LAWMAKER EXPLAINS MURDERS BY ECONOMIC REASONS

Parliament member David Hovanes, a witness to 1999 parliament killings, told the ongoing trial on Friday that "these terrorists with the heart of a rabbit and brains of a bird" could not mastermind the killings without help.

David Hovanes went on to claim that the attack was fuelled by the slain prime minister Vazgen Sargsian’s drive to crackdown on corrupted officials. "To try to explain the attack by political motives is just ridiculous," he concluded, recalling Vazgen Sargisian’s visit to the USA and what he had been told there when asking for new loans. According to him, Vazgen Sargisian’s resoluteness to root out corruption and his mounting interest in how credits from lending organizations were utilized cost him his life.
