Armenia’s HR Protector Needs Protection Herself: New Times Party

ARMENIA’S HUMAN RIGHTS PROTECTOR NEEDS PROTECTION HERSELF: NEW TIMES
PARTY

YEREVAN, JUNE 7. ARMINFO. The New Times party condemns any
encroachments on the ombudsman institution – a visit card of any
democratic state.

The party expresses its solidarity with Armenia’s Ombudsman Larisa
Alaverdyan who has been consistently executing her duties in the last
year. However in Armenia any independent initiative is presently
persecuted in by the government and Alaverdyan and her initiatives are
no exception. The authorities are presently trying to legislatively
restrict Alaverdyan in her already restricted powers. It is
ridiculous but Armenia’s human rights protector appears to need
protection herself, says the party.
