Barev-Yerevan Candidate: People Changed Raffi’s Plans for April 9

11:15, April 10, 2013

Alen Simonyan, a candidate on the Barev-Yerevan ticket for the upcoming municipal elections, was at Freedom Square yesterday and the events that later took place at Baghramyan Avenue.

He told Hetq that what transpired on Baghramyan Avenue once again proves that the regime is not ready to resolve internal political issues in a civilized manner.

“It pains me that the police felt it appropriate to beat Armen Martirosyan, who heads the Barev-Yerevan ticket,” said Simonyan. “This is a man who risked his life to save a policeman during the March 1, 2008 clashes. They beat him nevertheless. After watching the videotape, I can state that such force wasn’t necessary. A number of insults were heard emanating from the mouth of a policeman. I can’t say if they were appropriate or not.”
