TWO PRESS ENEMIES AND NO FRIENDS

Armenian National Press Club held Monday annual traditional ceremony of
announcing names of press foes. Two persons – president Kocharyan and head
of parliamentary commission on culture, science and education Hranush
Hakobyan – are given press foe title this year.

This is the third time Robert Kocharyan has been “awarded” the title, this
time for adopting the Mass Media Law and for turning blind eye to violence
against journalists.

Hranush Hakobyan earned the title for her contribution to the law adoption,
for misleading MPs and suppressing international experts’ opinion.

Nominees for press friend title were National Assembly member Victor
Dallakyan and the Justice Union. However, there were not enough votes cast
for these candidacies.
