We’re going to respond to the organizers of the events of October 27, 1999 during the upcoming elections. Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who is the ruling Civil Contract Party’s candidate for Prime Minister, stated this Monday during their election campaign ahead of the snap parliamentary elections on June 20.
“The preliminary investigation into the case over the events of October 27, 1999 was reopened in February of last year on the basis of the application submitted by Anahit Bakhshyan, a representative of the legal successor of a victim of the events. Of course, as you know, investigative actions aren’t being carried out due to the coronavirus and the war so that the coronavirus wouldn’t spread, but I want you to know that the preliminary investigation has been reopened and is being conducted by the National Security Service.
However, with your votes, you can particularly hold the judicial-legal bodies responsible, telling them that similar cases need to be deeply investigated and that all the possible measures need to be taken to reveal the case,” he said.
