The relatives of lieutenant Tigran Simonyan, who died in NKR on February 10, do not consider the details of the incident, presented to them by the military commissariat staff members, reasonable, reported the Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly Vanadzor office, whose representatives have once again visited the Simonyan family.
According to the information presented by the military commissariat staff, the incident occurred at a military post, when Tigran and his fellow serviceman heard a dog barking; they came out to check the situation. The young men ran in different directions and at one point met each other, at which point the soldier’s fellow released a shot which gave Tigran a fatal wound.
However, the relatives do not consider this situation to be reasonable, because they don’t think the young men would shoot toward each other, especially if they knew there was the possibility of coming face to face with each other in the area.
“I don’t want to blame anyone, but my Tigran had problems with no one,” said Tigran’s mother, Armanush Simonyan.
