Head of the Republican faction Galust Sahakyan does not believe that Armenia's second President could be the author of the statement condemning National Assembly's decision to strip Mp Vartan Oskanian of his immunity.
"The wording and the mode of thinking are not characteristic of the second President," said the Republican official.
Mr. Sahakyan could not say which words he found strange in the text. "I cannot invent words instead of others," he said.
With regard to Kocharyan's statement that by stripping Oskanian of parliamentary mandate the National Assembly discredited itself, NA Vice-Speaker Eduard Sharamzanov said, "People decided who is discredited."
Are there any public or state institutions in Armenia that operate outside the law? And should there be such institutions?" he said.
The Minister hurried to console all those who are concerned over Oskanian's fate.
"The accusations do not smear the ex-foreign minister's career," he said.
Armenia's second President Robert Kocharyan today issued a statement relating to National Assembly's decision to strip former Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian of his parliamentary immunity. The ex-president wondered why the National Security Service, Prosecutor General's Office and National Assembly should be interested in the good relations between John Huntsman,Vartan Oskanian and his Civilitas Foundation.
