Yerevan March in Support of Levon Hayrapetyan

Marchers took to the street in Yerevan today in support of Levon Hayrapetyan, an Armenian businessman arrested in Moscow on July 15 and later charged with taking a US$50 million fee in the 2009 Bashneft oil company sale. The Artsakh native has since been held in pre-trial detention. Marchers demanded that Armenian President Sargsyan petition Russian authorities to free him from detention while awaiting trial.
