Hraparak: Former Armenian FM’s affair brings Mormons to mind
YEREVAN. – In its statement released Tuesday in connection with the case of Armenia’s former FM Vartan Oskanian, the National Security Service mentioned the name of Huntsman, who is head of the Mormons, that is, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Hraparak daily writes.
“The Mormons came to Armenia for the first time in 1988, at the time of the earthquake, to carry out charitable programs. Subsequently, they settled in Armenia, with their serious business and church.
The Mormons were warmly received in Armenia in the 1990s, during the days of [First President Levon] Ter-Petrosyan, and even more warmly during the ten-year tenure of [second President Robert] Kocharyan. Huntsman was even issued a Special Status passport and he ‘carried out’ projects.
The Mormons’ church in Armenia has 3,000 members,” Hraparak writes.
