YEREVAN, APRIL 30, NOYAN TAPAN. According to RA Police Chief Alik
Sargsian's decision he publicized the other day, a month of search
for drugs and illegal arms and their confiscation will be held between
April 29 to May 29 in the country.

According to the Armenian National Congress, those undertaking such
a measure should not declare it publicly by warning such offenders
in advance.

And term's exact coincidence with the election campaign of Yerevan
Council of Elders elections prompts regime's goal: that is, to receive
a "legal" occasion for provocations and mass police checkings and
persecutions by making opposition representatives its target.

"ANC condemns this mean fraud of the regime and declares that such
frauds will not affect either its resolution or resolution of the
most part of people sympathizing with ANC. Not only in preelection
issues, but in general our main arms is legality, of which the regime
is terrified, and which will lead us to a final victory," the ANC
April 29 statement read.
