YEREVAN. – After her press conference Friday with respect to several families being deprived of sewer line in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan, Sona Aghekyan, a former member of the Yerevan Council of Elders, decided to go—together with opposition Prosperous Armenia parliamentary faction members Vahe Enfiajyan and Naira Zohrabyan as well as the aforesaid families—and meet with Mayor Hayk Marutyan of Yerevan, in connection with this matter.
But Ararat Khachikyan, Head of the Department of Utilities at the Municipality of Yerevan, met with them outside the city hall building.
During their talk, Aghekyan suggested to Khachikyan to “breathe in”—from the container she had brought along—the stench caused by the lack of sewer line,” whereupon the municipality official poured out the content of this container, and the police detained Sona Aghekyan.
Subsequently, the demonstrators marched to the police station.
