Charged Lawmakers go Into Hiding

YEREVAN (Armenpress)-Forty Six people have been formally charged with violating the constitutional order during last weekend’s clashes between security forces and protestors, Sona Truzian, a spokeswoman for the Office of the Prosecutor-General told reporters Thursday.
She said another 20 were arrested as suspects. She also said law-enforcement bodies were looking for two parliament members, Sasoon Mikaelian and Khachatur Sukiasian, who joined two other lawmakers and went into hiding after they were striped of their immunity from prosecution. Mikaelian and Sukiasian are suspected of instigating public unrest last weekend, she said.
