"Photos of Captives and Missing Persons on the Internet. What are the Consequences of this?
During the 44-day war, in the weeks that followed, photos of conscripts and volunteers who went to war were circulated on the Internet. Relatives and friends try to find their relatives by sharing their photo, place of service, phone number, and often other details.

On December 14, a process of exchanging prisoners took place. Our 44 compatriots returned to Armenia. Their photos were spread on social networks.

These personal data are constantly circulating; these publications, which at first glance are strong and have positive goals, can also have negative consequences.

On December 18, at 13:30, the Media Center held an online discussion entitled "Photos of prisoners and missing persons on the Internet. What are the consequences of this?".

The speakers of the discussion were:
- Gheorg Hayrapetyan, Head of the Personal Data Protection Agency of the RA Ministry of Justice
- Ashot Melikyan, Chairman of the Committee to Protect Freedom of Expression
- Arthur Papyan, media expert
