The review should include instructions about the size of the law enforcement presence at the event, its terms of engagement, and any restrictions or conditions placed on the event’s participants, including regarding decorations and costumes. In reviewing police conduct at the event, the authorities should examine the instructions given to the police, Human Rights Watch said. In a January 5 letter to Armenia’s prosecutor general, Human Rights Watch expressed concern about the charges against and pretrial detention of Safaryan and called for his release pending an investigation. Women’s dresses are called habesha kemis, and are often made from the shemma cloth. These alternatives may include fall festival parties where children are encouraged to dress in a particular theme such as positive cartoon or book characters, famous historical characters, or Bible heroes.
Carrying out that theme with simple acting can be fun and an opportunity for teaching values. Other variations of after-school parties include costumed dances, which can feature healthy homemade treats and hot cider; Halloween festivals that offer haunted houses and games (think Halloween Bingo and witch-hat ring toss) and Halloween-themed talent shows. It helps that we offer our musician costumes at impossibly low prices, making it easier than every to buy one. Universal’s “Halloween” presentation for the upcoming sequel got unexpectedly emotional when one fan stepped up to the microphone during the panel Q&A to tell star Jamie Lee Curtis how her Laurie Strode helped him escape an attacker in real life.
One of our favorite Halloween 2020 costume trends includes celebrities recreating looks from other celebrities, such as Ciara dressing up as rappers Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj. Lucky for us, celebrities love a good costume party. Other celebrities jumping in on the fun this week included Megan Thee Stallion, Nelly, and Skai Jackson. Some see it as a dark day full of evil influence while others deem it a harmless time for fun costumes and candy. Certainly, providing a safe, fun environment must be a priority. The fabulous and nautical party continues with Ann Curry as music mogul Cher and Meredith Vieira as Bette Midler’s mermaid character Delores DeLago in The Showgirl Must Go On. Aubrey O’Day as Cardi B in “WAP” Music Video.
Police released other participants the same day but charged Safaryan with using force against a representative of an authority under Criminal Code article 316.1, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison. The authorities charged Safaryan with using violence against the police, and on January 3, a court granted a police investigator’s request to hold Safaryan in pretrial custody for two months. The court used the existing investigation to justify the decision to send him to pretrial custody, without looking into the substance of the new charges. Safaryan was transferred to Yerevan’s Nubarashen pretrial facility on January 3, after the court approved pretrial detention.
Police arrested Gevorg Safaryan at Yerevan’s Freedom Square at about 1 a.m. The authorities should also review police conduct at the gathering and possible police interference with the rights to freedom of thought, expression, and assembly. “Given the minor nature of the incident, two months of pretrial custody is wholly unjustified,” said Giorgi Gogia, South Caucasus director at Human Rights Watch. Safaryan’s lawyer told Human Rights Watch that the event organizers had notified the Yerevan city authorities in advance about their plans to hold a New Year’s celebration on Freedom Square. We encourage each family to develop their own approach to Halloween based on their own convictions and the options for celebration available to them.
