September 4, Media Center hosted a press conference on Transitional Justice: Extreme or Necessity” attended by Avetik Ishkhanyan, president of Armenian Helsinki Committee.
“Transitional justice is not what the majority of our society thinks it is. It doesn’t come to substitute for courts. There can be an exception: when we have mass killings, civil war or genocide-like crimes. But most of such countries did not have juridical authority and international courts were set up”, said Ishkhanyan.
According to the human rights advocate transitional justice should not be viewed as new courts or thought of as “trios”.
