Group holds march to presidential compound to know Serzh Sargsyan’s answer (video)

A group of citizens are currently marching in defense of retired army colonel Volodya Avetisyan. The group is heading to the presidential compound to demand release of the jailed colonel, ‘who was put in prison for his political views.’

A month ago, they addressed a letter to Serzh Sargsyan asking him to follow the investigation and release Avetisyan but they have not received any reply from the presidential palace.

Volodya Avetisyan, an active participant of protests held by Karabakh War veterans, was detained in September 2013, on suspicion of receiving $2000 from an official of the Ministry of Defense for assistance to release an Armenian citizen from military service.
