Terrorist attack in Armenian parliament: unanswered questions. 28588.jpeg

13 years have passed since the terrorist attack on the Armenian parliament building that killed eight people, including Prime Minister Vazgen Sargsyan, Parliament Speaker Karen Demirchyan. But many in the country are rather skeptical about the disclosure "of the case on October 27". MPs from the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) repeat the same thing every year: the organizers of "shooting of the parliament" have not yet been found.

All perpetrators of the crime on October 27 were arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment. They were charged under several articles of the Criminal Code, including treason and terrorism. Visiting a memorial to victims of the terrorist attack, erected in the courtyard of the National Assembly, government officials declare their intention to do everything possible to find the customers of the crime. "Disclosure of this crime is a matter of pride for our nation and state", Armenian Parliament Speaker Hovik Abrahamyan said on Oct. 27 while visiting the memorial of victims of terrorist attack.

The story of the most notorious crimes in the post-Soviet Armenia has continued even after imprisonment of the group of terrorists - Nairi Hunanian, his brother Karen Hunanyan, their uncle Vram Galstyan, as well as Derenik Bejanyan, Edik Grigoryan and Ashot Knyazyan. Quite interesting was the fate of the terrorists and some people indirectly or directly involved in the crime.

Norayr Yeghiazaryan, who was supplying weapons the criminal group, died in custody on August 29, 2000, before the court. According to the official version, Yeghiazaryan died in an accident - from the electric shock. In the United States, under mysterious circumstances, a nurse who took part in the initial examination of the corpses died in 2000. During the preliminary investigation she made a very unusual statement, saying that, except for the terrorist group of Hunanyan, in the National Assembly there were another armed men.

Strange death was not the end. In December 2002, Tigran Naghdalyan, chairman of the Public Television of Armenia was killed in an apartment building. Interestingly, the lawyer Oleg Yunoshev previously accused Nagldyan of involvement in the terrorist attack, particularly of the issue to the terrorist documents permitting to enter the Houses of Parliament. Armen Sargsyan - the brother of the late Vazgen Sargsyan was accused of killing Naghdalyan.

In April 2004, Vram Galstyan, Hunanyan's uncle was found hanged in his apartment. Interestingly, a few days before his death, Galstyan was going to make a statement regarding the terrorist attack on October 27. Finally, the driver of the vehicle of the terrorists Hamlet Stepanyan, sentenced to 14 years in prison (who was soon to be released), died suddenly in prison in May 2010.

After the above-mentioned strange events, local experts and opposition leaders stated that the organizers of the terrorist act were eliminating special figures in order to avoid unwanted leaks. According to them, this was a kind of preventive measures to eliminate the weak links in the chain of the "case of October 27".

Unanswered questions

Opposition parties and the media, tending to these forces, as well as relatives and friends of the victims of the terrorist attack, are asking one question without a clear answer for 13 consecutive years. According to security experts, events October 27, 1999 showed total incapacity of Armenian special services, since the offense is a litmus test of their effectiveness.
