While hundreds of thousands of Armenians, including public and
political figures, are organizing different campaigns, candlelight
vigils and protests to express their pain and sorrow over the death
of military doctor Vahe Avetyan, the country's president, leader of
the ruling Republican Party of Armenian (HHK) Serzh Sargsyan has not
offered condolences to Avetyan's family or friends.

According to the president's website, Serzh Sargsyan left for Ukraine
on Sunday to meet his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Yanukovych and watch
Football World Cup. Ruben Hayrapteyan, an MP from the HHK and President
of the Armenian Football Federation, is believed to be in Ukraine, too.

Yesterday we tried to know from Armenian President's Spokesman Armen
Arzumanyan why Serzh Sargsyan had not condoled with the Avetyan family,
but Arzumanyan did not answer our telephone calls. HHK spokesman and
officials were not available either.

On June 17, Vahe Avetyan was beaten in Republican MP Ruben
Hayrapetyan's Harsnakar Restaurant by a large group of restaurant
employees and Hayrapetyan's personal bodyguards. he died in hospital
12 days later without regaining consciousness.
