February 17, 12:00

A discussion on “Are the Reforms in the Parole System of the Prisoners Realistic?” was held at Media Center on February 17. 

Suren Krmoyan, RADeputy Minister of Justice, Gohar Simonyan, Head of Torture and Ill-Treatment Prevention Department, Human Rights Defender of Armenia, Arthur Sakunts, Head of Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office, Robert Revazyan, Advocate at the Helsinki Committee of Armenia, participated in the discussion.

On February 7, the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia passed a vital initiative to simplify the parole system.
