Approaches of “Partnership for Open Society” Initiative Regarding COMPREHENSIVE AND EXTENDED PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT To Be Signed between the European Union and the Republic of Armenia

Defense counsel insists that young men charged with theft were forced to provide self-confession testimony; the case is in court (video)
T. Grigoryan and Z. Naslyan were arrested and then detained on charges of committing a theft in July, 2017 and currently are kept at ‘Vanadzor’ penitentiary facilities. The charges are based on their self-confession testimonies which the accused later denied.
After repeated inquiries by HCA Vanadzor, we got replies from H. Muradyan, RA Military Enlistment and Registration Officer, and then on October 10, 2017 from M. Hakobyan, Chief of the General Staff of RA Armed Forces, stating that H. P. was not subject to conscription and military registration in RA.
