Levon Barseghyan, chairman of the board of the “Asparez” club of Gyumri journalists, late yesterday evening Facebook post informed that Arman Baghdasaryan, a member of the Gyumri Council of Elders, was caught by the Gyumri police on the street, laid on the ground, handcuffed and taken to the “Kumair” police department, then released.
Levon Barseghyan noted: “Arman is a member of the “Civil Contract” faction of the Council of Elders, he was distinguished by his active activities in the Council of Elders. He has no criminal biography, no criminal ties, he has no razbirat shoes either, he does not live in Kino “Yerevan” lane.
This incident claims to draw a lot of water (remember the story of that pond, sort of). The police have been reformed, before they used to arrest people just like that, now they look to see if there is anyone who is a co-owner of a TV station or the governor’s brother, they arrest them (Arman Baghdasaryan is the brother of Nazeli Baghdasaryan, Governor of Shirak.) Perhaps they will say, look, we will arrest the Prime Minister as well, if there is an order from Moscow. Before, they said, “Well, we keep a house, but now… they say, “Well, we keep a house, maybe the houses have changed, not them. No, in fact, they are the same houses, the militia has changed, the Ahels are leaving, the Jahels are coming to continue the traditions. Hey guys, on top of your police reforms.”
As for why the member of the Gyumri Council of Elders was detained, and in such a manner, the information service of the RA Police conveyed the following to us: “On November 24, at 1:25 p.m., he was arrested and brought to Kumayri police station on suspicion of carrying illegal weapons. Relevant documents have been drawn up.”
We will also hear Arman Baghdasaryan’s explanations on the topic.
