Monte Melkonian’s Family Appeals for Release of Alec Yenikomshian

To: President Serzh Sargsyan, Republic of Armenia

Date: July 28, 2016

Dear Sir:

We have learned with great concern of the detention by the National Security Service on July 27 of life-long patriot, Ara Alec Yenikomshian. Mr. Yenikomshian has for decades been engaged in charitable work in Armenia and with the improvement of a country he loves more than anything else. He has devoted life and limb to the benefit of the Armenian homeland, and he was one of the closest and most trusted comrades of your former comrade-in-arms, Armenian national hero Monte Melkonian. Despite suffering great physical wounds in the process of his patriotic activities, Alec continues to work for the good of Armenia. Mr. Yenikomshian is an extraordinary patriot, conscientious and dedicated to civil debate and to the lawful, peaceful improvement of the country’s institutions. We join our voices to the many others who request that he be released immediately from police custody.
