Press conference: Problems of domestic violence
May 12, 11:00

The case of 54 year old Siranush Aghabekyan, who was knifed by her husband, can be of a strategic value and set a legal precedence for other cases on victims of domestic violence. 

On January 1, 2014, Siranush’s husband-Levon Aghabekyan, has intentionally set their jointly owned apartment on fire. It should be noted that he was released from the court hall only 20 days before and faced charges for assaulting and knifing his wife- Siranush Aghabekyan.

On her son’s request Siranush had agreed to forgive her husband in the court, which was used as grounds for dismissing the case and suspending criminal charges.
