Victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris were remembered Friday in the French capital city.
But Eric Ouzounian, the father of 17-year-old French Armenian Lola Ouzounian who had died in the attacks, boycotted Friday’s special event, Sudinfo.be reported.
In addition, Eric Ouzounian issued a letter to the French government.
“I consider the government (…) directly responsible for all that happened. (…) A huge abyss has formed between the [French] elite and the population. Nothing will help anymore. (…) I am terrified over the emptying of my country and the death of my daughter,” Eric Ouzounian specifically wrote in the letter.
Lola and Eric Ouzounian were attending the concert in the Bataclan Theatre in Paris, and they had lost each other at the time of the attack. The father was saved, whereas the girl had gone missing and was later found dead.
Simultaneous terrorist attacks occurred on the evening of November 13, in different parts of the French capital city.
These attacks claimed 130 lives and injured over 300 people.
A state of emergency has been declared in France.
