ArmInfo. Andranik Kocharyan, head of the Permanent Parliamentary Committee on Defense and Security, commented on the release of Movses Hakobyan from the post of Chief Military Inspector, as well as the dismissal of his deputies Kamo Kochunts and Vachagan Nersesyan. <There were probably problems. The prime minister is authorized to make such a decision>, he said on November 18 in an interview with reporters, adding that he does not have information about what were the reasons for the dismissals.
Kocharyan did not belittle the significance of the work done by Hakobyan, Kochunts and Nersesyan in previous years. <Another question is that the former authorities caused great damage to the army, using it to solve internal political issues, as, for example, on March 1, 2008. I hope that this will not happen again, since those events will be the most important lesson for everyone>, he said, adding that the current authorities exclude the likelihood of a similar occurrence.
