June 26 is the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, adopted by the United Nations.
In 2015, when the Criminal Code of the Republic of Armenia was amended and supplemented by Articles 309-1, it was expected that the officials with whose participation the torture cases took place would not go unpunished.
For five years, however, Armenian courts have not convicted anyone under this article.
