Hovsep Khurshudyan placed under arrest

Member of Heritage Party Hovsep Khurshudyan was detained after the clashes in Sari Tagh. His lawyer Seda Safaryan informed about it in the interview with “A1+”.

“I don’t know why he was taken to Ashtarak police department on suspicion of instigating mass disorders with a group of people accompanied by use of violence, beatings, damaging property and use of violence against the police officers. Such an unclear formulation was given, which doesn’t clearly state what kind of actions the person implemented. All are presented the same text,” she noted.

The lawyer also added that her defendant was taken according to the list, “They say who must have been taken in, they pointed out him and took in.”

Seda Safaryan says that the freedom to assemblies is determined by the international norms, and what happened this night can be called massacre, “How will the state pay for it?”

The lawyer reminds that Hovsep Khurshudyan is member of the Steering Committee the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum—EaP CSF, and there must have been sufficient bases in order to take him in.
