16 protesters detained by Yerevan police

YEREVAN, MARCH 14, ARMENPRESS. 16 protesters have been detained by police in Yerevan amid ongoing demonstrations organized by café owners and employees against the City Hall’s planned dismantlement of several cafés near the Opera House.

“16 people have been detained at the moment,” Yerevan Police Department told ARMENPRESS.

Owners of the cafes had been notified about the upcoming dismantlement by City Hall earlier in 2018 December. The City Hall wants to restore the green areas near the iconic Opera House.
