“ARMENTEL” REFUTES

In “Iravunk” newspaper of December 2-8, 2005 a report “Spies are Sought” was
published. According to the piece, the RA General Prosecutor’s Office demanded
that “ArmenTel” telecommunications company “to report every two ours about all
telephone conversations of the most informed opposition journalists”. The newspaper
referred to a source, close to “ArmenTel”, noting that, as the source supposed,
“in this way the Prosecutor’s Office tries to reveal all the representatives
of the power team that provide journalists with confidential information on
the sentiments within the administration and its ‘secret’ steps”.

As YPC was told by the press-secretary of “ArmenTel” Hasmik Chutilian, the General
Prosecutor’s Office did not address them with such requests.
