STANDING IS FORBIDDEN

On April 11, www.a1plus.am published a report about the regular session of the Armenian parliament. In the conclusion, the piece noted that the representatives of the RA National Assembly’s security service “today informed the parliamentary journalists that, upon the order of the NA Speaker, they should not stand at the window”, fencing the spots for the press from the session room. Upon the security service’s demand, “the journalists may stand only at the last row”. “This order restricts the work of the journalists, specifically, from now on, it will be impossible to shoot how the RPA (Republican Party of Armenia, Ed.Note) deputies, sitting in the end rows, vote in each other’s place,” www.a1plus.am stressed.
