‘The right to hold rallies and the right of free expression are essential for the development of any state. I support the efforts of the Armenian government to make legislative reforms’ said Audronius Azubalis, head of the OSCE, at today’s joint press conference with Armenian Foreign Minister.
‘The law on rallies as well as the law on radio and television should be amended. And to ensure stability and democratization in society it’s important to make sure that the events of March 1, 2008 aren’t repeated. The reforms should consider the opinion of all the political groups and the society. The release of the remaining prisoners will further push Armenia forward’ said the chairman-in-office of the OSCE.
