One of the reasons for violence, physical or moral pressure exerted in the Armenian Police is the current system of evaluating the work effectiveness. Very often in order to ensure a high index of crime disclosure the detainees are forced to admit such crimes they have not committed.
Today at the Media Center such a statement was made by Artur Sakunts, Head of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office. Artur Sakunts spoke on the case of police brutality exerted against Aleksandr Tsverianov to extract confession at Erebuni police department. The press conference was attended also by Aleksandr Tsverianov.
