On April 27, 2024, A.A. (the name has been changed) alerted the “New Generation” Humanitarian NGO (NGNGO). The latter stated that he was walking with his friends in the “Seasons” park in Yerevan city, and during that time several people approached them and uttered hateful and discriminatory expressions towards A.A. and his friends.  

A.A. is an activist/front-line defender of the NGO who publicly voices the issues of LGBT+ people. Unknown persons hit A.A. and his friends, causing physical injuries. 


AA called the police and was taken to the hospital. In the hospital, despite the discriminatory attitude towards the injured persons, they were provided with primary medical care and after some time discharged from the hospital.

The lawyer of the NGNGO provided appropriate legal advice, recorded and documented the incident, including the injuries received.  


On April 27, 2024, materials were prepared at the Central Police Department of the RA Ministry of Internal Affairs, based on which criminal proceedings were initiated.  


A.A. was recognized as the victim. 

Additional information will be provided about the progress of the case.
