OVER 100 CITIZENS OF ARMENIA TAKEN INTO CUSTODY SINCE THE SECOND CONGRESS OF THE POPULAR MOVEMENT: PRECONDITION FOR DIALOGUE???
(Summarized from Radio Liberty, Sunday, May 11, 2008)
In a telephone conversation with Radio Liberty today, First President Levon Ter Petrosyan’s spokesman, Armen Khatchatryan reported that in Yerevan and elsewhere in the Republic, many citizens who had participated in the opposition rallies—actively or only once or twice—were being called to the police station early in the morning, illegally and under threat.
Police were using their illegal and unjustified interrogation to elicit any information that might be construed as evidence against others or to intimidate them enough to keep them from participating in further actions.
Khatchatryan also stated that the police are calling people in for questioning—although they call it a “chat”—those citizens who were wounded on May 1, and who in principle should have been treated as victims. Rather, they are treated as suspects.
The police have arrested and taken into custody more than 100 citizens since the 2nd meeting of the Congress of the Popular Movement just over one week ago. There were also three new arrests and 10 citizens taken into custody.
And the list of citizens in custody and under arrest continues to grow.
