Yesterday evening unknown people tried to set fire to the office of Armenian Liberal-Progressive Party (LPP), located on Abovyan 22.

At about 9 p.m. the residents of the building took notice of the fire and rapidly extinguished it with joint measures. Shortly afterwards, the members of the party and the police arrived at the site.

Hovhannes Hovhannisyan, leader of the party, informed us that unknown people poured petrol on the door of the office and burnt it.

But for the hasty reaction of the residents, the whole office and even the building would have countered serious problems.

Mr. Hovhannisyan doesn't want to give political estimation to the event. He only notes that he hasn't got enemies and the hooliganism is likely connected with the political activity of their party.

`LPP is a political party; we are engaged in politics and have no other business to do here. I have been in the political sphere over the past eight years. I don't want to give any political estimation as I am not sure of anything», said Hovhannes Hovhannisyan.

A criminal action has been brought in this respect.
