• Citizens gather outside Police in defense of Shahen Harutyunyan (video)

    A group of citizens have gathered outside the headquarters of the General Investigation Department of the RA Police in defense of Shahen Harutyunyan, the son of opposition activist Shant harutyunyan.

    The 15-year-old boy has been invited for questioning today. Leader of the opposition Heritage Party, raffi Hovannisian, was also on the site.

    The group demands that law-enforcement bodies stop the prosecution of Shahen Harutyunyan. They will hold a march to the Prosecutor General’s Office a bit later.

    The charges against Shahen Harutyunyan were filed within the framework of a criminal case against his father Shant Harutyunyan, who was arrested in November 2013 during clashes with security forces in Yerevan.

    Details will be given later in the day.
