HAYKAKAN ZHAMANAK: ROBERT KOCHARYAN VS SUREN HARUTYUNYAN

Tert.am

The lawyers of Armenia's ex-president Robert Kocharyan will probably
have to lodge another claim - this time against one of the former
leaders of Soviet Armenia Suren Harutyunyan.

The newly published Armenian version of Mr. Harutyunyan's book
"The past and the present" contains rather unfavorable references to
Armenia's ex-president. Here is an excerpt from the book: "No doubt,
Robert Kocharyan committed numerous blunders and, as some say,
even crimes.

The bloody end of his presidency - in March 2008 - was not at all a
wonder. Of importance now is how his role in Armenian history will be
assessed. On behalf of Armenians I dare say that, due to the 'finale'
to his presidency, Robert Kocharyan will, as Americans say, remain a
'lame duck' in the Armenian people's history - no matter what position
he will be able to obtain in the future."
