Ara Avetisyan is said to have been relieved of his duties as Rector of State Engineering University of Armenia. The reports have been neither confirmed nor denied.
Talking to A1+, Mr. Avetisyan was surprised that we telephoned him during the break hour and then refrained from answering our question and simply said he was busy enough to talk to us. Ara Avetisyan suggested contacting him a bit later.
Veronika Khorasanyan, Head of PR Department at the SEUA, said she could not confirm the information as she had not seen any document. However, she said Mr. Avetisyan came to work in the morning.
Artur Baghdasaryan, Head of Public Relations Department at the Ministry of Education and Science, said the Minister had not issued any decree to dismiss Ara Avetisyan.
