The Head of “Helsinki Association” Mikael Danielyan in the interview with Epress.am mentioned several reasons why the organization did not apply to court against NA deputy and businessman Ruben Hayrapetyan, who attacked human right defender Arman Veziryan. The incident occured prior to the protest in front of the “Harsnakar” hotel complex which belongs to Ruben Hayrapetyan and in which on June 17th four medical officers had been severely beaten, one of which-major Vahe Avetyan- died 12 days later. After the incident Ruben Hayrapetyan called Arman Veziryan and expressed his apologies.


According to Danielyan's words, among the witnesses of the incident there were no civilians - only Deputy Chief of Police Robert Melkonyan and State Protection Service (SPS) regiment commander Valery Osipyan were present. Besides, there were no signs of violence on Veziryan's body and the forensic examination would give no results.
