minister: Robert Kocharian and Vladimir Gasparyan have  recordings of a conversation with Nairi Hunanyan

Ex-Prime Minister: Robert Kocharian and Vladimir Gasparyan have  recordings of a conversation with Nairi Hunanyan

ArmInfo. I am more than convinced that the ex-president of Armenia Robert Kocharian has a record of the conversation with the organizer of the terrorist attack  in the Armenian parliament on October 27, 1999, Nairi Hunanyan. A  similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfo, Chairman of the Republic  Party, ex-Prime Minister of Armenia Aram Sargsyan.

On October 27, 1999, a group of terrorists led by Nairi Hunanyan  broke into the meeting room of the National Assembly, shooting the  leaders and members of the parliament and government of the republic  who were there. The victims of terrorism were the Prime Minister of  Armenia Vazgen Sargsyan, the Speaker of the Parliament Karen  Demirchyan, the Vice-Speakers Yuri Bakhshyan and Ruben Miroyan, the  Minister for Operational Affairs Leonard Petrosyan, the deputies of  the parliament Armenak Armenakyan, Henrik Abrahamyan, Mikael  Kotanyan. The trial of terrorists lasted from 2001 to 2003. The  indictment required capital punishment. However, as a result of the  abolition of the death penalty in Armenia in September 2003, six  terrorists, including the leader of the Unanyan group, were sentenced  to life imprisonment. Another terrorist, Hamlet Stepanyan, was  sentenced to 14 years in prison.

"Now some argue that there is no such recording, moreover, it never  existed. However, I am convinced that the recording of the  conversation between Kocharyan and Hunanyan not only exists, but also  exists in several copies. In the end, the place of their meeting was  prepared by employees of the Ministry of National security. I think  that the then Chief of the Military Police Vladimir Gasparyan has one  copy of the conversation. Understanding perfectly how Robert  Kocharian and Serzh Sargsyan feel about him, Gasparyan definitely  held one of the copies, " he said.

According to the former prime minister, Kocharian and Sargsyan would  never have left Gasparyan as the chief of the Military Police after  October 27. However, Gasparyan stayed at his post, which, in  Sargsyan's opinion, at least indicates that Gasparyan has certain  information.

According to Sargsyan, being the Prime Minister of Armenia, he  rendered all possible support to the investigation in this case, led  by the then military prosecutor Gagik Dzhangiryan, with the goal of  making the process objective. A lot of work was done during this  period, and the investigation moved forward significantly. He also  noted that during his premiership, the testimonies of the witnesses  in the October 27 case were very different from their own testimonies  after his resignation.
