The trial of the criminal case on the Sasna Tsrer armed group ended Wednesday at the Court of General Jurisdiction of Yerevan.

The presiding judge announced the verdicts for all ten defendants in this case.

Accordingly, they were given prison sentences.

In particular, defendants Pavlik Manukyan, Varuzhan Avetisyan and Smbat Barseghyan were sentenced to 10, 9.6 and 25 years in prison, respectively.

In protest of the then authorities, the Sasna Tsrer armed group took over a police patrol regiment building in Yerevan and held hostages, but later surrendered in July 2016. Three police officers, however, were killed during the two-week standoff.

Criminal charges were brought against 32 people in connection with this incident and related developments.
