Sefilian, Other Jailed Opposition Members Released on Bail

 

YEREVAN—Armenia’s Court of Appeals on Wednesday freed opposition leader Jirayr Sefilian and six other members of his Founding Parliament on bail, with written guarantees submitted by lawmakers from the new ruling coalition.

A vocal opponent of former president Serzh Sarkisian, Sefilyan, who is a Karabakh war hero, was arrested in June 2016, ahead of Pope Francis’ much-publicized trip to Armenia, on charges of allegedly plotting a coup. He was sentenced in March, a month before Sarkisian was toppled, to 10 years in prison. Sefilian’s arrest came weeks before an armed group, calling itself Daredevils of Sassoun—Sasna Dzer, seized and occupied a police compound. The group surrendered after a two week standoff, which left two police officers dead.

None of the defendants were acquitted. The court reduced their sentences and granted them parole. In Sefilian’s case, his 10-year sentence was reduced to five and a half years.

Since the regime change in Armenia, members of Pashinyan’s Yelk bloc had been advocating for Sefilian’s release. They, together with members of businessman Gagik Tsarukian’s bloc, submitted letters to court guaranteeing the defendant’s “good behavior.”

Altogether, 12 members of the Tsarukian bloc each posted 500,000 drams (a little more than $1,000)—in all 6.5 million drams or about $13,500—to free them on bail.

Earlier in May, former presidential candidate Andreas Ghukasyan, along with Diaspora-Armenian Garo Yegnukian were released. The latest wave of court of appeals releases started in June 6, culminating in the Sefilian’s release, who is the most visible of the opposition activists, who were called political prisoners by some circles, including that of prime minister Pashinyan

PanARMENIAN.Net - The members of the civil movement Founding Parliament and the Sasna Tsrer group, which captured a police department in Yerevan in summer of 2016, have announced that they will join forces to create a party.

According to a statement posted online, the new party will participate in the upcoming snap elections to the Armenian National Assembly.

Sasna Tsrer (Daredevils of Sassoun) stormed a Yerevan police patrol department in mid-July 2016 and took everyone inside hostage. They demanded the release of opposition leader Jirair Sefilian and the resignation of then President Serzh Sargsyan. Throughout the following days, the group released the captives one by one. After negotiations that lasted a little over two weeks, the gunmen agreed to surrender to law enforcement bodies. Three police officers were killed during this period.

Many of the more than 30 members of the group, who were initially imprisoned, have recently been set free. Sefilian is among the released.
