Protesters Block Prosecutor General's Office; Demand Release of Political Prisoners

A dozen or so protesters have gathered outside the Prosecutor General’s Office in Yerevan, blocking all the doorways, and are demanding the release of all political prisoners and releasing the Sasna Dzrer defendants from detention as their court cases proceed.

Paykar Lazaryan, one of the protesters, told Hetq that they are also demanding the resignation of Prosecutor General Artur Davtyan.

The protesters say they will continue to block the entryways for as long as it takes for officials to respond.
