2013-01-28 13:19

Armenian political activist from Javakhk (Armenian region of Georgia) Vahagn Chakhalyan has called the accusations voiced by President Mikheil Saakashvili mendacious, the News-Armenia reported.


In a statement, Chakhalyan noted that Saakashvili's words were misinformation, recalling that no one had charged him of spying for Russia.

According to the Armenian activist, he was convicted for having demanded the authorities to respect the rights of Armenians in Georgia, to return their churches, to provide the Armenian language in Javakhk with the regional status, as well as to open Armenian university in Akhalkalaki. He stressed that his struggle with the regime was legal.

Recall, Political activist Chakhalyan, sentenced in 2008 to 10 years in prison, was released on January 24. As noted by the local observers, the release of Chakhalyan will reduce tensions in Javakheti, which has been steadily increasing during the reign of the former power.

As expected, Chakhalyan was released under the general amnesty declared in Georgia.
