In the good old tradition of suppressing free speech in Armenia, reporter Lusine Barseghian was assaulted in Yerevan yesterday. Two unidentified males attacked her as she exited her residence, threw her on the ground and repeatedly kicked her on the head. She was hospitalized and is suffering from contusion and hematoma. Her condition is listed as not life threatening.
She had recently published investigative reports about the property and businesses of people closely connected with the banditocracy such as MP Lfik Samo, SS's chief of staff Mkhchiani Mook and the neighborhood chief of Erebuni district Tokhmakhi Mher. Tokhmakhi Mher has since claimed that it was not his people who did this.
