News items and theories abound...

I first saw this on HNazarian's blog, and it is in the news as well. Armen Sargsyan is confirmed to have been arrested and accused of treason for allegedly leaking documents of Order #0038, which revealed that the preparation for military involvement in the March 1 events occurred on February 23. This recently got PACE in a huff, and according to the draft resolution apparently they now think March 1 was Coup d'Etat attempt. A tad slow, methinks, but that's another story.
Armen Sargsyan, by the way, is the cousin of the late Vazgen Sargsyan. And here is the PACE document from 3 February, 2010, calling it a Coup d'Etat.

Speaking of PACE, the Political Prisoners Committee and the Youth Committee of the Armenian National Congress had sent out a letter to Ambassador Yanez Lenarcic
Director, OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, arguing for the public release of the March 1 report. Here it is, in English, and in Armenian.
Interestingly enough, there have been some rumblings about Pashinyan recently, including by PACE.

And just today, SIL group was invaded by the police department, and Saribek Sukiasyan, brother of Khatachur Sukiasyan, was taken in to custody. The theories abound as to why, but there is no clear answer, yet. I first saw that one on Aramazd's blog, and the comments are accumulating quickly...
