ACTIONS OF RA MINISTRY OF HEALTH ARE HELD UNLAWFUL

On November 30 RA Administrative Court secured the suit of Committee to Protect Freedom of Expression versus RA Ministry of Health. On February 11, 2011 the CPFE inquired the Ministry on information about journalists, who had been accredited or refused of accreditation. Not receiving an answer, on March 25 CPFE addressed the Court, demanding to hold the actions of the Ministry unlawful and bind it with replying to the inquiry. The suit was taken into consideration on March 29, the hearings started on July 9.

According to the November 30 Administrative Court ruling, the actions of the Ministry were held unlawful. It should be also noted that during the litigations the plaintiff refused his other demand, as after filing the court it had received the inquired information.
