Yegnukian’s lawyer, Tigran Hayrapetyan, told Hetq that the state investigator in the case told the court on several occasions that no incriminating evidence against Yegnukian had been presented due to pre- investigation “secrecy”. Hayrapetyan described the statement as ludicrous. It turns out that during the two months of Yegnukian’s detention no such investigation has even been carried out. Hayrapetyan, a father of five, told his lawyer that he still hopes that one day common sense would win out and that a fair trial would be possible in Armenia. Yegnukian said that he was being persecuted for his political beliefs and was ready to face the challenge.
