/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Georgian authorities brought new charges against
Javakhk activist Vahagn Chakhalyan.

The prosecution uses Chakhalyan's `Prison and political notes' book as
a ground for a new criminal case. The Akhalkalaki police allegedly
found proofs allowing to bring new accusations against Mr. Chakhalyan,
who has already been sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment.

Yerkir Union strongly condemns the new wave political repressions
against Vahagn Chakhalyan. `These accusations appear as an attempt to
intimidate Javakheti Armenians before the elections to local
self-government due on May 30, 2010,' the Union said.
