The citizens, who suffered the illegal activities of the police during July 17-30, 2016 and are called to the RA Special Investigation Service or Investigative Committee as witnesses, are being subjected to prosecution by unanimous persons and employers. The prosecutions are mainly exposes in the following way;
- The family members of the persons who suffered the illegal activities of police during July 17-30 are fired,
- unanimous persons visit the yards of the victims, talk to their neighbors and with their intervention urge them to “stay from this cases”,
- the policemen without any justification and legal ground visit the yards of the victims, talk to their neighbors spreading false and invented information about the victims being accused in crime and being held for liability.
In this regard, we urge the RA Special Investigation Service, RA Investigative Committee and law enforcement bodies to display more vigilance and consistency in regard to the protection of the rights of the persons who suffered the ill treatment of police during July 17-30, 2016 and exclude any kind of pressures or intimidation towards them.
For security reasons, the name of the citizens who provided information will not be published.
