Security at Raffi Hovhannisyan's house strengthenedPolitical
RA Police noted that, both in the preparatory period for the presidential election, and on election day, 02/18/2013, police forces took all possible measures to ensure public order, prevention of crime and other antisocial behavior, as well as providing the natural course of elections. Current and organizational arrangements for the smooth implementation of civil rights, presidential candidates, their trustees and observers were made.
Thus, we inform you that during the presidential election, the Police received several reports of violence against the trustees of the presidential candidates and journalists. RA Police on these and all the other messages reacted immediately, and they are checked in due protsedure.
On February 19, 2013 RA Police received a report of an oral treatment of the presidential candidate and head of "Heritage" party Raffi Hovhannisyan to the Chief of police for the security of his residence.
By order of the Armenian police Chief, the relevant units are ordered to organise round-the-clock security of the candidate's house from Feb.19.
