Arman Tatoyan, Armenia’s Human Rights Defender said The government should publish the draft document on the demarcation of the Republic of Armenia, which was partially published on the Internet yesterday and the authenticity of which was confirmed at today’s Government sitting. At least all the provisions of the document should be published, which give an idea of what it is really about.
The demarcation with Azerbaijan directly refers to the vital rights of all of us, every person living in Armenia, the entire Armenian people – life and existence, national and personal dignity, peace of mind and physical security, being informed and many other rights.
Restriction itself is a guarantee of human rights, the wrong implementation of which can lead to new human rights violations and tensions.
The publication of the document is in the interests of the state. In this way, the state will prevent the leakage of such exceptional information from unofficial sources, will not allow an irreparable loss of public trust in state bodies.
Otherwise, the information vacuum created by the state will again be filled with information from unofficial sources, confusing even honest people, and some officials will again start accusing people of imaginary “media terror” with their irresponsible posts, often flooded with insulting words.
