Protests renew in Yerevan: Police issue warning

Protests renewed in Yerevan today after the Police used water cannons to disperse the sit-in on Baghramyan Avenue early in the morning.

The Police issued a statement, urging the protesters to refrain from any violation of law, and warned it will resort to actions reserved by law in case of any violation of public order.

The Police also reminded the organizers of the rally that they carry personal responsibility for the protection of rights and security of the participants.

“Let’s remember that we are the citizens of the same country and are responsible not only for the security and future of each other, but also the country, as a whole,” the statement reads.

The protests were sparked by the decision of the Public Services Regulatory Commission to increase power tarriffs from August 1, 2015.
