United Nations in Armenia – 30/07
We are closely following the events in Yerevan unfolding since the seizure of a police compound in Erebuni on 17 July. The United Nations in Armenia is concerned by reports last night of numerous detentions and use of force resulting in injuries.
The use of force against journalists exercising their functions is never acceptable.
We join the Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia and other international organizations in calling for immediate investigations, restraint and tolerance on all sides.
