"HERITAGE" PARTY TURNED TO COURT DEMANDING ANNULMENT OF THE DECREE OF THE ARMENIAN PRESIDENT ON THE STATE OF EMERGENCY
March 14, 2008
Yerevan /Mediamax/. Oppositional "Heritage" party turned to the
Administrative Court of Armenia today demanding annulment of the
decree of President Robert Kocharian on imposing a state of emergency.
As Mediamax was told in "Heritage", the appeal of the party asserts
that by suspending the activities of democratic institutions and
specifically restricting the work of media, the Armenian President
contradicts the requirements both of Armenian law and of the European
Convention on Human Rights.
"Heritage" presented a petition to the Court on taking up measures to
secure the fulfillment of the appeal: to forbid the Armenian President
to impose further restrictions on civil liberties, as well as for
ruling to expedite judicial consideration of the case.
