Police of Armenia: Many acts of protesters fall under the Criminal  Code

Police of Armenia: Many acts of protesters fall under the Criminal  Code

ArmInfo.. The Armenian police believes that the actions of the participants in the march along the central streets of Yerevan with a view to paralyzing the normal work  of state institutions go beyond the right to organize and hold peaceful assemblies.

As reported by the press service of the RA Police, on April 17 from  early morning Nikol Pashinyan called on demonstrators to block the  normal work of state institutions. In the afternoon, following the  appeal of Pashinyan, a few participants of the procession, tried to  paralyze the work of state structures. It is noted that Nikol  Pashinyan urged participants of the rally at the first opportunity to  enter state institutions and paralyze the work of these departments.   "The RA Police states that the above actions go beyond the right to  organize and hold peaceful assemblies, as well as par ticipation in  them, guaranteed by the Constitution and the law," the report said.  Moreover, as stated in the statement, many manifestations can be  considered as a criminal offense.

The law enforcement body states that in the current situation it will  be lawful to take actions to disperse the meeting and prevent ongoing  criminal activities.

"Rumors about revolutionary sentiments, tensions and instability, as  well as ongoing large-scale events in various regions and cities of  Armenia are absolute disinformation, and have no connection with  reality," the RA Police informs. In this regard, the department calls  on the meeting participants and media representatives to refrain from  such provocations.

The police assures that all lawful actions, proceeding and  commensurate with the situation, will be taken to ensure the normal  operation of state structures, and to protect the legitimate  interests of persons performing their duties.

Today the deputy of the parliament Nikol Pashinyan stated that the  launch of a nonviolent, velvet revolution is being announced in  Armenia. According to the oppositionist, the spirit of the revolution  is in the air. However, for the accomplishment of the revolution,  Pashinyan believes, it is necessary to carry out a "network fight" -  to block the normal work of state institutions, including by holding  sit-ins in state buildings. Participants in the protest action "Take  a step, refuse Serzh" further blocked the entrance to the building of  the State Revenue Committee, the moves to the building of the  Armenian Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of  Education and a number of other institutions.
