Pan Armenian Council of Western U.S. Calls on Newsom to Release Hampig Sassounian

The Pan Armenian Council of Western United States, a coalition of the 24 leading religious entities and organizations representing a broad spectrum of the Armenian-American community in California, on Sunday sent a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom calling “for a just decision to release Hampig Harry Sassounian on humanitarian grounds.”

Last month, despite the state board’s decision to grant Sassounian parole, Newsom opted to deny him the chance to be released from prison.
