The injurd party referred to the reconciliation process, “They understand reconciliation as imposing conditions before me, so that I shall be the guilty, whereas Vardan Petrosyan will come out with clear conscience. He has killed two children and one has become a disabled, and stiil the courtroom applaud to him. Respective Court everything that Vardan and his advocates say is a lie. We did not give birth to the children for him to kill them once and then come to us so that we shall kiss his forehead. The dey will come and he will come out and look into my eyes and I have a lot of questions to ask him. No matter the punishment is six years or six and a half years. It is too little for Vardan petrosyan,” the injured party said.
