Ashot Manukyan, a convict serving life sentence, will be released. This is what Manukyan’s attorney Narek Aloyan wrote on his Facebook page.
“A short while ago, the Criminal Court of Appeal of Armenia announced its decision,” he stated.
Manukyan was sentenced for the murder of three servicemen 24 years ago. The Penitentiary Service has given a negative conclusion on his conditional early release, while the Probation Service has given a positive conclusion, yet both institutions describe Manukyan as a good person.
