The Ombudsman launched a discussion procedure on Asya Khachatryan’s caseOn March 26, at 20:20 pm, epress.am released a material with the headline: “Karabakh policemen to Asya Khachatryan: Go and require law in Armenia” and attached posted a video footage which showed Asya Khachatryan’s claims on committing illegal acts against her by Artsakh Republic Police.
Based on the video footage and guided by Article 15 of the AR Law on Human Rights Ombudsman, the Human Rights Ombudsman of the Republic of Artsakh made a decision to initiate a discussion procedure.
If Asya Khachatryan’s allegations are true, then the actions of the officers of the AR Police are unacceptable and should be subjected to a strict legal assessment.
At the same time, we clarify that the content of the telephone conversation with the AR Ombudsman presented in the video and newsletter is incomplete and partially incorrect. In fact, the AR Ombudsman clarified to A.Khachatryan the effective remedies in this situation; moreover, he encouraged the latter to use them. And the citizen noted that she would present her claims to the AR Human Rights Ombudsman’s institution in written form. But the AR Ombudsman’s office had not received any written complaints on the mentioned facts.
The Human Rights Ombudsman’s institution of the Republic of Artsakh will be consistent in providing adequate legal response to A.Khachatryan’s claims and will take all measures envisaged by the law in this direction. Additional information will be provided to the public concerning further discussion procedure. Strengthening of legal culture in Artsakh and guaranteeing human rights, has been and remains the credo and priority mission of the The Human Rights Ombudsman’s institution of the Republic of Artsakh.
