Commander of the Police Troops of Armenia, deputy Police Chief Levon Yeranosyan (pictured) spoke to the Zhoghovurd daily yesterday and neither denied nor confirmed that Arabo squad commander Manvel Yeghiazaryan and Aparan squad commander Razmik Petrosyan were attacked on his order for cursing RA President Serzh Sargsyan.
“I have nothing to hold back; while I’m on the job, if anyone in this country tries to say anything against the Republic’s President I’ll cut their dog ears off,” said Yeranosyan.
The article “They were beat for cursing Serzh Sargsyan” also stresses that Yeranosyan is a close person to Serzh Sargsyan. The deputy Police Chief invited the two veterans to a restaurant on Monday and demanded that they stop getting mixed up in politics and going against the president.
“Razmik Petrosyan and Manvel Yeghiazaryan openly stated what they thought about Serzh Sargsyan. Yeranosyan demanded that they don’t curse his president, however the veterans continued to express their view about “his president,” writes the paper.
When the veterans left the restaurant, 7-8 young men, who were in a nearby room until then, approached them. They began to argue with the veterans which resulted in a fight. After hearing the noise, Yeranosyan’s driver came out of the restaurant and tried to stop the young men who quickly obeyed his orders.
