On 24.04.2023, the Poligraf team made a statement regarding the police raid in the club, noting that, “Last night, at around 1 am, the RA Police raided Poligraf without presenting any legal grounds. Everyone in the club was laid on the floor and forcibly taken to the police station. Our staff and visitors were cruelly beaten and strip searched in the police station. We demand justice for all the victims”.
Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly-Vanadzor human rights NGO strongly condemns the workstyle of the RA Police towards Poligraf staff and visitors, and calls on the competent bodies to take measures exclusively in accordance with the procedure and grounds established by law, strongly observing respect for and human attitude towards human rights, freedoms and dignity.
At the same time, we hereby state our willingness to provide legal support to Poligraf team members and visitors affected by the unlawful actions of the RA policemen, and highlight once again that physical and mental integrity and dignity are inalienable values and should be protected in the Republic of Armenia, which adopted democratic and legal values.
