Tigran Yeziazaryan’s life, who is in pre-arrest at “Nubarashen” penitentiary institution, is in danger: his defender Liparit Simonyan is alarming.
According to his defense lawyer, Tigran Yeziazaryan was beaten not only by the detainees, but also by the PI staff. “He expressed his concern that he might again face a revenge because he had expressed his wish to give detailed testimonies regarding the incidents,” said the defense lawyer.
The consequences of the beating were recorded by some employees of the Human Rights Defender’s Office.
Liparit Simonyan appealed to the Minister of Justice and the Head of the Penitentiary Department to request that Tigran Yeghiazaryan should be moved to another penitentiary, where his life and health would not be endangered. As such, Liparit Simonyan proposes “Yerevan-Kentron” penitentiary.
“God forbid, if something may happen to Tigran Yeghiazaryan in the penitentiary, first both the Ministry of Justice and the Penitentiary Department shall be responsible for that,” concluded Liparit Simonyan.
