YEREVAN, JANUARY 28. ARMINFO. The recently arrested leader of the Armenian-Aryan Order party Armen Avetissyan has gone on hunger strike.
The reason is that Avetissyan has been placed in the same cell with criminals who used violence against him. Avetissyan’s lawyer Melania Arustamyan and an ombudsman representative are now in the cell to inquire into the situation.
Thursday MPs Viktor Dallakyan and Manuk Gasparyan asked Yerevan’s Prosecutor Hrach Badalyan to change the measure of restriction against Avetissyan.
To remind, Avetissyan was arrested for kindling ethnic, racial and religious strife.
