YEREVAN. – An argument occurred Tuesday in Yerevan between Narek Samsonyan, President of the "Civil Consciousness" NGO of Armenia, and a policeman, and the police officers had blocked Samsonyan’s way.
Then, the special police forces took him to a police precinct.
"Not only did I not insult the policeman, but I also consider that the man was not a policeman because a policeman cannot behave in such a rude way and cannot carry out a political order," Samsonyan told reporters this, leaving the aforementioned police precinct.
He noted that the said police officer had apparent political views. "I was brought to the precinct for insult the policeman; but I did not insult a policeman and I am not going to either. (…). If a person is not a policeman, hasn’t behaved like a policeman, but behaved like the last mob, and the footage shows that the policeman behaves like a thug, (…) then it is obvious that he can’t be treated in the same way as other police officers", Samsonyan added.
