YEREVAN, July 26. /ARKA/. After a three-hour interrogation in Armenia’s Special Investigation Agency Robert Kocharyan, a former Armenian president was let out, Armenian media sources report.
Kocharian has been summoned as witness for questioning by the Armenian law-enforcement agency investigating the 2008 post-election crackdown on opposition protesters in Yerevan, where ten people were killed.
After the 2008 presidential election, Armenian opposition headed by the first president Levon Ter-Petrosyan, who was defeated by Serzh Sargsyan in the then presidential race, staged protests saying the election had been fraudulent and the results had been rigged.
The rallies ended in clashes between protesters and law enforcements. As a result, ten were killed and more than 200 injured. Many were arrested.
