Urge California Governor Jerry Brown to Deny Parole to Terrorist Hampig Sassounian
On December 14, the California Department of Corrections Parole Board found inmate Hampig Sassounian, # C88440 suitable for parole.
Sassounian entered prison on June 29, 1984. He is at San Quentin Prison, which is a maximum security facility where notable assassins have been inmates, such as Sirhan Sirhan, who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy and Jang In-hwan, who assassinated American diplomat Durham Stevens. Sassounian's previous parole requests had been denied because of his violent extremism in advocating the Armenian allegation of genocide, which poses a public safety risk.
Under California law, Governor Brown has the ability to stop Sassounian's release on parole.
Assembly of Turkish American Associations (ATAA) is urging all Turkish Americans and friends of Turkey to send letters, faxes, and emails to Governor Brown in order to urge him to stop the parole.
Please communicate to Governor Brown and his Staff today and get your voice heard!
