Statement on behalf of the “Helsinki Association” human rights NGO

The “Helsinki Association” human rights NGO strongly condemns the incident that took place at the discussions of the UN Universal Periodic Review (UPR), initiated on April 5 by the Standing Committee on Human Rights and Public Affairs.

We consider the discriminatory attitudes and behavior of Naira Zohrabyan, Chairman of the RA NA Standing Committee on Human Rights Protection and Public Affairs, inadmissible. We consider the behavior of some MPs of calling for violence unacceptable too.

We call on law enforcement agencies to take steps to detect those having perpetrated death and violence threats, including MPs, by giving an appropriate assessment of their actions.
