Armenian protesters blockade court buildings after PM’s call

Protesters blockade entrances to court buildings in the Armenian capital after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called for a demonstration against judges he accuses of political bias. Pashinyan on Sunday called on Armenians to “blockade court buildings across the republic” after a Yerevan court released former president Robert Kocharyan from pre-trial detention. The symbolic protest comes as Pashinyan tries to consolidate power in the ex-Soviet country a year after leading a popular revolt against former president Serzh Sarkisian and corrupt elites. IMAGES
