252 people arrested during protests in support of Armenia’s opposition leader

A total of 252 people were arrested during Sunday’s protests in support of Opposition Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) leader, MP, and business tycoon Gagik Tsarukyan in Yerevan, NEWS.am reports.

According to the police, rallies have been banned in the country on the basis of the government's decision to declare a state of emergency in Armenia. However, on Sunday, a group of people held a rally in Yerevan, near the building of the National Security Service.

These persons did not obey the lawful demands of the police to keep a social distance and to stop the rally in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, and therefore 252 people were arrested as of 10pm.
