The criminal case regarding leader of the opposition Yerkir Tsirani Party Zaruhi Postanjyan has been inscribed to Judge Robert Papoyan of the Yerevan Court of General Jurisdiction, as reported the Judicial Information System.

Zaruhi Postanjyan said the following during the event held on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the murder of Talaat Pasha by Soghomon Tehlirian: “Nikol [acting Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan], we’re coming after you. Tehlirian shot Talaat, and you know what happened, wait, Nikol, be afraid. It might be delayed, but the day will come. Tehlirian did it six years after 1915. You and your colleagues just wait. Neither Erdogan nor Aliyev will help you…”

After hearing these statements, law-enforcement authorities said they believed there were prima facie elements of public calls for violence (murder) and gave a criminal-legal evaluation.

Postanjyan is charged with incitement of national, racial or religious hostility, and a signature to not leave has been chosen as a pre-trial measure against her.
