Sona Haroutiounyan, an activist of the "SOS!  Save Afrikyans' Club Building!" public interest group has been detained, the Police press- service told ArmInfo. 
The activist is now at the Central Police Office. "Sona Haroutiunyan has been detained on suspicion of causing damage to others' property and for bearing cold arms," the Police said. 

The activist's supporters say she tried to prevent unlawful demolition of the Afrikyans' Club Building.

The Afrikyan building, located on 11 Teryan Street, was built at the end of the 19th century.  Based on a Government decision in 2004, the building was included in the state list of historical and cultural immovable monuments of the city of Yerevan as a national monument.

According to a new Government decision the Afrikyan building will be dismantled and rebuilt at another location. The building is included in the "Old Yerevan" program, which will be designed and implemented in the neighboring streets of Abovyan, Byuzand, Koghbatsi and Aram.
