Armenian demonstrators are disappointed
The mothers and wives of the detainees of March 1 gathered today on one side of the Government building today, while the residents of the alienation zones on the other. RA Premier Tigran Sargsyan had promised to meet with them and discuss their issues. As to when that meeting would take place, the demonstrators don't know because every time the government says that the prime minister is out of the country, reported A1plus.
Among demonstrators were five refugee families living on Aghbyur Serob street whom the Yerevan city council refuses to grant certificates of ownership, despite the fact that the residents of the neighboring homes have already received them. "We are refugees and they refuse to help us in our homeland. Our neighbors were able to solve their issue through bribes. How can we?" told "A1+" one of the women who comes to the government building every Thursday.
Demonstrators were screaming "Shame on the mayor", "Thieves". According to them, they no longer hope for any meeting with the a government official because they have realized and are disappointed that no government official will try to help them. The wives of political prisoners were calling for "liberty" an ddemanding the release of their husbands. Among participants was Karine Asaturovna, who is the mother of March 1 detainee, former police officer and national movement follower Kristapor Elazyan. Karine told us how her three sons were arrested for no reason and how two of her children were sentenced to four years in jail.
"They sentenced him when it is cleary seen in the discs that my son was not beating a police officer, but rather saving his life. That same police officer gave a false testimony in court," said Karine.
Then the wives and relatives of the political prisoners made some turns in the small section that the police had given them and then left with the plan to return next Thursday.
