Published in News Digest

By empty (5/20/2002 issue of the CACI Analyst)

Representatives of the 13 opposition parties that organized a series of mass demonstrations over the past six weeks to demand President Kocharian\'s resignation claimed on 17 May that police have resorted to an \"unprecedented\" crackdown, arresting dozens of activists and imposing fines on others for their participation in \"unsanctioned\" street protests. Artak Zeynalian of the opposition Hanrapetutiun party said police forced their way into apartments to carry out such arrests, while Democratic Party of Armenia Chairman Aram Sarkisian said that the court proceedings that culminated in some activists being fined were carried out in violation of correct legal procedure.
