The Council of the Evangelical Church of Yerevan reports that while being under the emotional and physical stress after the murder attempt by Gevorg Ghazaryan against the Reverant Levon Bardakjian on September 11, 2013 (http://www.religions.am/demo/eng/news/attacks-on-the-members-of-the-evangelical-church-of-yerevan-after-archimandrite-komitas%E2%80%99s-statements/) and the kidnapping event that happened with the Evangelical church secretary on the 13th of September, as well as the shooting incident on the church’s vehicle on September 18th, to our extreme surprise, the same person, Gevorg Ghazaryan, who did the murder attempt, in the afternoon of the 15th of October appeared again at the cafe adjacent to the Evangelical Church of Yerevan asking again about Rev. Levon Bardakjian.
What has been even more disappointing and discouraging for us was to be informed at the Police Department that the Police has not yet made a final decision on this criminal case violating the Criminal Code on judicial procedures which requires to make a decision 10 days after the report is given at the Police Station. Therefore the Church community expresses their serious concern about not feeling secure having the Police officers acting contrary to the Criminal law.
