Dear Turkish American Community and Friends of Turkey
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 sign petition to urge Governor Brown to stop the parole.
