Both the radical opposition and the authorities in Armenia are waiting for an independent investigation into the ten deaths of March 1, 2008 post-election clashes.
Vachagan Farmanyan, the father of Armen Farmanyan, one of the ten victims, says although four years have passed after the events, the murders have not been revealed. The desperate father says they do not pin hopes on anyone to disclose the murders. Even the idea of power change does not excite them.
"We live in complete despair, without any hope. We do not believe anyone," Vachagan Farmanyan told A1+.
The father says he would feel consoled if any opposition or government representative visited his son's burial site.
Mrs. Ruzanna, the mother of serviceman Tigran Abgaryan, also seeks consolation.
"No one cares to open the case and read it. After Mr. Vachagan Harutyunyan closed it and put into the drawer, no one cared to take it from the archive and have a look," says the mother.
Mrs. Ruzanna's hopes eventually died out when her husband died after two strokes. He had advised Mrs. Ruzanna to spare her nerves as no one was going to help her.
"This uncertainty kills me. I can no longer endure it," said Mrs. Ruzanna who has been living alone for a year. Her elder son is in Russia and daughter is married.
"I would like to talk to Mr. Robert Kocharyan, Serzh Sargsyan and Levon Ter-Petrosyan. I want to ask them the reasons for my son's death," she said.
To our inquiry whether the investigation was progressing, the Special Investigation Service declined to answer.
