It’s not unusual for photojournalist Gagik Shamshyan to be at the centre of some kind of scandalous story. So far, we used to this story involve pro-government side and Gagik Shamshyan. Now prominent opposition representative Ararat Zurabyan is accused of attacking Shamshyan and threatening to break his camera.
It’s actions like this which make many people refrain from supporting the opposition. People may argue that, after all, what is the difference between those two sides? What is alarming in this story is the lack of coverage of the incident in pro-opposition media. Only 7or.am posted the news and updates.
Whatever the reasons for such outburst/attack, however ‘provoked’ Zurabyan might be, opposition Armenian National Congress should issue a statement condemning such a behaviour by one of its comrades.
