A while ago, Deputy Director of the Republican Center for AIDS Prevention Aram Hakobyan was apprehended and taken to the police station today, as reported urologist Gevorg Grigoryan.
The deputy director refused to transfer the seal of the Center to the newly appointed director, and according to Grigoryan, this was the reason for his apprehension.
“At this moment, the employees of the Center have gathered near the court to express their support to the deputy director,” he said.
Today, on its Facebook page, the Republican Center for AIDS Prevention of the Ministry of Justice of Armenia stated that Director of the Republican Center for AIDS Prevention Samvel Grigoryan was dismissed on February 25 under the order of Minister of Healthcare Arsen Torosyan, and Artur Berberyan was appointed acting director of the Center by another order.
Upon the decision of Torosyan, the Republican Center for AIDS Prevention and Nork Infection Clinical Hospital must be amalgamated. The staff of the Center doesn’t agree with the minister’s decisions and has expressed its discontent.
