ArmInfo.In Yerevan, an action-procession is taking place in memory of Arthur Sargsyan, the "food deliverer".

As the correspondent of ArmInfo informs from the place of events, the  procession started from Freedom Square. Several hundred demonstrators  move to the Republic Square, chanting: "Death to the regime!", "Serzh  killed Artur!", "Unite!", "Free, independent Armenia", "We decide!",  "Prosecutor, go away".  Protesters intend to pass through the central  streets of Yerevan and return to Freedom Square.

To recall, Artur Sargsyan was accused of assisting the actions of the  rebel group Sasna Tsrer, which captured the regiment of the patrol  service of Yerevan in July 2016. On his private car he broke through  screens and delivered bread and water to the rebels. The authorities  decided to use the factor of hunger and thirst to force the group to  surrender. Sargsyan was arrested, and then under pressure from a  group of Parliamentarians, he was released under a subscription, as  he suffered a number of serious diseases incompatible with his  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.

To note, the actions in memory of Artur Sargsyan are held not only in  Yerevan and in the cities of the Republic, but all over the world  since the day of his death on March 17. Participants in the action in  memory of Artur Sargsyan, demanding to bury Sargsyan in the pantheon  of "Yerablur" and bring to justice those who are "guilty".
