YEREVAN, MAY 22, NOYAN TAPAN. The RA NA Justice faction made a
proposal to set up a National Assembly ad hoc commission to examine
the current situation in the Armenian civil aviation and the causes of
the Armenian plane’s crash near Sochi on May 3. Secretary of Justice
Victor Dallakian at the May 22 sitting called on other deputies to join
the signature collecting campaign for convening a special session to
discuss the issue. The signature collection started on May 22 at 1:30
pm. According to V. Dallakian, in July 2003, the faction proposed
setting up a NA ad hoc commission to examine the RA government’s
activities in the civil aviation sector. In his words, this initiative
was torpedoed by the parliamentary majority. The deputy said that now
the matter concerns not only the general sitiation in civil aviation
but also the”mysterious circumstances” of the May 3 plane crash. In
case of availability of signatures of 44 deputies within 24 houres
after the signature collection has started, the draft law shall be
put on the agenda of the session and a four-day session. Then the
parliament will set about creating an ad hoc commission at a special
sitting scheduled for June 12. At around 6:00 pm, about 20 deputies
joined the Justice faction’s initiative.
