The Coalition to Stop Violence Against Women, which came to existence following the tragic death of Zaruhi Petrosyan, will hold a picket action on January 31, 2011 in Yerevan, in front of the Prosecutor General’s office of RA. This action is carried out to demand for a just and fair trial for Zaruhi Petrosyan who was beaten to death by her husband on October 1st, 2010.
The Coalition to Stop Violence Against Women stand in solidarity with all victims of domestic violence in Armenia and urges the authorities to take immediate actions to ensure that cases such as Zaruhi Petrosyan’s don’t ever occur again, and if they do, they don’t remain unpunished.
