The oppositional Armenian National Congress spread a statement today
strongly criticizing the actions of the country’s authorities.
According to the statement received by ArmInfo, 6 oppositional
representatives embarked on hunger-strike the day before on the
Northern Avenue demanding to set free the persons arrested on the case
of March 1 events. In the evening, at about 10:00 PM, the policemen
broke up by force the gathered participants in the protest action
in the Northern Avenue, and those on hunger-strike were delivered to
the Police department. Foreign Relations Coordinator of ANC Vladimir
Karapetyan was also brought to the Police.
‘The authorities passed all the bounds not only of legality and
moral but also that of logic forcing the policemen to execute illegal
actions. Any protest action, any poster, any display of human rights
cause the authorities’ schizophrenia.
Their inconsistency with the civil society is proved every day. All
this testifies about the panic inside the pro-power camp which realizes
its own illegitimacy and which deserved its own people’s hatred’,
the statement of ANC says.
