3654) A New Kind of War By David Durfee Minier

"I will be the first one as an example to many more to follow." -Gourgen Yanikian

Aug 1984/ Feb 1985

David Minier, District Attorney of Santa Barbara and prosecutor in the 1973 Gourken Yanikian trial, submitted the following article to Hye Sharzhoom.

Although Minier finds no connection between the present Turkish government and the Ottoman Empire, it should be noted that, according to the Genocide Convention of the United Nations, the guilty party in a genocide is a perpetuating state, and has thus no-statute of limitations.

In view of this, though the government of the Turkish state has changed, both during and after the Ottoman Empire, the present government is judged guilty according to the Genocide Convention. The article was written in August, 1984 and includes a summary of Yanikian's life, the events of the trial, and Minier's own conclusions about the "Armenian Question":

Last Sunday the Bee published a detailed article about how the Armenian massacres of 1915 are viewed today. As noted in the article, a delayed consequence of the massacres has been, starting in 1973, a series of assassinations of Turkish diplomats and family members by Armenian terrorists.
