HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST DEMANDS TO INSTITUTE CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST CORRESPONDENT OF “HAYOTS ASHKHAR”

On April 28 the Chairman of Helsinki Association of Armenia Mikael Danielian addressed a letter to the RA General Prosecutor Aghvan Hovsepian demanding to institute criminal proceedings against the correspondent of “Hayots Ashkhar” daily Kima Eghiazarian on clauses 2 and 3 of Article 135 of the RA Criminal Code (“Libel”). The reason for the appeal was the article by Kima Eghiazarian titled “Mika’s Hullabaloo for the Council of Europe”
("Hayots Ashkhar”, April 24, 2004) where, in the opinion of the human rights activist, an “ungrounded conclusion” is made that Mikael Danielian is “the spy of the Council of Europe in Armenia”.
