A struggle was waged
We learned about this from the bill of indictment of the criminal case brought forth to investigate the circumstances of Khalafyan’s death, which was been sent to the Kotayk District Court of First Instance. “There is a tear under the left arm of Vahan Khalafyan’s sweater which is a result of mechanical stretching,” states the bill of indictment. This means that at some point during the time that he was being subjected to violence, the 24 year-old young man tried to resist. This destroys the explanation proposed in the indictment that Khalafyan, after being tortured, and in a beaten state, took the knife from the shelf and stabbed himself twice. Next Tuesday the proceedings of this case will begin, and four policemen will be in the defendants’ seats.
