Armenian Woman Disappears in Turkey
YEREVAN (News.am)—An Armenian woman visiting Turkey from Armenia has disappeared under mysterious circumstances, giving rise to recent suspicious behavior against Armenian tourists.
Anna Davtyan, a 29-year-old citizen of Armenia, and her boyfriend decided to spend their holiday in Antalya. The Sabah newspaper reported that after spending two days in Antalya, Anna decided to travel to Dubai. However, on July 17 she disappeared from the hotel, where she was staying.
Anna’s mother, Karina Davtyan left for Antalya to find her daughter. She said her daughter is six months pregnant and must have been kidnapped.
Armenian tourists are lured to Turkey by promises of five-star accommodations, Mediterranean beaches and life-long memories. However, recently these tourists are targeted for violence and attacks once they arrive in Turkey.
Armenian citizens traveling to Turkey must realize that since there are no diplomatic relations with Turkey, the government of Armenia cannot intervene in cases involving Armenian citizens and the law.
