Police announce arrests in Proshyan village mayor murder case

The Armenian Police on Thursday announced “arrests” in the case of the murder of a village mayor that many immediately linked to politics.

On April 2, Hrach Muradyan, 50, was found dead near the administrative building of the village of Proshyan where he was elected mayor last autumn. The police said Muradyan sustained a fatal gunshot in the temple.

The Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun), of which Muradyan was a member, as well as other opposition parties and groups, condemned the crime, immediately linking it to the man’s political views and activities as mayor. They called for a prompt and comprehensive investigation of all circumstances of the crime and revelation and punishment of those who committed and organized it.
