BAGHRAMYAN AVENUE IS NOT THE PLACE TO DANCE
“I think Office of Prosecutor has the power to appraise the Police actions.
And the appraisal was voiced yesterday”, Armenian Defense Minister Serj
Sargssyan said referring to the events on April 13 night during the joint
press conference with USA Ambassador in Armenia John Ordway in Talin in
connection with opening of the hospital reconstructed by finance of USA
“Policemen had to protect the social order and they did it. I don’t think it
is right to disturb the vital functions of a big city through 2000 or 4000
people. I don’t consider Baghramyan Avenue to be the place to dance. People
didn’t have to attack policemen with stones or bottles”, Minister commented.
