Hakob Karapetyan is a journalist working in Yerevan.

On April 23, Karapetyan was beaten, his camera ripped from his hands and the film destroyed during a campaign rally organized by current Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan. Margaryan, a member of the ruling Republican Party, is seeking re-election to the post.

The police are still conducting an investigation of the incident and it is not clear whether criminal charges will be brought against the perpetrators.

Karapetyan, a reporter for the www.ilur.am news site, says that he showed up a half hour early to a Republican Party campaign rally in the Nor Nork #7 District.
