YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: Obviously, the affairs of the authorities are not good.
The imperative of keeping the political team adds up to this.
The authorities must do what they want. And when they face resistance, they must break that resistance. And if they see a bad PR for themselves, they should think of a more effective PR move.
The most tested and traditional of these steps is the arrest of a new person. The list of candidates for scandalous arrest is not large. In my opinion, the three people, whose arrest may stifle public discontent, are [ex-President] Serzh Sargsyan, [Prosperous Armenia Party leader and tycoon MP] Gagik Tsarukyan, and Mikael Minasyan [Armenia’s former Ambassador to the Holy See]. At the time they [the authorities] have planned to arrest them, but delayed for one reason or another. Now it seems as though the moment has come.
