Armenian National Congress youth activists Areg Gevorgyan, Vahagn Gevorgyan, Sargis Gevorgyan, Sahak Muradyan, David Kiramijyan and Artak Karapetyan were asked to come to the special investigative service of the RA General Prosecutor’s Office, where they were informed that the investigation into David Kiramijyan, Sargis Gevorgyan, Artak Karapetyan and Tigran Araqelyan has been concluded, while investigation into the remaining three youth is still ongoing.
Areg Gevorgyan informed Epress.am that the investigation team has decided to pursue the case of the four youth in court.
Recall, the 7 youth were detained after an altercation with police on Aug. 9 near Yerevan’s Swan Lake. The next day they were arrested, while four — Areg and Vahagn Gevorgyan, David Kiramijyan and Sahak Muradyan — were released on Aug. 12. Artak Karapetyan and Sargis Gevorgyan were released later. The only one still in detention is Tigran Araqelyan. He and Artak Karapetyan are charged with violence against a representative of the authorities (RA Criminal Code Article 316), while Areg Gevorgyan, Sahak Muradyan, David Kiramijyan, Sargis Gevorgyan and Vahagn Gevorgyan are charged with hooliganism (RA Criminal Code Artice 258).
