This morning, after leaving his apartment, several police officers attacked Narek Samsonyan, founder of the AntiFake.am website, founder of the “Civic Consciousness” NGO, co-author and host of the “Imnemnimi” podcast, from behind in the parking lot and using disproportionate brute force knocked him to the ground.

Still not talking about the initiated criminal proceedings and its details, the Union of Journalists of Armenia considers inhumane violence against any person due to the content of the subject matter as unacceptable.

Narek Samsonyan could have been arrested in such a way only if the latter showed strong resistance, was armed or threatened the life of the policemen, which, judging by the posted video, did not happen.

Narek Samsonyan’s arrest is clearly outside the scope of criminal procedure legislation

The Union of Journalists of Armenia strongly condemns the brutal actions of the police officers, the brazen tendency to grossly violate Narek Samsonyan’s dignity as a person and the founder of the media.

Satik Seyranyan,

President of the Union of Journalists of Armenia
