Urgent! 5 were beaten

Today, December 27, 2009, at around 5:30 pm, in the courtyard near the buildings at Toumanyan and Nalbandyan streets (“Boxi Hayat”), HAK youth activists for Nikol Pashinyan’s election campaign were approached by a small gang of undesirables, who demanded that the youths stop their election campaigning. When the gang’s illegitimate demand was denied, they attacked the youths, beating them with their fists and with metal pipes.

Vahagn Gevorgyan, Sahak Muradyan, Sargis Gevorgyan, Tevos Matevosyan and Sergey Gasparyan were transported to a hospital with varying degrees of bodily injuries (mostly with lacerations and contusions, the result of blows by metal objects). Vladimir Karapetyan, representative of the central office of the HAK, also suffered injuries at the scene.
