“What else should happen in the state with the parliamentary system of government….

YEREVAN. – A deputy from the Republican Party of Armenia Samvel Farmanyan is shocked by the desire of some deputies to challenge the need to form an ad hoc committee to investigate the wiretapped recording.

According to him, from a political point of view, these deputies had to act in the opposite way.

“What else should happen in the state with the parliamentary system of government to finally set up a committee?” Farmanyan wonders.

As reported earlier, a recording of a phone conversation between the director of Armenia’s National Security Service Arthur Vanetsyan and head of the Special Investigation Service Sasun Khachatryan appeared on the web.

The authenticity of the record was recognized both by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and participants of the conversation.

During the conversation, Vanetsyan highlighted the need to imprison Kocharyan. The sides were discussing the arrest of Khachaturov.

On March 1 and 2, 2008, the then authorities used force against the opposition members who were rallying in downtown Yerevan, and against the results of the recent presidential election. Eight demonstrators as well as two servicemen of the internal troops were killed in the clashes. But no one had been brought to account for these deaths, to this day.
