Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
Ombudsman of Armenia Karen Andreasyan has disseminated a statement, Friday, wherein he slams the Police and Municipality for their unwillingness to stop perversions in the city Children's Park "Komaygi."
Ombudsman Andreasyan alarms of prostitution and sexual perversions in the park. "Prostitution and sexual intercourse in public areas are administrative offences," he said. The Ombudsman claims that all the applications to the Municipality for relevant measures proved useless, as the Municipality lays the blame on the Police. "Meanwhile, the Municipality has officially declared that it has received no alarms on prostitution and sexual intercourse in public areas, in particular, in the given Park," Andreasyan said. He is sure that the Police ought to initiate a criminal case on the basis of numerous media reports on frequent sexual perversions in the Children's Park.
"Police regularly detain prostitutes through the city, but never in the Children's Park," the human rights defender says.
He offers hedging the Park and increasing the night-time lighting as well as police guards.
"Our demands are based on the European experience and values. The European Convention for Human Rights equally protects the human rights and freedoms and public morals," he said. It is noteworthy that part of the fesitivites timed to the 2795th Anniversary of Yerevan will be held in the Children's Park 11-12 October. The Municipality has organized large-scale festivities. These days the Municipality is closed for reporters and citizens as it is "seriously" engaged in the organization issues. Incidentally, on sidelines of the events timed to the 2795th Anniversary of Yerevan, an international conference of mayors has kicked off in Yerevan to study comfortable life of the Yerevan citizens.
