YEREVAN—Public school officials in the Avan region of Yerevan are mandating that graduating students hold their celebratory gatherings at the notorious and now infamous Harsnakar restaurant, the site of last year’s brutal beating and murder of Army medical officer Vahe Avetian, sources reported Wednesday.
Harsnakar is owned by oligarch Ruben Hayrapetian—known as “Nemets Rubo—is the site of a brutal beating last year of three Army officers who were patronizing the establishment but wound up severely beaten by its staff members. Avetian died of his injuries days after.
Since the incident, residents of the neighborhood and the city have refrained from renting out Harsnakar for their function.
Is the mandate by public school officials a way for the authorities to pass down the losses incurred by the notorious oligarch to the public? It seems so.
The cost per person to have an event at Harsnakar is 11,000 AMD.
