On February 21, 2018 the RA Administrative Appellate Court was supposed to pronounce the ruling on protester Armen Mikayelyan’s case.
A. Mikayelyan and his representative Tatevik Siradeghyan, lawyer at HCA Vanadzor’s representative office in Yerevan, lodged an appeal against the ruling of the RA Administrative Court delivered on February 17, 2017. Under this ruling, the Administrative Court upheld the claim of the RA Police against the protester and ruled to subject him to administrative responsibility in the amount of 100,000 AMD.
On March 24, 2016 A. Mikayelyan participated in the assembly held before the examination of the motion to extend Gevorg Safaryan’s detention period. At the assembly, some participants lay down on the carriageway of Mashtot’s Avenue, chained themselves to the asphalt and blocked the street. The police officers apprehended them by using physical force and took them to the Central Division of the Yerevan City Department of the RA Police, where administrative proceedings were initiated against them for failing to fulfill their responsibilities as participants in an assembly and failing to meet the demands of the police in regard to maintaining the normal course of the assembly as established by the law.
On February 21, 2017 the Court declared that the examination of the appeal was to recommence. Further details will be provided additionally on the time and date of the next court hearing.
