Vartan Sedrakyan's lawyer appeals against the arrest of former presidential candidate of Armenia

2013-03-06 13:15

The lawyer of the former presidential candidate Vartan Sedrakyan Alexand Sirunyan on Wednesday intends to appeal against his arrest in a superior instance.


Sirunyan told the News-Armenia that the former candidate had been arrested on Tuesday by the court of general jurisdiction of Yerevan at around 10 pm local time on suspicion of attempted murder.

The court granted the request of the National Security Service to assign Sedrakyan a two-month arrest as a preventive measure.

The lawyer says Sedrakyan has not pleaded guilty and refuses to testify.

At the same time, as reported by the Yerkramas, yesterday the National Security Service of Armenia did not confirm information about the arrest of the former presidential candidate Vardan Sedrakyan.

"I have no such information", the NSC spokesman Artsvin Bagramyan said.

Sedrakyan's name came to light in the case of assassination attempt on another presidential candidate, leader of the "Union "National Self-Determination" Paruyr Hayrikian. The local media reported that two men, arrested on the case, had worked for Sedrakyan.

Sedrakyan previously denied any involvement in the assassination attempt, but did not rule out that could be arrested after the election.
