ArmInfo. A protest commemorating Artur Sargsyan began in the square of "Liberty".  Several hundred people gathered in the square.

Sargsyan died the day before after a 25-day hunger strike. The law  enforcement bodies began an investigation on the death of Sargsyan.  At the request of Sargsyan's relatives, a medical forensic  examination will be conducted with the participation of international  experts.

In connection with the death of Sargsyan, many political forces of  the country made statements, including the ruling Republican Party,  expressing sympathy to his relatives and friends. Some political  forces stopped pre-election campaign as a sign of mourning, radical  oppositionists accused the authorities of the incident.

To note, Artur Sargsyan was accused of assisting the activities of  the Sasna Tsrer group, which captured the regiment of the patrol  service in Yerevan in July 2016. On his private car he broke through  screens and delivered bread and water to the rebels. Sargsyan was  arrested, and then under pressure from a group of Armenian  Parliamentarians, he was released under a subscription, as he  suffered a number of serious diseases incompatible with his being  under arrest. However, on 9 February he was arrested again because of  "violation of the conditions of execution of the preventive measure".  After that, Sargsyan went on a hunger strike, and refused to take  appropriate medical care, his health deteriorated every day. On March  16, in extremely difficult condition, he was taken to the clinic,  where he died.
