The Association of Armenian ORT Specialists demand punishing Ruben Hayrapetyan's security guards.
"We condemn any act of vandalism and impunity, irrespective of the status of the actor, especially when it is aimed against a doctor. We urge all doctors and ordinary citizens to express their protest against the incident and call on all authorities to find and punish all those guilty," says the Association.
To remind, the security guards of oligarch Ruben Hayrapetyan severely beat military doctor, Major Vahe Avetyan in Harsnakar restaurant on Sunday. Avetyan was taken to hospital and underwent brain surgery. Doctors say he is in a very bad condition. On Tuesday the Prosecutor General instructed that the criminal case instituted by the Defense Ministry be transferred to the Yerevan Police Department. Some media say that Hayrapetyan and the chief of the department Nersik Nazaryan are on good terms and assume that the latter may help to cover up the crime.
