Vahram is at home at present, and is in a bad condition. “I have a horrible headache now. They beat me strongly. I can’t speak. I called the police. The case is under investigation,” Vahram Sahakyan said in the conversation with the editor of blognews Aram Antinyan. The official information about the case will be presented soon.
