YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 16, NOYAN TAPAN. The proper bodies have been assigned
to very seriously examine the circumstances of the incident of beating
Narek Galstian, the Chairman of the Sargis Tkhruni student-youth
union. RA President Robert Kocharian stated this on November 16.

According to him, "whatever happens on the threshold of the elections,
they will connect it with politics." Meanwhile, the RA President does
not consider that N. Galstian "was of some interest for any one." It
was mentioned that cases of politicizing such incidents committed
on the domestic ground had happened formerly. "The authorities need
neither such a scandal nor manifestations proceeding from that
scandal," R. Kocharian said not excluding that letters connected
with the incident of N. Galstian’s beating will be sent to "various
international organizatons."

It should be mentioned that N. Galstian was beaten by unknown persons
in the morning of November 15 and was taken to the Grigor Lusavorich
hospital. It is noteworthy that he had said at the September 6 press
conference that universities’ "student councils, the leaders of which
are mainly members of the Republican Party of Armenia, have become
structures serving the authorities and have become like the Young
Communists’ League."
