Product Description

“The Case of Misak Torlakian” is about the trial of Misak Torlakian, an Armenian Ottoman subject, by the British Military Court, which took place at 10:00 A.M. on August 11, 1921, on the charge of murdering Binbud Khan Jivanshir, Ex-Minister of Interior of Azerbajian, outside the Pera Palace Hotel in Constantinople (Istanbul) on July 18, 1921. “The Case of Misak Torlakian” is the twin of “The Case of Soghomon Tehlirian”. Both trials involved the murder of a tyrant, and both of the perpetrators were found not guilty. During both trials, history, theology, philosophy, physiology, psychology, and politics were invoked by both sides to sway the Military Judge in the case ot Torlakian, and the Jury of Peers in the case of Tehlirian. Thus in addition to being landmark legal cases, these two trials reveal the prevailing mindsets and political strategies of Germans, Turks, Armenians and Azeris in the aftermath of World War I.
