Armenia Becomes Dangerous for Journalists: Hovhannes Galajyan Attacked Again

Editor of opposition newspaper “Iskakan Iravunk” Hovanes Galajyan, was attacked on September 15, and hospitalized with brain concussion. This second attack against Hovhannes Galajyan is one of the many attacks against journalists in Armenia, and the fact it has repeated by possibly the same attackers against Hovhannes Galajyan reminds us again, that none of the ofgenders in this case, as well as in other attacks (e.g. burning of Ara Saghatelyan’s car) has been adequately punished so far.

I have an impression, based on reports, that this case is more of a result of inter-personal and that sort of animosities than “attack on journalists” per se. However, still condemn violence, for sure.

Armenia has become dangerous for its own population in the hands of unelected, unrepresentative, and inherently provincial Gharabakh ruling clan.
