As “Noyan Tapan” news agency reported, on Sunday, October 21, the apartment of the political observer of the Agency David Petrosian, as of the moment absent from home, was visited by two men. One of them was dressed into the uniform of an officer of the Armenian Military Forces, the other – into that of Interior Affairs officer. Without producing any documents verifying their authority, the unknown visitors explained their appearance to the journalist’s family by the fact that the senior reserve lieutenant David Petrosian fails to be present at the Military Commissariat of the Center Community of Yerevan to pass the six-month military training, held to higher the ranks of the reserve officers. However, no official certificate about the allegedly repeated summons of David Petrosian to the Military Commissariat was shown either.
The next day, October 22, the 48-year-old journalist, who had long ago completed his military service, went to the Commissariat to clear up the situation. As it turned out, no one had summoned David Petrosian for training, and therefore, no representatives of this structure visited his apartment.
Apparently, this is a case of fraud. Yerevan Press Club shares this opinion of “Noyan Tapan”, along with the hope that this “strange” incident will interest the law-and-order bodies of Armenia.
