THE RIGHTS OF “ARAVOT” READERS WILL NOW BE DEFENDED BY A MEDIA OMBUDSMAN

On February 13 “Aravot” reported that the daily now has its media ombudsman
(reader’s editor). By an agreement between the owner, the Chief Editor of “Aravot”
Aram Abrahamian and the Committee to Protect Freedom of Expression, this position
is taken by the Expert of the Committee Mesrop Harutiunian. As YPC was told
by Mesrop Harutiunian, his main responsibility as media ombudsman will be to
stand for the rights of “Aravot” readers. Mesrop Harutiunian will also have
a column in “Aravot” – monthly at this stage – to present topics of interest
to the audience.
