Armenia is no place for mobsters, says Deputy Speaker on situation in prisons 14:34, 6 September, 2019
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 6, ARMENPRESS. The situation in Armenian prisons is under control and there are no problems associated with it, Deputy Speaker of Parliament Alen Simonyan from the ruling My Step bloc told reporters referring to the disobediences that took place in correctional facilities September 5. “I am aware that the situation is currently under control and there are no problems whatsoever. I can once again insist that the Republic of Armenia isn’t for criminal authorities,” Simonyan said referring to the so-called organized crime hierarchy subculture in prisons which is being tackled by the government.  Inmates in several prisons of Armenia displayed disobedience in the evening of September 5, but the actions were stopped by the Department of Corrections. Minister of Justice Rustam Badasyan had earlier confirmed that the situation is under control. Badasyan said he will take actions based on the situation in case of possible developments.
