Ombudsman Larisa Alaverdyan has taken another step to strengthen the
formation of distrust in this institution, which is designed to
protect human rights in Armenia.
On 23 April, Mrs Alaverdyan refused to set in motion an application by
the wife of academician Rafael Kazaryan, Grizelda Kazaryan, in which
Mrs Kazaryan indicated facts of violence against her and her son on
Bagramyan Avenue on 13 April.
“Bearing in mind that under Article 10 of the Armenian law ‘On
protection of human rights’, the ombudsman does not consider
complaints, problems contained in it could be resolved by another
state body or officials,” a decision to reject the application said.
Grizelda Kazaryan’s complaints should be considered by the
prosecutor’s (office) of the Arabkir and Kanaker-Zeytun community,
ombudsman Alaverdyan believes.
