Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Director of Artashat-based cannery Artfood Vachagan Karapetyan refutes reports on beating of employees by the company leadership.
"Mass Media reports do not correspond to reality. There was no quarrel. Employees just got into a bit of an argument. No one has been dismissed unlike mass media reports," Karapetyan told ArmInfo. Nevertheless, the local police office confirmed reports on the quarrel. The sufferer is to undergo forensic examination. The head of the production shop that beat up his employee was released on condition not to leave.
According to Mass Media reports, on August 12 the head of the tomato production shop at ArtFood Company Vardan Vardanyan beat up his employee Aram who just dared to ask why he should carry heavy barrels alone. Aram was dismissed. The cannery belongs to Hovik Abrahamuan, Armenian National Assembly Chairman and Sergo Karapetyan, Minister of Agriculture.
