Armenian organization calls for revising Law on Sects

December 8, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

An Armenian alliance of NGOs has called for joint efforts towards combating harmful sects.
At a news conference on Saturday, President of the One Nation Alliance Gor Tamazyan, urged the government to reconsider its approaches to non-political sects, otherwise predicting a slimming of the budget due to Jehovah’s Witnesses winning cases against Armenia at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).
“That organization is a totalitarian sect and contains anti-national elements,” he said, noting that a foreign-funded organization can never serve national interests.
Commenting on the recent ECtHR lawsuit that saw Jehovah’s Witnesses evading the military win a case against the Republic of Armenia, Tamazyan said that deserters’ success in the European Court sets a bad precedent to others.
