Vilik Harutyunyan’s daughter assures circumstances of her father’s death presented in the video are false For several days, some users have been sharing a video regarding the circumstances of death of Vilik Harutyunyan, PhD in Physics, Founder and Director General of Laserayin Teknika R&D.
In quest for more details, NEWS.am spoke to Vilik Harutyunyan’s daughter, Karine Harutyunyan, PhD in Physical and Mathematical sciences.
“I am familiar with the publication on my father’s death and I am frankly upset, because I regard it an exploitation of my and my family’s grief. I would like to announce that the circumstances presented in the publication are false and have nothing to do with reality. A few months before his death, my father had issues with his health and died of a heart attack 12 years ago. I would also like to add that my father was a well-known physicist and was closely cooperating with then Defense Minister Serzh Sargsyan. My father always deeply respected and revered Serzh Sargsyan both as a leader and a person. Their joint efforts were directed at preserving and developing Laserayin Teknika R&D during the period of economic crisis. I understand that various people are ready to ignore anything in this pre-election period. However, I ask everyone to abstain from discussing our family grief, the loss of my father, and making it a subject for political manipulations,” said Karine Harutyunyan.
Note: a video has surfaced on the Internet, where Ara Manoogian, a U.S.-based human rights activist, says that the death of Vilik Harutyunyan, Founder and Director General of Laserayin Teknika R&D, occurred under mysterious circumstances and, therefore, addresses a number of questions to President Serzh Sargsyan.
