Untitled[edit]

He is charged with preventing misuse of money appropriated by OFF, but reportedly permitted abuse to occur and accepted bribes? The first sentence makes no sense and contradicts the second.

He is a graduate of Melkonian, the armenian secondary school in Cyprus. I suppose he is a Cypriot ethnic armenian but I'd rather not put this in the article until it is verified.Mavros

Benon Sevan is a board member of the Armenian General Benevolent Union ([1]). He is show as an active board member on the AGBU website as of July 11, 2005 [2].

The AGBU website has quoted Mr Sevan as follows: "I had no choice but to be Armenian. I was born to Armenian parents and I grew up in a country where even if I said I was a Turk or a Greek, I wouldn’t be accepted as either. I joined the UN by accident -- I actually wanted to teach philosophy. I got caught up with the turmoil in Cyprus during the fifties and one thing led to another and it's been a wonderful career. I've done political, economic, social and administrative jobs and it has been a fulfilling and enjoyable experience." [3]

For reference, Sevan is also an idiomatic Armenian name, being the name of a lake in Armenia Lake_Sevan, and an monastery dated 874 AD Sevanavank.

Extradition[edit]

It would appear the US does have an extradition treaty with Cyprus: List of United States extradition treaties. Biruitorul 22:18, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Wounded in Canal Hotel Bombing[edit]

"In August, 2003, he was wounded in the Canal Hotel Bombing" This is almost certainly untrue and should be substantiated or deleted. Bk Read Talk 18:29, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
