Police officers standing on Nalbandyan street are elbowing and pushing members of I Am Against initiative who are staging a protest near the Ministry of Finance.
Four policemen have removed from the site a member of the pressure group who was trying to block the way of vehicles. Eyewitnesses say the man was taken aside and beaten up.
Valeri Osipyan, a deputy chief of the Yerevan police, has invited several members of the group to a meeting to reconsider the issue.
However, the group refused to talk to the official unless their friends were set free. Otherwise, they promised to go to the police department.
Police officers are also hindering the journalists working on the site.
