Former Deputy Commander of Armenian Police Troops Jailed: Charged with Killing March 1, 2008 Protester

Yerevan’s Court of General Jurisdiction today decided to place Gegham Petrosyan, who served as a  deputy commander of Armenian police troops during the March 2008 post-election protests, in pre-trial detention for two months.

Petrosyan was arrested on Tuesday and charged with killing an anti-government protester in Yerevan at the time. 

Armenia’s Special Investigative Service (SIS) says Petrosyan is suspected of deliberately shooting Zakar Hovannisyan, one of the eight protesters killed during the demonstrations following the contested February 2008 presidential election.
