AMERICAN SERVICEMEN IN THE PERSIAN GULF. ONE WEEK INTO THE WAR,
THE IRAQI PRESIDENT IS WELL ESTABLISHED IN THEIR MINDS AS A DEMON.
AGAIN AND AGAIN, THEY SPEAK OF THEIR OPPONENTS IN THE SINGULAR.
JUST AS THE CONFLICT IN SEEN IN IRAQ AS "BUSH'S WAR," IN THE MIND

Of- THE AMERICAN SOLDIER,; IT MIGHT WELL BE SADDAM HUSSEIN WHO


PERSONALLY FIRES EACH SCUD MISSILE AND MANS EACH ANTI-AIRCRAFT
GUN. "WE SHOULD PUT HIM OUT OF BUSINESS. IF WE WAIT TWO OR THREE

HIS WEAPONS WOULD BE USED AGAINST U.S. TROOPS. A LONGTIME U.S.
RESIDENT, HE WAS BORN IN LEBANON. HIGH-TECH U.S. WEAPONS, HE SAID
WERE DEVELOPED WITH EUROPE IN MIND, NOT DESERT EXTREMES OF WIND,
SAND, HEAT AND COLD. "THE IRAQIS DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ELECTRONIC IT'S SIMPLE, SECOND-CLASS CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS -MADE AND DESIGNED
FOR THEIR TERRITORY," HE SAID. "OUR EQUIPMENT IS SO PRECISE AND
SO COMPLICATED THAT IT'S NOT FOR THIS TYPE OF TERRITORY.... IT

ARMY GEN. SCHlVARZKOPF DISMISSED IRAQI CLAIMS THAT U.S. AND ALLIED
WARPLANES ARE ROUTINELY HITTING CIVILIAN TARGETS, ESPECIALLY IN
BAGHDAD- HE SAID "THERE IS NO QUESTION" THAT MUCH OF THE NONMILITARY DAMAGE BEING SHOWN TO FOREIGN REPORTERS IN BAGHDAD WAS
CAUSED BY IRAQI ANTI-AIRCRAFT MISSILES THAT MISSED THEIR MARK AND
FELL BACK TO EARTH. SPEAKING TO,A SMALL GROUP OF JOURNALISTS,

SCHWARZKOPF SAID U.S. PILOTS, WHO HAVE FLOWN MORE THAN 40,000
SORTIES, ARE TAKING EXTRAORD1NARY" CARE, BEYOND ANYTHING IN THE
HISTORY OF AIR WARFARE, TO AVOID CIVILIAN CASUALTIES. HE SAID THE
AIR STRIKES HAVE SO DISRUPTED IRAQ'S MILITARY COMMUNICATIONS AND
COMMAND STRUCTURE THAT SENIOR OFFICERS ARE MOVING THEIR

HEADQUARTERS INTO SCHOOLS BECAUSE "THEY KNOW WE'RE NOT GOING TO


ATTACK CIVILIAN TARGETS." ASKED WHETHER THAT INHIBITED HIS
ABILITY TO ATTACK, SCHWARZKOPF SAID, "IN ALL PROBABILITY, YES."
BUT HE SAID HE WAS NOT CONCERNED. COMPARING THE AMERICANS WITH
THE "WHITE HATS" AND IRAQI WITH THE "BLACK HATS" W OLD WESTERN
MOVIES; THE 56-YEAR-OLD COMMANDER SAID: 'GUYS IN WHITE HATS DON'T

DO THAT. GUYS IN BLACK HATS ARE ALLOWED TO SHOOT PEOPLE IN THE


BACK, HIDE BEHIND ROCKS; ALL THAT SORT OF STUFF. WE ARE A MORAL
AND ETHICAL PEOPLE, AND I LIKE TO THINK 1 AM, AND THEREFORE WE`RE
NOT GOING TO DO BUSINESS THAT WAY. THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS,

YES, IT GIVES THEM AN ADVANTAGE, BUT WE ARENOT GOING TO REDUCE


OURSELVES TO THAT LEVEL OF MORAL CONDUCT JUST TO EVEN THE SCORE."

SAID HE HOPES IRAQ'S CLAIM OF 321 CIVILIAN CASUALTIES FROM ALLIED

BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG," SCHWARZKOPF SAID. "I WOULD ALSO SAY THAT

IF THE NUMBER'S ONLY 821 I'M QUITE ENCOURAGED BY THAT,. BECAUSE IF


THEY FOLLOW THESAME POLICIES WITH REGARD TO THAT AS THEY'VE

SERIOUS ARE THE THREATS TO HIS GOVERNMENT FROM THE PERUVIAN

DECISION APPARENTLY WITHOUT PROTEST. THE PERUVIAN ARMED


FORCES HAVE AFFIRMED THEIR ALLEGIANCE TO CONSTITUTIONAL
ORDER AND WE EXPECT THEY WILL HONOR THAT COMMITMENT.
PRESIDENT FUJIMORI HAS TAKEN ACTION AGAINST THE INFLUENCE OF
EX-INTELLIGENCE ADVISER MONTESINOS BY REASSIGNING MILITARY
OFFICERS BELIEVED TO BE SUPPORTIVE OF MONTESINOS, AND HE HAS
ORDERED A SEARCH TEAM TO LOCATE MR. MONTESINOS AND TURN HIM
OVER TO JUDICIAL AUTHORITIES.
THE PROTEST ACTION BY A SINGLE MILITARY UNIT IN SOUTHERN

PERU APPEARS TO BE AN ISOLATED INCIDENT INVOLVING A


DISGRUNTLED ARMY LIEUTENANT COLONEL. HIS CALLS FOR

NATIONWIDE MILITARY ACTION HAVE NOT MATERIALIZED AND THE


ARMY HAS CONDEMNED HIS INSUBORDINATION AND SENT UNITS TO

ARREST HIM AND HIS REMAINING FOLLOWERS.


Q: WHAT ABOUT STATEMENTS BY THE POLITICAL OPPOSITION
PRAISING THE ACTIONS BY THE ARMY LIEUTENANT COLONEL?
DOESN'T THIS SHOW THAT FUJIMORI'S PRESIDENCY IS ILLEGITIMATE

AND HE SHOULD STEP DOWN NOW?


A: WHILE WE CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THE ELECTORAL PROCESS WHICH
RETURNED PRESIDENT FUJIMORI TO OFFICE WAS DEEPLY FLAWED,
PRESIDENT FUJIMORI HAS TAKEN SEVERAL POSITIVE STEPS OVER THE
PAST WEEKS TOWARDS RESTORING DEMOCRACY. WE EXPECT PRESIDENT
FUJIMORI TO UPHOLD HIS COMMITMENT TO HOLD NEW ELECTIONS, IN

WHICH HE WILL NOT RUN, AND TO STEP DOWN IN JULY WHEN A NEW
PRESIDENT IS INAUGURATED.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE PERUVIAN POLITICAL
OPPOSITION CONTINUES TO ENGAGE IN DIALOGUE WITH THE

GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE OAS-SPONSORED TALKS ON DEMOCRATIC


REFORM. APRIL 8, 2001 HAS BEEN AGREED UPON AS THE DATE FOR
NEW ELECTIONS AND DISCUSSION NOW FOCUSES ON REFORMS TO THE
ELECTORAL AND JUDICIAL SYSTEMS.

THAT FORMER PERUVIAN SPY CHIEF MONTESINOS BROKERED THE.SALE


OF WEAPONS FROM JORDAN TO PERU, AND THEN DIVERTED THEM TO

THE COLOMBIAN FARC GUERRILLAS?

PROSECUTORS TO INVESTIGATE VARIOUS CHARGES AGAINST


MR. MONTESINOS, INCLUDING CHARGES OF CORRUPTION. WE WILL
FOLLOW THIS INVESTIGATION CLOSELY.
Q: WAS PRESIDENT FUJIMORI AWARE OF THIS ARMS DEAL?
DIDN'T HE AND MONTESINOS WORK HAND IN HAND?
A: WE ARE NOT AWARE OF ANY EVIDENCE LINKING PRESIDENT
FUJIMORI TO THIS SALE. THE GOVERNMENT OF PERU HAS STATED
THAT THE PURCHASERS OF THE WEAPONS MISREPRESENTED THEMSELVES
AS AGENTS OF THE PERUVIAN GOVERNMENT AND USED FORGED
DOCUMENTS STATING THAT THE PERUVIAN MILITARY WAS THE
INTENDED END USER.

Q: WAS THE USG AWARE OF THE SALE?


A: PRIOR TO THE SIGNING OF THE CONTRACT, THE JORDANIAN
GOVERNMENT ASKED THE UNITED STATES WHETHER WE WOULD OBJECT

TO WHAT THE JORDANIANS BELIEVED WAS A LEGITIMATE ARMS SALE


TO THE GOVERNMENT OF PERU. WE HAD NO REASON AT THAT TIME TO
BELIEVE THE SALE WAS ILLEGITIMATE.
SUBSEQUENT INFORMATION MADE IT CLEAR THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF

PERU WAS NOT THE INTENDED END USER AND THAT THE SALE WAS
THEREFORE ILLEGITIMATE. WE UNDERSTAND THAT AS SOON AS THE
JORDANIAN GOVERNMENT BECAME AWARE OF A PROBLEM, IT ACTED

QUICKLY TO TERMINATE THE CONTRACT. INFORMATION REGARDING


THE SALE WAS BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE PERUVIAN
AUTHORITIES. ARRESTS THEN TOOK PLACE.
Q: DID THE USG CONSULT WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF PERU PRIOR TO
THE SALE?
A: THE U.S. HAD NO REASON TO CONSULT PERU ABOUT THESE THIRD
PARTY SALES. IT WOULD BEST TO INQUIRE OF THE JORDANIAN

GOVERNMENT OF THEIR OWN CONSULTATIONS. WE DO NOT BROKER


ARMS SALES BETWEEN FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WHEN U.S. ARMS ARE

NOT INVOLVED. WE HAD NO REASON TO BELIEVE AT THE TIME OF


THE SALE THAT THE TRANSACTION SHOULD BE QUESTIONED.
Q: DID YOU KNOW THE ARMS WERE BEING SUPPLIED TO THE FARC?
DID YOU ADVISE THE COLOMBIAN AUTHORITIES?

A: AS ALREADY NOTED, WE DID NOT KNOW THE TRUE DESTINATION


OF THE ARMS WHEN CONSULTED ABOUT THE CASE. WE HAVE BEEN AND

REMAIN IN CLOSE TOUCH WITH THE COLOMBIA, AS WELL AS PERU AND


JORDAN, ON THIS ISSUE. AS THE COLOMBIAN GOVERNMENT HAS

STATED, IT HAS BEEN TRACKING THE SOURCE OF THE ARMS USED BY


THE FARC AND OTHER ILLEGAL ARMED GROUPS FOR SOME TIME.

Q. WHAT ARE U.S. VIEWS ON THE POSSIBLE POSTPONEMENT OF


HAITI'S ELECTIONS CURRENTLY SET FOR NOVEMBER 26?
A. THE ANNOUNCED DELAY IN HAITI'S UPCOMING PRESIDENTIAL AND
PARTIAL SENATE ELECTIONS APPEARS PRUDENT.
SUCCESSFUL HAITIAN ELECTIONS REQUIRE A NATIONAL DIALOGUE
AMONG HAITI'S POLITICAL ACTORS AND CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS TO
ADDRESS A SERIOUS ELECTORAL IMPASSE STEMMING FROM
IRREGULARITIES ASSOCIATED WITH LEGISLATIVE AND LOCAL
ELECTIONS HELD ON MAY 21.
THESE IRREGULARITIES INCLUDE A FLAWED VOTE COUNT FOR EIGHT
SENATE SEATS AND A DISCREDITED ELECTORAL COMMISSION, WHICH
IS CHARGED WITH ADMINISTERING ELECTIONS.
IN ADDITION, ADEQUATE LOGISTICAL PREPARATION IS A

PREREQUISITE FOR GOOD ELECTIONS.


HAITIAN POLITICAL LEADERS HAVE THUS FAR FAILED TO REACH AN
AGREEMENT RESOLVING THE ELECTORAL IMPASSE OR UNDERTAKE
ADEQUATE PREPARATION FOR UPCOMING ELECTIONS.
WE URGE THE GOVERNMENT OF HAITI AND HAITI'S POLITICAL
PARTIES TO TAKE THE STEPS NECESSARY TO RESOLVE THE COUNTRY'S
SERIOUS ELECTORAL IMPASSE AND HOLD ELECTIONS IN TIME TO

ENSURE AN ORDERLY TRANSFER OF POWER ON FEBRUARY 7,2001 --AS


MANDATED BY HAITI'S CONSTITUTION.

Q.. WILL THE U.S. SUPPORT HAITI'S UPCOMING ELECTIONS?


A. WE HAVE INDICATED TO THE HAITIAN GOVERNMENT THAT, ABSENT
MEANINGFUL ACTION TO ADDRESS SERIOUS ELECTORAL DEFICIENCIES,
THE UNITED STATES WOULD NOT SUPPORT PRESIDENTIAL AND
LEGISLATIVE ELECTIONS, FINANCIALLY OR THROUGH OBSERVATION

MISSIONS.
Q. WILL THE U.S. TAKE ADDITIONAL MEASURES AGAINST HAITI?

A. IN ADDITION TO WITHHOLDING SUPPORT FOR UPCOMING


ELECTIONS, THE UNITED STATES WOULD FIND IT NECESSARY TO
CHANNEL NEARLY ALL U.S. GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE TO THE PEOPLE
OF HAITI THROUGH PRIVATE AND NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS,
BYPASSING THE GOVERNMENT OF HAITI.

WE WOULD ALSO CLOSELY EXAMINE ANY PROPOSED NEW LOANS AND


GRANTS FOR HAITI FROM INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS,
BALANCING THE NEED FOR A STRONG POLITICAL MESSAGE WITH THE
DESIRE NOT TO PUNISH THE LONG-SUFFERING HAITIAN POPULATION.
Q: IS THE U.S. GIVING UP ON HAITI?
A: NO. THE UNITED STATES HAS WORKED LONG AND HARD TO
SUPPORT THE GROWTH OF DEMOCRACY IN HAITI AND TO IMPROVE
LIVING CONDITIONS FOR ITS PEOPLE. DESPITE OUR DEEP

DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE INTRANSIGENCE OF THE HAITIAN

GOVERNMENT, WE WILL CONTINUE TO PURSUE OUR INTERESTS IN


HAITI. WE WILL NOT ABANDON THE PEOPLE OF HAITI.

2. CA PRESS GUIDANCE, NOVEMBER 1, 2000:
- MEXICO: EVICTION OF AMCITS IN BAJA CALIFORNIA
CONCLUDED --

Q: ANY UPDATE ON THE EVICTION OF SOME 200 AMERICAN


RESIDENTS OF ENSENADA, MEXICO?
A: BY THE END OF THE DAY YESTERDAY (TUES. 10/31), EVICTIONS

BASICALLY CONCLUDED
A SMALL NUMBER OF AMERICANS HAVE MANAGED TO NEGOTIATE WITH
THE NEW LANDOWNERS TO REMAIN TEMPORARILY IN THEIR HOMES

THE GREAT MAJORITY, HOWEVER, HAVE PACKED THEIR BELONGINGS


AND DEPARTED

SOME HAVE PUT THEIR BELONGINGS INTO STORAGE; OTHERS HAVE


RELOCATED DIRECTLY TO THE UNITED STATES
U.S. CONSULAR OFFICIALS FROM BOTH TIJUANA AND MEXICO CITY

CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE TO ASSIST HOWEVER POSSIBLE.


Q: DOES THE U.S. GOVERNMENT BELIEVE THE MEXICAN SUPREME
COURT RULING THAT LED TO THESE EVICTIONS WAS CORRECT?

A: THE AMERICAN CITIZEN HOMEOWNERS ARE THE UNFORTUNATE


VICTIMS OF A LAND DISPUTE BETWEEN TWO GROUPS OF MEXICANS.
WE HAD HOPED THAT THE U.S. CITIZENS AND THE MEXICAN CITIZENS
TO WHOM THE MEXICAN SUPREME COURT AWARDED THE LAND WOULD BE
ABLE TO NEGOTIATE A SETTLEMENT.
THIS WAS OBVIOUSLY NOT POSSIBLE FOR MOST FAMILIES.

If Miami's assessment of subject's activities is correct--


deliberate violations and/or circumventions of u. s. laws where
appropriate--such activity violates a myriad of statutes and
regulations under jurisdiction of numerous federal agencies.
Where subject operates under u. s. corporations and/or uses u. s.
registered aircraft, his activities touch on the jurisdictions
or regulations of Treasury, u. s. Customs, ATF, INS, Commerce,
FAA, State Department Office of Munitions Control, etc., depending
upon the .transaction, commodity(ies), and mode of shipment.

To proceed, M;ami recommends we begin by determining

Helicopter! Bell Helicopter, and Customs Armor Manufacturing


Co~any.
n this regard, these companies should be contacted
to determine if subject has in fact been a party to negotiations
with these companies and if so, to determine and ascertain subject's
procurement practices and representations.

DALLAS AND LOS ANGELES ARE

~UESTED

TO CONCEAL

AND TO REFRAIN. FROM MAKING

'

e.

Determine if that company has been a party to


negotiations for the sale of helicopters to Iraq. Determine
subject's role in the negotiations. Ascertain subject's
procurement practices and representations. Determine if
. Bell Helicopter has received "feedback" from its major
suppliers or subcontractors indicating possible contacts
by subject or Iraqi Government officials relating to
equipment, avionics, or weapon systems that fit helicopters
manufactured by Bell. Determine if Bell representatives
traveled to Baghdad, Iraq, during F~brua:r or March, 1983,
with subject, subject's role, and subject s relationship
with Iraq.

For background of recipients, the Hunchak Party is the


oldest of the three Armenian political parties. The other two
are the Ramgavar Party and the Tashnag Party (ARF). The Hunchak
Party has not been a significant factor in the Armenian community
within the United Stated. Rivalries between the political
parties do exist, but this rivalry is seen only in Lebanon. As
information has not been received by the FBI that indicates the
Hunchak Party aids and abets terrorism, the fBI has no
investigative justification in this area.

On January 12, 1987, a source of proven


reliability with an established historical knowiedge.
of Canadian Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF)

Source had no knowl tlge of the purported
1976 discussions by Toronto Ar enian Secret Army for
the Libe ation of Armenia (AS A members to infiltrate
the Hun hak Party. ASALA al ays considered the Hunchak
Party
potentla source of recruits, though inferior

ASALA Leader Killed


ATHENS, Greece - Greek authorities
have identified a Middle East man killed
in Athens last
ursday, April 28, as
Hago Ha o an or A o A o ia the
Armenian Secret Army for
leader of
the Liberation of Armenia.
The Ministry of Public Order said
Hagopian, 41, was killed outside his
house in the old Phaleron suburb, a
fashionable seaside area, at 4:30 a.m.
by two masked gunmen with sawed-off
shotguns. One man pumped two
rounds at his chest and head as he was
waiting for a taxi to take him to Athens
airport. He then fired two more bullets
~~ .Hagopian tried- to-run~ Hi~ wife ancf
a woman identified as his sister-in-law
were with him in the street but none of
them was hurt in the attack.
There was no immediate claim of
responsibility for Hagopian's killing. The
gunmen got away in a pick-up truck left
parked across the street from his home.
"It's hard to say who hit him," said a
U.S. intelligence official in Washington.
"He was not a nice character by any
stretch of the imagination. He was certainly a very wanted man."
On Saturday, Turkey denied that it
had anything to with the killing. Foreign
Ministry spokesman Inat Batu said such
claims are absurd. "Turkey never used
these methods in dealing with terrorism." ASALA in a communique
released in Beirut fast Friday had accused Turkey and "imperialist allies" of
masterminding the assassination of
Hagopian. Similar accusations were
published in Greek newspapers.
A police source said Hagopian had
been living in Greece with his wife and
two children for the past year as a
Lebanese businessman called Henri Titizian. He was planning to transfer funds
to Athens from businesses he was selling in Lebanon and wanted to open a
supermarket.

t9

During questioning by

pian's wife, Janil Titizian, who was identified as a Yugoslav national, said her
husband had recently arrived from
South Yemen and was on his way to
Belgrade, Yugoslavia. She said her husband used numerous passports. "Our
identification of Hagopian is based on
her insistence," said a senior police
officer.
Hagopian was first identified as Abdul Mohammed Kashim, 39, from a
South Yemen diplomatic passport he
was carrying. Even the Hagopian name
was believed to be an alias, according
to security offici!!ls f!!mUiar with. .the.
group's activities over the last 13 years.
Reuter news agency quoted French
police sources as saying his real name
was Bedros Havanassian, a native of
Iraq. He was also known as Mihran
Mihranian.

In Paris, the Armenian Democratic


Front, a rival group, said in a communique that Kashim and Hagopian were the
same man.
On Friday, an Athens coroner reexamined Hagopian's body, seeking
conclusive proof of his identity. Thesecond autopsy was cr'nducted after
police received calls 1om Armenian
groups in Athens claiming that Hagopian had been killed during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982. "I was told
to look for a scar and I found a big one
on the outside of his left knee. It was
several years old and may have been
caused by a bullet," the coroner said.
Armenian sources said the scar was probably from a wound Hagopian received
from a 1976 assassination attempt on his
person.

Continued from page 17

Earlier, the government said it did not


know the ASALA leader had been living in Greece. The spokesman said
Premier Andreas Papandreou was returning early from a visit to Italy because
of the killing.
In recent months little had been
heard of Hagopian and Armenian
sources said he was suffering from
cancer.
Hagopian, who immigrated to
Lebanon from Iraq with his family in the
early 60's, was active in the extremist
Palestinian guerrilla movement under
George Habbash, where he was known
as "Moujahid." In 1975, he .0unded

passport he was carrying.

and ran the Marxist-oriented terrorist
group from Beirut. In the early '80s,
Hagopian approached Abou Nidal,
another hard-line Palestinian leader, and
became one of his aides. His men
received training and even salaries from
the Palestinian organization, and Hagopian aligned his ideology with that of his
Palestinian patrons, claiming tha: ""-

two organizations were one and the


same." From 1975 to 1983, ASALA
claimed more than 50 terrorist attacks
against Turkish targets. The group
claimed the assassination of a Turkish
diplomat in Athens in 1980, one of more
than 30 ~assassinations of Turkish
diplomats and their family members in
the United States and Europe. In
August of 1982, a commando of the
group attacked Ankara airport, killing 10
and wounding 72. In July of 1983, a
bomb placed by ASALA at the Turkish
Airlines desk at Orly Airport in Paris killed eight people and left 56 injured in
what was called the bloodiest attack
committed in France by a terrorist
organization. Hagopian was wanted in
France for planning that act, for which
~nother ASALA leader, Varoujan Garbidjian, was later sentenced to life
imprisonment.
According to the French newspaper
La Liberation, Hagopian, also known as
"the Armenian Carlos," arrived in Paris
in the April of 1983 to revive his agents
and plan the Orly attack. After three
days of contacts and planning with
several Armenians, Hagopian left Paris,
not knowing that the French secret service had been following him all the time.

rid of his involvement in their organizatiQn . Ha~gppjan, thinking. he was in
France incognito, unknowingly led the
French DST agents into his terrorist network, thus enabling the arrest of his accomplices in the Orly bombing.
Immediately after the indiscriminate
Orly explosion, which did not follow the
aim originally set by ASALA of targeting
Turkish diplomats and interests, there
was a split in the ranks of the group.
Monte Melkonian, the No. 2 leader,
founded the ASALA-MR (Mouvement
Revolutionnaire), while in France the
Armenian National Movement denounced Hagopian's crimes, which earned
the leader of MNA, Ara Toranian, an
assassination attempt.
Hagopian was referred to as the
"madman" for his slaughterous and
cruel inclinations by his former friends.
who condemned him to death. This internecine feud among the factions of
ASALA resulted in several deaths. In
one confrontation in the Bekaa Valley
in the southeast of the Lebanon, four
people were killed, two on each side.

become a gun for hire. They had fallen


on hard times," he said. Hagopian was
associated with international drug trafficking, according to Armenian and
police sources. He worked as a
mercenary with extremist Middle East
groups. He also was known to have had
rivals, critics and enemies within various
factions of the worldwide Armenian
community and was suspected of having ordered the executions of Armenian
leaders in Beirut in recent years.
Hagopian has on several occasions
been det ared dead in fictitious incidents
and his ability to escape arrest became
legendary. He was believed to have died
in an Israeli bombardment of West
Beirut in 1982. ASALA released a death
notice deploring the death of its leader,
saying Hagopian had died on July 30
from the wounds suffered in the bombardment. The group even appealed to
"the Armenian nation worldwide,
especially in France, to pray for his
soul."
Six years later, the same scenario has
been played. This time, in Athens, the
curtain will not rise again on Hagopian.

Assa~ination
of ASALA Leader Is Queried by Greek Authorities
'.
.

new York's Independent Armenian newsweekly


THURSDAY, MAY 5,1988

ATHENS, Greece (Wire services) - The body qf a man


believed to be the leader of an
Armenian terrorist group was
~ re-examined 18stf11tMy to settle
questions- about-his identity.
. Police said Hagop Hagopian,
~er of the Armenian Secret
Ari'ny for the liberation of Armenia, was g'ul1oed .;iQWJl in front of
his suburban Athens "home
before dawn Thursday. The
government said it didn't know
Hagopian had been living in
Greece.
Hagopian had posed as a Lebanese businessman and carried
South Yemeni diplomatic
passport - and later as Henri
Titizian.
"Authorities in Greece didn't
know 'the. real identity Qf \hE1 vi~
fim," government spokesman
Sotiris Kostopoulos said.
The government also
announced that Premier
Andreas Papandreou was cutting short a visit to Italy because
of the killing.
Coroner Christos Lefkides
conducted a second autopsy
after police received calls from
Armenian groups here claiming
that Hagopian had been killed
during the Israeli invasion of
Lebanon in 1982.
"I was told to look for a sc;ar
and I found a big one on the outside of his left knee. It was several years old and may have
been caused by a bullet," Lefkides said in an interview.
Hagopian reportedly was
wounded in the legs during a
1976 assassination attempt in
Lebanon.
The dead man's wife, identified as Janil Titizian, told investigators last week her husband
was Hagopian. Reports from
Paris also claimed the victim
was Hagopian and theorized he
was killed by a rival Armenian

- '

terrorist group.
In Beirut, the Armenian Secret
Army identified the dead man as
Minas Ohannissian, who was
also known as Hagop Hagopian.
The group said Hagopian was
fired from the organization at
the end of 1987.
The guerrilla organization
accused Turkey of masterminding Hagopian's assassination.
"This act has been done by
imperialist powers and their fascist ally, Turkey," the group said
In a typewritten statement.
"Despite his dismissal, it is our
duty to investigate his a~ssi
nation and bring the culprits to
account," the statement said.
Hagopian was kill~ ~ ~ gl.lnman -who pumped four slugs
into his head and chest from a
sawed-off shotgun. The attack
occurred at 4:30 a.m. while he

Turkey

was waiting for a taxi to take him


to Athens Airport for a flight to
Belgrade.
A police source said Mrs.
Titizian was back in the couple's
apartment in the Old Phaleron
suburb with her two-month old
baby, and a police guard.
Western diplomatic sources
said members of Hagopian's
group moved freely in and out of
Athens, where the organization's political wing, the Armenian Popular Movement, is based.
The sources said the terrorist
group had been dormant since
1984 but operated training
installations in South Yemen.
Hagopian dropped out of
sight after the Israeli invasion of
lebanon, but resurfaced in 1983
to-mastel'min<:f8 50mb aftack on
the Turkish Airlines desk at Orly
Airport Paris that killed eight
people and wounded 56.

D~nies

Invol-v ement

ANKARA, Turi(ey- The Turi(ish government last Saturday denied


involvement in the assassination of a man believed to be the
leader of an Armenian terrorist group.
The man, identified as Hagop Hagopian, was shot and killed
last Thursday outside his home in Athens, Greece, in an attack
by two masked men.
The group Hagopian founded and led, the Armenian Secret
Army for the Liberation of Armenia, accused Turkey and "imperialist allies" last Friday of masterminding the killing. Greek
newspapers published similar claims.
But Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman lnal Batu said,
"such claims are absurd. Turkey never used these methods in
dealing with terrorism."
No one claimed responsibility for Hagopian's killing.
One report, from the Armenian Secret Army in Beirut,
Lebanon said Hagopian was fired from the organization in late
1987.
The organization, founded in 1975, has taken responsibility
for more than 60 attacks against Turkish targets, including the
killings of about 30 turkish diplomats and dependents in western Europe and the United States. His group said it carried out
the July 1983 bombing of the Turkish Airlines desk at Orly
Airport in Paris that killed eight people and injured 56.

; account of birthday party
By TOM FIEDLER

H~rczl4 Politiccl Editor

Contrary to her public explana


tion, Sen. Paula Hawkins skipped
.a Jan. 25 birthday party for her
attended by nearly 1,000 support
ers because she had been alerted
by campaign ad\1sers that a CBS
crew fo'( the program 60 Minutes
would be there, the program's
producer said Tuesday.
The Sunday night broadcast
focused on Miamlbased lnterna
tlonalarms merchant Sarkis Sogh
.analian, but mentioned the Haw
kins party because Soghanalian
was a host.
,
Sixty Minutes producer Lowell
Bergman said In a tel~phone
Interview from California that he
was aware the show's account,
done by correspondent Diane Sawyer, co:1tradieted Hawkins' repeat
ed claims that she missed the party
because It had been kept a secret

Re: Search Request re: Sarkis $oghanalian
Dear Ms~.__ ____,
This letter is to COJ.lfirm our conversation today regarding this office's request for a search
of intelligence files on the above-named subject.

This office is conducting a criminal investigation of Sarkis Soghanalian and others in a


bank fraud and money laundering scheme. This scheme works as follows: a number of
:individuals would recruit various individuals to steal blank cashier's checks from bariks and to
convert the checks into cash by conducti:ng a series of monetary transactions at casinos and other
:financial institutions. At least two such checks were stolen from a' bank and made payable in the
amounts of$300,000 and $3 million. The $3 million ca5hier's check was fraudulently m~de to
T.I.D.R., a company believed to be controlled by Soghanalian, who attempted to cash the check
at a bank in Paris in August 1995.
Through various co-conspirators who have cooperated with the government, and through
other channels,. we have learned that Soghanalian has provided infonnation to the goveriunent 11
H in the paSt. Soghanalian was jndicted ~d found gtiil!Y in tJte_~ly_199Q's for ~?5P.O~ing annsjiL.
.. (\S the Iran-Contra matter. .He has Claimed to have connection with high government officials and
. . . '};- A~t to have provided sensitive infonnation to the government. It is unclear where Soghanalian
,...
resides pennanep.tiYfliowever, he is"kiiown to spendalot of time in Paris.

It is my belief that there is likely infonnation on Soghanalian in CIA and/or other intelligence
U files which may affect this office's indictment strategies and charging deCisions. One of the

claims that Soghanalian may raise is that_!l~~yv'~_operating in somce C5)Vert ~n.telligence_c.apaclty


tt for t!le -~ove~~~t ~~!l~~t!l.~~~~~~5'.~.!~_qu~sti~l?-~-- ~d ~~un~ -~~gust and ~e_ptemb~r. '1

_piioi.toJndictment. In addition, to the extent tliat there are security concerns relating to any ,
t indictment of Soghanaliail, 1~wouid li}(~~dresiffi.empreemptive.ly~ Hence,Tbelieve that all
lffiee critena'Set1o'itii"lnOS".AKr979o.2ioB are satisfied in this case.

In

Soghanalian is believed to have been born in Beirut, on February 6, 1929. His ci~izenship
is unknown. He has a social security number of 051 34 1708. His place of residence in
California at one point was 37641 Peacock Circle, Rancho Mirage, CA. "He is believed to have
owned or had an interest in a company named T.I.D.R (believed to be an abbreviation for Trans
International Development Association), a Swiss entity.
In this regard, this office requests that you a5k the relevant components of the intelligence
community to _conduct a search of Sarkis Soghanalian's files to detennine whether Soghanalian
~ has _had or ~-~~!i~liE.?-S an}'.lilatiOiisliip_-wm1~anY:inteiligence. agency.and.whetiier~y.payments 14
(or o_!!!_e~ -~~_ne~_t__oJ.PIO.IDi$~s)_.have~been.made_to..him. This office plans on indicting
Soghanalian and his co-conspirators in the shortly. A response to this request would enable this
office to address any intelligence issues before presenting the matter to the Grand Jury.
