Armenian Official Rejects U.S. Rights Criticism

A senior member of the ruling Republican Party (HHK) on Monday rejected the latest U.S. criticism of Armenia’s human rights record which is contained in an annual global report released by the State Department.

“The most significant human rights problems during the year were limitations on the right of citizens to change their government, corruption and lack of transparency in government, and the limited independence of the judiciary,” reads the report made public late last week. “Courts remained subject to political pressure from the executive branch, which resulted in some politically motivated prosecutions and sentencing,” it says.
