Law-enforcement agencies hinder pitching a tent at Liberty Square

  • Thursday, March 14, 23:11

Activists tried to pitch a tent at the Liberty Square for the leader of the opposition Heritage party, Raffi Hovannisian, who is in hunger strike for 5 days.

Although press-secretary of the Heritage party, Hovsep Khurshudyan, read the permission to pitch a tent aloud, policemen went on hindering its pitching.

As a result of scuffle, policemen started frisking one of the activists. The latter said that if they find something in his pockets, it will mean that policemen themselves planted fake evidence. The people that gathered at Liberty Square rebelled against the incident and started chanting: "Shame".

The Municipality has turned down the request to pitch a tent at the paved area saying  that Liberty Square is a historical and a cultural complex. Based on this decision, Hovannisian's supporters were trying to pitch the tent in the nearby green-covered area, where cafes are set up.  They said that pitching tents on green-covered areas is not prohibited by the law.
