Oneworld Multimedia and Kornelij Glas have updates on Lebanon-born ex-Karabakh Commander, Zhirayr Sefilyan, and his local counterpart, Vardan Malkhasyan, who have been charged with attempts to “attemtps to overthrow Armenian government”, as earlier discussed on this blog here. Both bloggers condemn the moves by the Govermnet to discredit the Karabakh war commander, and Onnik sees connections with the upcoming Parliamentary Elections.
This looks to be a very dangerous, and can only add weight to accusations that Sefilyan’s arrest was political ahead of the May parliamentary election.
