Health condition of an activist of "We pay 100 drams" movement remains unchanged
 Tuesday, August 6 2013 13:16

Health condition of an activist of "We pay 100 drams" movement, Suren Sahakyan, remains unchanged, and he is at home at present, Sahakyan's friend, Karen Harutyunyan, told Arminfo correspondent.

He said that Suren Sahakyan's health condition sharply worsened at night and he was transferred to the medical centre Grigor Lusavorich. Without the relevant examination, doctors diagnosed Sahakyan with bronchitis. "He had to be transferred to the paid department of the hospital, but Sahakyan decided to come back to the Mayor's Office, where his  health condition worsened and they decided to call an ambulance again", he said and added that doctors did not pay the needed attention to Sahakyan and were trying to do everything possible for the picket to stop. "As a result, Suren decided to go home. At present his health condition remains unchanged. He is weak, and his body temperature is high", - Harutyunyan said. 

He also added that Armenia's ombudsman reacted at yesterday's statement by the activists and said he is tracing the situation. "However, this is not enough. We are going to again try to set a tent", - the activist said. 

To note, earlier activists were trying to set a tent in front of the Mayor's Office, but policemen became an obstacle. Then activists appealed to Armenia's Ombudsman Karen Andreasyan with a request to ensure conditions for holding of the picket.

Taron Margaryan is not going to implement demands of activists picketing Yerevan Municipality building
 Tuesday, August 6 2013 13:15

It is unreasonable to dismiss the state officials at the request of several people, Mayor of Yerevan Taron Margaryan told Radio Azatutyun when commenting on the demands of the Let's Pay 100 AMD movement activists that have been picketing the Yerevan Municipality building for 11 days.  
 
"If an official works badly, he should be dismissed without waiting for the relevant request, but if he works well, he should not be dismissed only because one or two people demand that, especially as the wide public strata do not support this demand", said Margaryan. 

As regards the public transport fare rise, the mayor stressed that the fare will be raised following the relevant conclusion of the newly created commission, which is considering this issue. "If we want to have a normal transport system, if we want to have a transport system in general, we should raise the fare", he said.  

To note, the decision on the 50% rise in the public transport fare caused a wave of protest in Armenia, and Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan suspended his decision. However, the activists have not stopped their protests and now they demand resignation of some officials of the Municipality and cancellation of the mayor's decision.
