Yerevan Protesters Demand Release of Woman Arrested in Pashinyan's Son Kidnapping

Relatives of Armenian soldiers who died in the 2020 Karabakh war today gathered outside a Yerevan court today where a case is being heard regarding the arrest of a woman who allegedly attempted to kidnap Ashot Pashinyan, the son of Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan on May 17.

Gayaneh Hakobyan, the mother of Zhora Martirosyan, a solider who died in the war, allegedly drove off with Ashot Pashinyan after he got in her car to discuss the consequences of the war.

The protesters say they want the court to release Hakobyan.

Haykakan Zhamanak, a newspaper owned by the family of Armenian PM Nikol Pahsinyan, wrote on May 17 that members of the Call of the Sons NGO attempted to kidnap Ashot but that he managed to jump out of the vehicle. He was then struck by another car.

Relatives claim that Ashot Pashinyan got into the car of his own free will.
