The opposition Armenian National Congress will demand from the European
Union a due process over the case of March 1, 2008 political unrest
in Armenia, an ANC activist has said.

Addressing the opposition's crowded rally outside Matenadaran on
Tuesday, David Shahnazaryan said European Union has several times
condemned the tragic events, calling for a due process and the release
of the individuals detained on political grounds. He added, however,
that the authorities had failed to take any measures to fulfill the
requirements proposed by EU resolutions.

"I am sure nobody doubts we'll win. We are very close to victory,"
he said.

Shahnazaryan recalled the parliament's fact-finding group which was
dissolved by a presidential decree soon after it started disclosing
some circumstances behind the atrocities.

"We first of all call on the European Union do disclose those
circumstances," he stressed.
