Authorities Ban Entry of Alexandre Varbedian Into Armenia; Held in Zvartnots Transit Lounge

12:29, April 4, 2013

Friends and relatives have issued a public letter to President Serzh Sargsyan demanding to know why Alexandre Varbedian, a French citizen, is being held in the transit lounge of Yerevan’s Zvartnots Airport and not being allowed into the country.

Armenia’s authorities have prohibited entry into Armenia for Varbedian, an ontologist and genealogist, since 2002.

They say that Varbedian, is exercising his right to enter Armenia based on the European Union’s January 10, 2013 decision to allow visa free entry to all EU member states.

Varbedian wishes to visit Armenia to celebrate his 70th birthday.
