Supporters of the leader of the opposition Prosperous Armenia Party Gagik Tsarukyan are likely to gather in Yerevan on Sunday, June 21, amid pending criminal proceedings against him. A court decision on a parliamentary petition to arrest Tsarukyan will be announced at 15:00 (local time) on 21 June at the Kentron and Nork-Marash General Jurisdiction Court.
A heightened security presence at the court is likely on Sunday, along with possible overland travel disruptions.
Supporters of Tsarukyan believe the illegal gambling, bribery and corruption charges against him are politically motivated and have been incited by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
Individuals in Yerevan are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid protests and demonstrations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
