    Dismantling of cafes built in the area near the Opera House in downtown Yerevan resumed on Thursday. Yerevan Municipality issued a statement with respect to its plan to restore the green space around Liberty Square and sent notifications to cafés leasing these areas with a proposal to give up part of the territories they lease.
    This proposal, however, has infuriated the proprietors of these cafés. They said that many people will lose jobs because of municipality’s decision.
    The situation near Opera House became tense after protesters blocked several adjacent streets on Thursday morning. Repeated clashes between police and demonstrators continued. Sixteen people were detained and released later in the day. One police officer and one demonstrator were hospitalized.

    STATE DEPARTMENT ISSUES HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT
    The new Armenian government launched a series of investigations to prosecute systemic government corruption, says the Report on Human Rights Practices for 2018 issued by State Department.
    The reports points to human rights problems in Armenia, but at the same time notes that the new government took steps to investigate and punish abuse.
    The report says following the post “velvet revolution” release of certain individuals considered by some local human rights NGOs to be political detainees, there were no reports of political prisoners or detainees in the country.
    The same report on Azerbaijan mentions that persons with Armenian names were often subjected to additional inspection at border crossing points. Such persons are often denied entry into the country.
    The report on Turkey also notes that Armenians remain the subject of hate speech and discrimination in Turkey, and the term “Armenian” remained a common slur.
