Father of detainees in Proshyan governor murder case claims sons innocent

The father of the two brothers detained over the assassination of Hrach Muradyan, the governor of the Proshyan village (Kotayk region), has denied his sons’ complicity in the crime.
In an open letter to Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, Chief of Police Vladimir Gasparyan and Prosecutor General Aghvan Hovsepyan, Arshak Petrosyan says he is unclear about the motives behind the inquest body’s decision to suspect his sons of the tragic incident.
The brothers, Arayik Petrosyan and Artak Petrosyan, were detained on April 3, hours after the village governor was found dead outside his office. Their father now claims that there were no objective reasons for detaining his sons.“Not having any objective fact bearing a direct relationship to the incident, the inquest body cites my son’s face and the ‘antimony’ substance found inside his car as a gunshot result.
My son has given a relevant explanation in this connection, saying that he had dealt with his cars batteries which, as specialist say, also contain the substance known as antimony. In my deepest conviction, nonetheless, my sons didn’t have any motive for committing such a crime. What’s even more, they maintained normal, human relations with late Muradyan,” reads the letter.
Petrosyan says further that his family is also interested in a fair proceeding that would lead the inquest body to resolve the crime within the shortest possible timeframes and establish accountability measures against those guilty.
He expresses concerns over what he calls artificial attempts to convince the public that his sons really had conflicts with the late governor. All that, according to him, is aimed at finding “traces” to “justify” the detainees’ relationship with the incident.
Petrosyan calls for measures to take the proceeding under direct control, ensuring maximum permissible transparency and publicity.
