The group, set up to find facts on the murders of March 1, was able
to make tangible revelations at least thanks to the work of the
oppositional representative. The head of the Heritage parliamentary
faction Armen Martirosyan stated on May 27. Dwelling on the situation,
in which the fact-finding group appeared, when the work of the group
has been stopped and the head of the group, the representative of the
Human Rights Defender Vahe Stepanyan stated that he does not want to
work any more because he cannot counterbalance the disagreements of the
governmental and oppositional representatives, Armen Martirosyan thinks
that if the group is formed to study facts so the disagreements appear
because of obstacles for the work. Since the opposition needs facts
and the government has already presented its facts, so according to
Armen Martirosyan, the governmental representatives are the obstacles.

"The oppositional representatives tried to reveal the facts and the
governmental representatives impeded. So the disagreements appeared
here. I think that this is the reason why they are trying to stop
the activities of the fact-finding group. But I reiterate that the
Heritage is going to struggle until the end to make the fact-finding
group resume its work", stated Armen Martirosyan.

He stated that the residence of the president did not answer the
letter of the head of the Heritage board Anahit Bakhshyan. Bashkhyan
appealed to the president to secure the regular work of the group.

Armen Martirosyan reminded that if the group stops working, the
necessity to keep secret its revelations will disappear.
