Ex-MP Mihran Hakobyan took to his Facebook to share an open letter sent to US ambassador and EU delegation head to Armenia Lynne Tracy and Andrea Wiktorin.

"I have been following the activities of your institutes in Armenia for more than a year. I remember years ago, even in the case of democracy and human rights issues, the response of your or your affiliated organizations was not long in coming," he began.

"The head of the executive power of Armenia does not even hide that he judges people based on political considerations," ex-MP noted adding that if the trials are openly political, and ambassadors, are 'stubbornly silent', one thing they must know for sure is that "there will be reverse trials tomorrow. It is a natural process, it is the law of nature."

According to him, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Armenian ex-president Robert Kocharyan, 65, is still imprisoned.

"Do you think anyone will forget this?" ex-MP wonders. "Remember that no matter what happens tomorrow, you will not be able to speak anymore, you will not have the moral right to do so. Remember that tomorrow the same National Security Service investigator will interrogate [Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan's daughters - ed.] Mariam and Shushan Pashinyan." 

"You are silent," he noted adding that they did not raise their voice when "the maniac" did not let the second president of Armenia, who has health problems, be released from prison during the pandemic.
