US Embassy Gran’s l Detectors to Armenian Authorities

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The US Embassy in Armenia granted metal detectors to the Armenian parliament and other government bodies to enhance their security. The grant was prompted by the recent tragic events at the Armenian parliament.

US Ambassador Michael Lemmon said that the metal detectors had been brought to Yerevan several months before the events–but the parliament leadership kept refusing to install them as they thought the measure would hamper people’s access to deputies.

Only the Presidential Palace–the Constitutional Court building–airports in Yerevan and Giumri and the US Embassy have had installed metal detectors so far.
